Let's setup DHCP then for you.

go to please...

start, control panel, network and sharing centre,
manage network connections, right click the LAN connection and choose properties, double click internet protocol ver 4, when the dialog box appears, check that you are configured here for
" obtain an I.P address automatically "
click this circle if not,

you are now setup for DHCP
auto I.P. address assignment.
reboot now.
try the internet now

No internet connection, system stuck on ''acquiring ntwrk address''

It's doing this because it's not getting the IP from either the router or the modem. Goto Start, run and type cmd. Now type ipconfig /all. On this this list you should see IP address = 192.168.??.?? andDefault Gateway = 192.168.??.??. If your getting both of these addresses then your system if infected with virus. I suspect though that your list is probably not filled out. If so type ipconfig /flush dns. Then type ipconfig /renew. These commands should bring you back online, if not I would call Conmcast and have theme ping the modem. If the modem pings fine I would say that either your modem cable or network card are faulty.

Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network

Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Maybe this will help?

Acquiring Address Problem

you will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

That seems to be a normal result (Lack of intenet access) if you are pulling down torrents if your router is configured as DHCP. UTorrent recommends static IP addressing to optimise the application.

You can restore your connectivity by closing the uTorrent application by right-clicking the icon in the taskbar and exiting the program completely.
