I have a Thinkpad T21, corporate, that 48 hours ago was able to get on the Internet just fine and now is giving me DHCP errors that appear to happen for both its wired and wireless connections.

For wireless I'm using a Netgear WG111v2 wireless usb adapter. I just came back from a 6-week camp at Carnegie Mellon university and I'm not sure if my network settings were somehow changed while I was there, but the most confusing part is that I was able to get on via wireless on Saturday night, yet now it's connecting to the router (Netgear WGR614v6) and not going anywhere afterwards. My computer's running Windows 200, btw.

The main point is that the computer seems to be able to connect to the router, and its signals are getting stuck there. I can't actually log in to the router, so I'm thinking that the problem is in the computer itself, not the router. My other computer, a T23 Windows XP, is able to get on just fine...so that leaves me with no idea what's going on. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Cipherdiez

It doesn't sound like there is anything wrong with your PC as you have said you are able to connect at home. It seems as if the router has been reconfigured and your laptop was not on the list of allowed mac addresses or doesn't match security?

Check with the person who configured your router for your company.
