I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop using Windows XP home edition, SP2. Internet comes from Comcast, with a Motorola Surfboard cable modem and a Dlink DI-524 wireless router. The router has the latest available firmware, (ver 3.2) with WPA-PSK security activated.
Last night, I got a new message: a pop-up balloon telling me Limited or No Connectivity. The laptop could not acquire an IP address. I got around it by manually assigning an IP address - however I prefer to have the system automatically acquire one. (The manual setting gets me by at home, but not at a local public hot spot.)
Is there a way to fix this problem? This happened suddenly for no apparent reason.
Thanks in advance for any help on this issue.
