Hello, I'm hoping this isn't a big problem, but you never know =P

My computer last night suffered a power outage. I have it hooked up to a surge suppressor so I'm not fearing any kind of damage from a surge.

My network connects to the wireless point but does not find internet.

All the other computers on the network work fine and have no problems.

After doing an ipconfig I found that it comes up with no IP Address, no Default Gateway, no nothing.

I can't ping anything except loopback address, which returns fine.

I'm running Windows XP Pro.
My wireless adapter is a Linksys Wireless Adapater WMP54GS.

It's been working 100% a ok until last night's power outage.

Thank you

Problem resolved.

After noticing my ZoneAlarm still working and wondering "Hm, how is it doing anything if there's no internet activity?" I tried turning it off.

What do you know? It works. I turned it back on and all is good. =)

I am whole again. lol
