When I connect to my wireless network, it never fully connects. It always says acquiring network address but I can still use the internet. Why does it do this?

is that before this you are using fix ip address to connect
just reset your ip address which is in your DHCP range
or set it as automatic ip addresss

Best guess is it is a bug because mine does that occasionally.
Even though i'm fully connected the little tray icon says:
"Acquiring Network Address"
Sometimes if it annoys me i do the Right Click - Repair to fix it.
