| | Dummies guide to solving 'acquiring network address problem'
I don't believe i have to register to voice my excitement that i got my laptop to go wireless.
But here goes.. ok after reading so many blogs and forums on the problem, and having tried everything.. my laptop could not go wireless BTW i am not very good with networking and technical stuff, call me a NEWBIE, it did go wireless before perfectly, but now it gives me 'Acquiring network address' (stalls), and connectivity status: Strong.
But thank god for younger brother who came back from holiday, who stated the obvious.
The problem was that my laptop was carrying a out of date wireless card, or adapter, still works perfectly but is not compatible with the new wireless router. New wireless router, or more up to-date wireless routers carry many new features, which my old wireless card cannot access. So one solution is to limit the new features on the wireless adpater, to make it compitable with your wireless card. or get an update wireless card or adpater.
hope this helps if everything else fails
