Wireless - not aquiring IP address

I have set up a router which works fine LAN but am having problems when trying wireless. If I ask the laptop (dell & XP) to obtain the address automatically it just constantly tries to obtain one. I have checked the router set up and can't figure out what the problem is. Any suggestions. The laptop works fine wireless on a friends network which makes me think it is something to do with the router set up.

You would do better to post in the networking forum, However more info is required if members are to help you

what equipment do you have router/modem wireless adapters? and how have you set this up.

Your network needs to be first in the list of connectable networks. Has your router had encryption key put in as your laptop will need the same key.

Do not setup encryption until you get a connection. First in Router under wireless copy the SSID and any passwords etc these have to go into Laptop WiFi software. There should be a icon in the system tray for this
