Question about Computers & Internet
For some reason your laptop isn't resolving DHCP (in real terms, it's either asking for a network address and getting no reply, or getting a reply it can't understand).
There are a couple of ways to go about solving it.
- try turning any security or encryption the wireless router is using off. If you can connect without security, the problem is in the security settings, not the hardware.
- Check for the router setting called "DHCP server enabled". This should be set to ON. Your router manual will tell you where this may be found. If it's not set to ON then the router won't talk to your network card.
- If these things fail, make sure your computer is running DHCP and asking correctly. To do this, go into Control Panel, Computer Management and look in the Services list for DHCP. If this service is disabled, enable it. If it seems okay, click on it and select "Restart the service" Try again when the service has been restarted.
