I recently bought an old P3 tower for cheap on Ebay, bought a wireless card separately and connected them to a 15" monitor I bought for $5 a while back, hooked up a spare keyboard, mouse and speakers and voila, a computer for my bedroom that can connect through my wireless router!
...Or not. I had the wireless connection working two days ago, first without encryption and then running fine with WEP enabled. I was even able to share directories from my main Athlon machine. Now, with or without encryption my P3's wireless card is unable to pull a good IP address from the router and of course ends up assigning itself a 169 address. My signal strength is great, I'm using just one 10 digit hexadecimal WEP key and have the access list of MAC addresses disabled ("allow all").
Again, it was working fine before and I've tried resetting the router to no avail. What else should I be looking for?
