      Acquiring Network Address

      I'd had Sky Midi broadband for about 2 weeks now. It worked wirelessly for a good few days. Nonetheless, one day when I tried to connect wirelessly, my laptop attempted to connect to the router but got no further than "acquiring network address." I can get a connection through the ethernet no problem and I can also access the router but just getting the internet connection to pass wirelessly is the problem. I remember a friend a while ago having a similar problem with Tiscali and he had to change his settings from automatically detecting IP to manually entering them.

      Any suggestions? Thanks

      First thing to try is power cycle the router. Then try re-entering the wireless key.

      As soon as you get in, go to the router settings and turn off uPNP. I hear all kinds of bad stuff about sky's implementation of that.
