It doesn't help that I showed the wrong picture. Windows XP wireless connections don't look like the picture I posted. *Sorry about that*
*You will need to temporarily disable your Local Area Connection to perform this task* Otherwise, you'll get ip address conflicting.
Let's try this.
1.Hold Windows key *It's the key that's right beside the Alt on the left* and press R. This will open a run dialog box.
2.Type cmd and hit enter.
3. A black box will pop up which is called a command prompt.
4. Type ipconfig /all and write down all the values that you see starting with IP address and ending with DNS servers. *This will be under your local area connection*
5.Go to Start-Control Panel-Network and Internet Connections-Network Connections.
6.Find your wireless connection adapter, right click and go to properties.
7. You should see Internet Protocols (TCP/IP)
8. Click on this and select properties.
9. Change where it says obtain automatically to specify and then enter the same values that you copied from step 4.
10. Click ok and then Close
11. Perform the same steps you mentioned above to connect
*THIS IS GOING TO TEST IF THE HOMEOWNER IS USING DHCP, OR FORCING STATIC ADDRESS'*
