First I logged into my router's settings. I'm going to assume you have a linksys like me because I don't know how different other routers are as far as playing with settings but it shouldn't be all that different either way. Open a web browser and point it to 192.168.1.1 and it should bring up a prompt for username an password if you have this feature enabled on the router. After you're in go over to Status and then into Local Network. Then click on the DHCP Clients table button. This will show you all users connected to the network. Now when I got in here I noticed something strange... There were multiple IPs for my machine on the network causing a denial of service (DOS). So what I did was delete all of them with my host name and reconnected to reset the table's perception of my machine. I think the cause for this was my laptop going into hibernate after the allotted time... I guess it doesn't tell the router that it's going to sleep and therefore when it wakes up it reconnects under a different IP.
Let me know if that works... Good luck!

If you're having trouble logging into your router here is a list of default username/password combinations for just about any router out there...

The pc works fine. The laptop does not. It cannot obtain an ip address from the dhcp server. The monitor software shows that it can see the network (signal strength & quality are 100%).
I tried pinging 192.168.1.1 from the laptop but it could not reach it.
I checked the dhcp client table in the router and it was empty. The wired-PC appeared in the ARP/RARP table as 188.8.131.52.
I notice the linksys monitor software for the adaptor shows the ip address to be totally wrong, it's nowhere near what the router should be assigning.
Not sure what to do now!
