You've helped me out in the past - hoping I can fix this annoying problem!
I'm running windows xp sp2. I have a Netgear modem router DG834G which I have
been using with a normal wired ethernet connection. I recently bought a Netgear
usb wireless adaptor so I can use the laptop in other rooms.
The first 2 days I connected, everything was fine, I accessed the internet, no problems
strong 'excellent' signal and no disconnections. Switched laptop off as usual and go to bed!
Next morning switch laptop on and I get the wireless icons flashing between green
excellent signal - you are connected - to red you are not connected acquiring network
address? It then goes to green again, and changes back every 5 seconds!
I'm new to wireless set up, but followed everything on the cd to the letter.
It worked fine for first 2 days.
I tried checking the IP address with the command prompt and Ipconfig and it tells me
the adaptor IP address is 0.0.0.0. Is this the problem?
Netgear haven't been much help so far, they just mentioned things I'd already tried,
such as switching off modem, computer etc.
I have norton security & firewall, but disabled it to check, and it made no difference.
Hope someone can help
Thanks in advance
