      Re: acquiring network address

      You are absolutely right. I had been trying everything to get the wireless connection to work and I was connecting but could not get an IP address assigned. If I used a fixed IP I could connect but it kept dropping the connection. I had read two capital I's as 1 (ones) so I had also put the network key in incorrectly.

      Thanks you saved the router from going out of the window.

      Take my advice, disable DHCP, it's too unreliable on wireless networks and set manual IPs up on the router, then enter one of these into your PC's network settings, Job done! This will stop the device acquiring a network address as it already knows it's IP and should be a lot faster connecting.

      I can't BELIEVE this is the fault but it's true. If anyone is reading this looking for solutions to "acquiring network address" and it's all connected otherwise then, like me, you won't believe it but the likely fault really is that you typed in the network key without the caps lock on. I followed the instructions below to re-enter the key and it worked! I was really going mad. I can't believe it accepted the wrong key without an error message but it did and now - re-entered in CAPS - it realy does work. Save yourself a headache and just try it. Thanks so much to previous users who posted this advice.


      Control panel>Network connections>Right click on wireless network>select view availabilty wireless network> click on change advanced setting> click on middle tab "wireless network tab"> removed everything listed under preferred networks> click ok> RESET THE ROUTER> BACK INTO..........
      Control panel>Network connections>Right click on wireless network>select view availabilty wireless network> REFRESH THE NETWORK LIST> select your network> enter network key>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
