Having problems getting online. I have 20mb virgin broadband and have recently took there offer of their wireless router. I live with 6 others and 5 of them have had no problems connecting to the new wireless network. I have a desktop pc and used to connect to the net via a router. I cant connect via this router nor with a usb wireless router i have. The network connection is made but says 'acquiring ip address' then goes dead. It seems to recognise the network on my pc but it wont allow to browse the net
What type of encryption is set up in the Router - WEP, WPA, WPA2 etc - as it may be a type not supported by your Wireless Network Adapter? If this is the case, the adapter will be unable to negotiate a connection to the router and won't get its IP address.
The adapter's TCP/IPv4 settings must already configured to obtain its IP address automatically, otherwise it wouldn't be trying to "acquire IP address" - it would already have one (though not necessarily a correct one).
right mgmcc you were right.Thanks! Ive changed the encryption to WPA2 and that has solved the issue with my usb wireless card.
Im still having problems connecting via my LAN ethernet though. Says the same thing 'acquring network address' then after 20 secs it says limited or no connectivity. Can anyone help here? Thanks in advance!
