Only one screen will not go online, says cant find ip address


This might be due to several causes. First of all, reboot your router AND your PC. If that doesn't fix it, a few possible situations remain:
- If you're getting this message on a secured wireless connection, you might have filled in a wrong network key.
- Your network card may be malfunctioning. Try reinstalling your network card drivers and see if that helps.

I AM GETTING A MESSAGE 'ACQUIRING NETWORK ADDRESS' MESSAGE, IT SAYS I AM CONNECTING BUT NO ACTUAL INTERNET


If you are using Windows 7, this can happen. If you own the network, and know the address range, disable Automatic IP on the machine, and give it a static IP address. Make sure you indicate the gateway and DNS server addresses as well.

The wap54G is having issues. Computers trying to connect to it keep acquiring ip address and never connecting. Any advice on what might be wrong?


Hi williamrayes,

If you have a message that acquiring ip address you can Power Cycle the router for 2 minutes then try to connect again or you can try to check if the Network Key that your typing is correct (If the connection is secured). You can check the Network Key of your router by accessing the Wireless Settings Page of your router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security, You can personalize the Network Key if your want. Save the settings then try to connect.

Rate me if this helps so I can help others.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Using Nintendo Wireless Adapter - No Connection Anymore


If available networks are found, it means that the wireless adapter is working just fine. In case of Wi-Fi, the device has to acquire an IP address from the wireless router and the mutual communication is not taking place. This has something to do with the wireless router. Check for any kind of security filtering like MAC address filtering or lower down the encryption technique to 64-bit WEP. Try connecting to even an unsecured network, then check for the automatically acquired IP address. It should never be starting with 169.254.xx.xx (Invalid)
If you have other wireless computers going online in the same network, without security and filtering, then it means that your DS Lite is not acquiring an IP address. In that critical case, you may have to statically or manually assign an IP address in the range of the router.
And lastly, as you said LAN connection is active, it would be because it doesn't face any hardships while connecting!

Thanks..
Do get back if you need further clarifications.

Cannot get online


Please try the following steps to check if there is any issue with TCP/IP protocol
TCP/IP protocol is resposible for getting IP address. You can determine if you have a TCP/IP problem by doing the following.

Put in the windows XP CD and navigate to the support >Tools folder. Double click setup and do a Complete install.
Click Start >run >cmd {enter}
Type netdiag /test:winsock /v {enter}
this will provide information if there is any problem in TCP/IP protocol due to winsock issue. If problem found then try the following steps
To Reset the Winsock Registry Entries

Click Start >Run >regedit {enter}
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock and delete it; just below that, see HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2 and delete it
Exit Regedit and reboot.
To Reinstall TCP/IP

To do this you need a copy of nettcpip.inf. There is one on the Windows XP CD and there may be one on your hard drive at C:\WINDOWS\inf\nettcpip.inf. Note: To see the inf folder, open My Computer and go to the menu item Tools > Folder Options... > View > and choose Show hidden files and folders.
Right click "My Network Places" select Properties.
Right click the connection(s) and select Properties.
Click Install >Protocol >add >have disk.
Browse to the location of nettcpip.inf .
Select nettcpip.inf then click Open then OK then Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then OK then Close
Reboot

"acquiring network address" problem


The password might have been changed that's why you keep getting "acquiring network address", the password is incorrect. What you can do is just reset the router. There's a reset button at the back of it, press and hold it down for 10 seconds then release, unplug the power now for 10 seconds then plug it back in. That will disable the wireless password, just re-enable it.

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.

Cannot acquire network address from access point


then it seems thatb the wireless security key for your network is incorrect, make sure if you are entering the key correctly..
or else..
check if you are able to go online with the router wired first, if yes, then the w/ls settings has to be checked..open your w/ls network connection, remove your preferred wireless network and then try to reconnect again and check.. if you are not able to gon online wired with the router, disconnect power cables from modem- router , wait for 10 sec, and reconnect it , wait till all the lights come up and then reconnect, check if you are able to go online if not your router has to be reconfigured,,

plz check and revert back in case of any issues
