      Laptop won't acquire ip address.

      Hi,

      I'm having a problem where my laptop will not connect to my sky router. The connection shows under my connection list begins to connect and gets as far as "acquiring ip address", it then just doesn't connect and keeps repeating this process. The laptop worked fine one day and the next began doing this. I have an xbox and another desktop pc connected no problem. I have tried chnging wireless channels, password, wireless name...uninstalling wireless drivers...nothing has worked.

      Please help!

      Re: Laptop won't acquire ip address.

      I'd try setting the IP address for your laptop manually. I'd suggest you use:

      IP 192.168.0.101
      Submask 255.255.255.0
      Gateway 192.168.0.1

      You might also like to set DNS to:

      208.67.222.222
      208.67.220.220
