So, Im out of town with my laptop and it says I am connected to my families wireless network (secured and password accepted) BUT when I try to pull up an internet page it says "page cannot be displayed".

I clicked repair and it goes until the end landing and sticking on "acquiring network address" then just rolls there....forever...with no end.

Did the *start - run - ipconfig-- without any results.

any ideas?

You might try to "ping" an address to see if you are getting out on the net. Do the Start/run and in that window type
"ping www.google.com" without the quotes. You should get something like the following:
sh-3.00# ping www.google.com
PING www.l.google.com ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=247 time=234.6 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=247 time=255.0 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=247 time=244.9 ms

--- www.l.google.com ping statistics ---
[b]3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss[/b]
round-trip min/avg/max = 234.6/244.8/255.0 ms
notice the line that says 0% packet loss which means the data is getting thru and back.
