I'm having some issues with the Dell Latitude D510 laptop at my office which runs Windows XP Home Edition. The laptop won't stop "acquiring network address".
About a week ago, our tech guy created a new wireless network and connected all of the other computers to it fine, they are plugged into the router though. The laptop was still "connected" to the old network (which was basically no connection because he deleted it or something) and so I went to connect it to the new one. I am able to connect to the new network and it has good signal strength, however it's just stuck on acquiring network address.
I've tried resetting the modem and router and typing some commands into command prompt (I forget which, something I found from a quick google search). The settings say that it's set to automatically acquire the network address. The IP address reads all 0's. Also it worked perfectly fine until the new network was created so I don't think this is a hardware issue.
I've tried browsing the forums a bit but nothing stood out as being similar to my problem. Any ideas? Thanks everyone
