Acquiring Network Address fails

  Graham. 19:49 10 Jan 2008

Netgear Wireless Router, Sky broadband. Works wirelessly with my laptop.

Friend has obtained a second-hand Advent laptop. Wouldn't work at his sisters, so brought it up here. It stalls on 'Acquiring Network Address'.

With a wired connection to my router, I've tried to update the driver, without success.

It's an Intel Pro/Wireless 2200 BG.

Any ideas, please.

Thanks, not a Sky problem though. It's a duff laptop. Why people buy second hand stuff is beyond me.

Faulty wireless card. Owner advised.

Did you try a USB wireless adapter to test?
