I am trying to connect to a Dlink wireless router from a laptop. The router can see the MAC address of the laptop, but the laptop can not obtain a vaild IP address, instead returns an IP address of 169.254.190.203

I know it is porbalbe a simple solution but after 2 hours im stumped

In XP go to Control Panel>Network Connections and right click the wireless connection and select properties. Under the General Tab scroll down and select the TCP/IP and select properties again. Make sure that both settings are set to "Obtain automatically".

If that doesn`t work post back the model of router and the actual OS you are using.
