Hi there

I have a D-Link wireless newtork with three PCs and a laptop connect. The PCs work fine but while the laptop connects to the network I can't access the Internet. I have 64 bit WEP encryption enabled. I've raised the connection chanel to 13.

Earlier advice suggested releasing the IP adress as follows :

Press Start menu --> click on "run"
--> type cmd
--> type ipconfig /release
--> type ipconfig /renew
and then check if you now have the right ip address
--> type ipconfig /all
You should be getting a 192.168.x.x IP address


However, when I run the /renew command I get the following error :

"Windows IP Configuration

An error occurred while renewing the interface Wireless Network Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Requested has timed out."

Any advice and assistance as to what the problem is would be greatly appreciated.

Regards.

Craig.

My guess is that it can't "see" or connect to your router.
Can you confirm this by pinging your router.
Press Start menu --> click on "run"
--> type cmd
--> ping 192.168.0.1
I'm pretty sure that 192.168.0.1 is the IP address of your router, if not then just change it to the right one
The result should look something like this

Reply from 192.168.0.1: bytes=xx time<xms TTL=xxx
Reply from 192.168.0.1: bytes=xx time<xms TTL=xxx
Reply from 192.168.0.1: bytes=xx time<xms TTL=xxx

(x = some number)


Can you also tell us which Dlink router you have?

EDIT:
You can also try rebooting your router, unplug the router for a few minutes and then plug it back in.
If that does not work, you can try reseting your router, set it up again and then try the above (rebooting router).

u have to follow all this instruction to set up your dhcp

Select Start > Settings > Network Connections.

Double-click the Local Area Connection icon to open the Local Area Connection Status window.

Click the Properties button to open the Local Area Connection Properties window.

In the upper portion of the Local Area Connection Properties window, confirm that there is a card name in the greyed out text box under the label "Connect using"--if there is not one listed, please see your Network Administrator.
