I used the recovery media to restore a friends Acer laptop to a fresh install. Everything went like a dream until it came to installing the Linksys wireless adaptor, we installed the Linksys software & it got an association with the router but no internet connection.

I tried ipconfig /release, it was already released, then ipconfig /renew, it could not renew for some reason? Could it be the XP native wireless configuration & the Linksys software trying to connect over each other? In which case what can I do? Anything else it could be?

Thanks

Hi fleamour,

Have you tried giving the Linksys wireless adaptor a static address? Also does your friends router have an 'allowed' list like Netgear router's which require the mac address of the adaptor to be included in the allowed connections list?

regards,

I've never used a static address, the wireless adaptor was working fine with the laptop before the issue. If the router does have MAC address filtering it accepted it before.
