Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just installed a wireless router and it stays on acquiring network address. Occasionally it will change to an automatic status, but then it goes right back to acquiring network address. Do I need to do something else to keep it from searching for a network address?

Have a Belkin N150 router. Status constantly says acquiring network address. If you go to the support part it says invalid ip address.


Make sure your wireless card is set to acquire the IP address automatically. You can do this by going into:
  1. Go to "Start Menu >> Control Panel >> Network Connections"
  2. Right-Click on "Wireless Network Connection"
  3. Click on "Properties"
  4. Double-Click "Internet Protocol" which you should be able to see in the small list in the box
  5. Now you will be able to see an option to "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically". make sure that both of these options are selected.
If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, the flow is the same, but certain options are labeled differently:
  1. Go to "Start Menu >> Control Panel >> Network and Sharing Center"
  2. Click on "Manage Network Connections", which is located on the left hand side of the window.
  3. Right-Click on "Wireless Network Connection"
  4. Click on "Properties"
  5. Double-Click "Internet Protocol Version 4" which you should be able to see in the small list in the box
  6. Now you will be able to see an option to "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically". make sure that both of these options are selected.
  7. Repeat 'STEP 4 and 5', but this time select "Internet Protocol Version 6".
you can check the IP address of the connection by checking ipconfig:
  1. Click on "Start >> Run" or "Start >> Start Search bar"
  2. type in "cmd" and then press "Enter"
  3. In the black box that appears on screen, type in "ipconfig" and hit "Enter"
  4. This will give you a long list of information about your connection. There should be a small heading called "Wireless LAN Adapter Wireless Network Connection" or "Ethernet Adapter Wireless Network Connection".
  5. This will have an "IP Address" or and "IPv4 Address". If the IP Address starts with 192.168., then it means it should be functioning properly. If it gives you a 169.254. address, it means the laptop is likely faulty.
Hope this helps

Installed this driver and everything installed ok except it can't aquire network address


Computer not able to acquire the IP address is not an issue with the wireless adapter all-together. Check the device status for this Wireless N Mini USB wireless adapter under the Network Adapter category. It should say: This device is working properly.
If this is the case, you may check for any driver updates with the manufacturer.
Check for any Firewalls like Norton, McAfee, Zonealarm, Comodo, etc. Turn them off or configure them properly.
Update the operating system using Windows Automatic Updates.
On the wireless transmitter, try changing the wireless security type as "WEP" preferably 64-bit WEP with a hexadecimal password.
Finally, if even that doesn't help, try to assign static IP on the wireless network connection by right clicking on Wireless Network Connections and click Properties. Now ensure a tick next to Internet Protocol version 4. Highlight it and click on Properties on this page. Refer to your wireless router or wireless modem vendor to get this assigned.

For further clarifications, please revert!
Thanks for asking.

Netgear wg111v2 wireless usb adapter wont acquire ip address


Not sure if this is where you are looking, but it probably is. click START then CONNECT TO then SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTION click STATUS then SUPPORT,,,
or CONTROL PANEL then NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTIONS then click STATUS then SUPPORT tab
See what you have there for an IP address
Is it the computer you don't have an IP for or the router? In my case my computer IP the 8th or last digit is the next number after what it is for the router. The other numbers are the same

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 connect wirelessly, but can through my network cable


After a few tries and re starts it may connect itself, but if not go to Start>Run, then type 'ipconfig /flushdns'. Try connecting again, but ensure your wireless card is set to obtain IP address automatically and you have enabled wireless connection and DHCP in your routers menu. Hope this helps
