Acquiring Network Address problem - Wireless Net

  ejazbutt 12:44 19 Aug 2007

I have a laptop and desktop connected to my wireless Livebox. Laptop works fine and so did my desktop but since my desktop USB adapter was connected to a USB hub I always got a power timeout on the USB hub.

I am now trying to connect the USB adapter directly to the PC without the USB hub to avoid power problems. However although the pc connects to the wireless network it gets stuck on Acquiring Network Address or IP Address. What do I do? As it was connected successfully through the USB hub before??
Any ideas?

Have you pressed the button on the side of the Livebox to enable pairing?
