Wireless Network Problem

  Binoboy 22:00 24 Dec 2005

Have just bought a new computer and there is a problem with the wireless network that has been installed. I have tried to 'repair' it but Windows (XP) tells me that it cannot be repaired properly as there is a problem with the IP address. The signal is also pretty low - is there any way I can solve these problems?

about your wireless network setup - are you using a wireless router, and if so, which one?

Is the computer a PC or a laptop?

Did you set the router up yourself?

The router was set up myself and has worked with a previous computer. It is a wireless router, Belkin ADSL Modem.

as if your new computer is not being assigned an IP address by the router.

You should check the TCP/IP settings and make sure that the option to 'obtain an IP address automatically" is ticked.

I have just check that and it seems that it was trying to obtain an IP address automatically. The signal is roughly about 50%...does anyone have any other suggestions?
