Anyways I own a SONY VAIO VGN-FS920.
Recently got hooked up with DSL. Bought a modem and wireless router both netgear not sure what type of model.
Everything works fine. Main computer connects to the internet perfectly. My sister owns a laptop(DELL running on WINDOWS VISTA) that could connect wirelessly. The problem is that my laptop is not connecting. I mean it picks up the connection and everything but it just keeps doing this: "ACQUIRING NETWORK ADDRESS" it goes off and on. At one point it even said disconnected and the icon on my tray h had the computer with the yellow ball going back and forth.
My ip address is: 0.0.0.0
subnetmask is: 0.0.0.0
oh and which is my mac address? is it the one under ethernet wireless network connection or local area connection?
any suggestions? ohh and i went to the whole trouble of turning off my firewall and everything and it still did the same problem.
