I have a Samsung notebook with XP as an OS. I have an internal Atheros AR5007EG wireless card. When I tunr on my computer it keeps looking for an IP address but never findes one and times out. Any suggestions to fix this?

if your wireless ON it will always looking a connection (wifi)...
if you doesnt want like that...you could disable it...
and turn it on if you want a wifi connection...

To solve the problem, just give it a static IP, to do this...just go to

start -> control panel -> network connections -> right click on your wifi connection ->

(then you should see a box appear, and a list)

Scroll down and click internet protocol

and then click "use the following ip"
Where it says IP put "" then click ok..and then ok again, then restart, and it should work. this fixes it, becuase instead of your router telling it the ip, the computer is telling the router the ip.
