Cannot aquire IP address through my Desktop using Lynksis Wireless Router
My desktop seems to get hung up in the "renewing your IP address" function when I do a "repair connection" operation. I have re-booted both the modem and the router and It can easily aquire the ip address through the other two laptops I have, but not through the desktop.

You Have not Mention What Wireless Router are you using, To set Dynamic IP you need to Enter inside the router Configuration Page. Your Router most have one Default IP address, user name and the password, by using any web browser and typing the default IP of the router on Address bar of web browser you can enter to its configuration page. One You get in to Configuration Page you'll find Wireless setting, there you can Change it to Dynamic IP.
A dark "DOS" windows will appear
At the prompt, type: ipconfig
Note the "IP Address" (probably 192.168.1.2)
type: ipconfig /renew
Note the IP Address
If it has changed, then you are ok. Type: exit and press [ENTER]
If it did not change, then try this on the other computer.
If that didn't change either, the go to the Control Panel
Find the wireless or wired network adapter and Right-Click
In the Properties window, double-click "IP Address"
See the IP Address assigned? change the last digit by one number.
Example: if the IP Address is 192.168.1.2 then change to 192.168.1.3
First, you ned to login into your router (check the manuals for this, Netgear has this printed behind the router near Serial no. etc). Enable DHCP settings, allocate IP-address range say 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.5 (enough for 5 computers connecting via this router). Next, configure each computer to accept new IP-address from router by enabling DHCP. The settings on a Windows XP Professional Desktop: Need administrator access to your desktop, right-click on Network icon, Internet Protocol TCP/IP Properties, click on Properties button, then select Advanced properties, you can set DHCP from here.
The laptop CAN NOT have the same IP address of the desktop because is another station. The IP address is generated automatically from your wireless router, one different for each computer that you have on the network.
For that reason you have to renew the ip on your laptop.

it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems.
Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked.
Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address.
Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
