      Unable to obtain IP address

      Hi all,
      At around 1330hrs today, my ADSL line was sucessfully migrated from Tiscali to Sky, on the day Sky promised. I am really impressed.
      However,

      I am unable to wirelessly connect to my pc's using the supplied router.
      Both my pc's find the router and are able to sustain a link (i am getting EXCELLENT signal strength) but it just says acquiring network address. It never connects. All settings are straight from the box (ie, WPA etc...)and I am able to connect via ethernet with no problems.

      I did try changing to WEP, but same still happened.

      Have resorted to using my old Belkin router, using WEP and all is well (am using it to send this)

      Any ideas would be most helpful.

      Tony

      Thanks,
      However I am still getting the same problem. It just seems like the router isn't providing the ip address to my pc's. Checked and DHCP is on.

      Ha!

      In true PC style, I tried to set it up again, just the same as before, and this time it worked!
      After all that , its back in the box with it, as I prefer the Belkin.

      Thanks for the help guys.
