limited or no connectivity

hi, I have a problem with "limited or no connectivity".

I have bought a belkin 54mb usb adaptor to try and give me wireless connectivity in a 2nd desktop pc, an e-machines with XP operating system. my main pc is an hp pavillion with XP operating system which connects to the internet via a BT Voyager router. I already have a laptop on the network (Toshiba, XP os) which has no problems connecting to the internet wirelessly. i keep getting "limited or no connectivity" when it is trying to acquire the network address. anybody have any ideas what could be causing this, for info the oldest computer in the network is the laptop which is 9 months old so they are all decent spec PCs - let me know if you need any more info

thanks in advance

hi, i reset the router to factory settings, uninstalled then re-installed my wireless adaptor on the 2nd pc - bingo - now works a treat with solid connection. thanks to all who replied

Can you let me know whether you have kept the DHCP server on or attempted to assign addresses manually (that is an option worth considering) and whether you installed the adapter management software or just the device driver? I'll be back later.

ade - i just held in the reset button on the router for 10 secs, it went through a sort of power recycle and then all the buttons went green again to signify the router was working again. i totally uninstalled the adaptor, then reinstalled it which also appears to install the drivers again.

Oh, so it's solved then. Your thread wasn't ticked when I posted.
