Argh this is getting annoying now. I have a WN121T wireless network adapter so i can connect to the net via the DG834N router. Two other wired pcs and a wireless laptop (using its built in adapter) can connect to the net fine.

I am trying to get a second laptop to connect via the WN121T usb adapter. Windows picks it up ok and the netgear software says i'm connected wireless at 245 Mbps. I can't view any webpages though (other devices can)

The taskbar icon will says acquiring network for a while and then assign the ip to 0.0.0.0. After a few more minutes the ip changes to 192.168.0.1 (the ip of the router). I have tried assigning it manually (even though the DHCP server is running on the router) with no luck.

Any ideas how i can get this thing working?
