Question about Computers & Internet
I have a new laptop and while I see the signal strength is excellent
the wireless sometimes failing to
acquire network address.
Its not something with the wireless since I have another laptop and that one hasn’t having problem acquiring the network address and the bizarre thing is that its not consistent sometimes its succeed and sometimes it’s not.
Anyone have any ideas?
If you are using the dell wireless utility to manage your card, then disable it, and manage your wireless adapter through the windows network connections. that way the wpa issue will be solved by windows xp wpa. i had a similar problem with my inspiron 1525 (dell wireless 1395)

I need to know the make and model of the computer and the make and model of the wireless router or access point you are trying to gain access to.Also what opeating system are you using? Is it Windows XP, Vista, Apple etc.? For troubleshooting purposes please have all wirless phones away from computer. I hane also noticed certain wirless mice people use with their laptops will interfere with getting a IP address from router. Please let me have all this information before you rate me. It is not possible to troubleshoot this problem without all the information I have requested.
