I previously posted here about getting blue screens and was redirected to a program which helped me determine the cause of these blue screens.
After determining that the blue screens were likely caused by a wireless driver, I decided to uninstall and reinstall the driver. Now the problem is, I can't get back on the internet.
I use a Netgear WNDA3100 v1.
I tried to connect through WNDA3100 v1's provided wireless connection, but couldn't connect to the internet at all. So I tried to connect through the Windows XP service.
When this happens, the connection often is "stuck" at Acquiring Network Address before claiming "Limited or No connectivity" or "Not Connected". I have made sure to enter the exact WEP key every time while trying to connect, I have disabled firewalls, and I still can't connect to the internet. The router appears to be working fine, since I can access the internet fine on this laptop.
As with nearly every instance I have searched online, I have tried to repair the network and I get an "Invalid IP Address" message.
I was able to resolve this issue the first time I got the adapter a year ago, but I can't remember how I solved this issue. It's absolutely baffling me and any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

What finally got me working was to unplug my modem for 2 minutes. Plugged it back and I was up and running.

Well first step would be to check you network adapter in control panel. Follow these instructions just to have a quick check.
Go to CONTROL PANEL > NETWORK AND INTERNET CONNECTIONS > then pick NETWORK CONNECTIONS.
You can then see the state of your network adapter, which may say Connected, disabled, unplugged or not connected or limited or no connectivity. I'd image it's the latter obviously, but just have a quick check anyway.
If it indeed says limited or no connectivity by the adapter in the Network Connections window, right-click your network adapter, and then click Repair. Here's a little guide.
There are other steps to try, but just check those for starters.

Can you bypass your router? And if you can, be sure to turn off the modem 2 minutes as well.
