Cannot connect to DHCP Server

Hey-

I'm trying to connect a new Netgear Wireless-G USB 2.0 Adaptor WG111v3, and it won't connect to my Netgear router's DHCP server to obtain an IP address.

The computer I'm trying to connect is running Windows XP, and I've tried restarting the computer, uninstalling then reinstalling the program, right-clicking the tray icon and clicking 'repair', and using the command prompt program to release and renew the ipconfig. When I click 'repair' or ipconfig/renew, I can't obtain an IP address for the adaptor and I get the error saying something like, 'Cannot connect to DHCP server'.

Can anyone help? Thanks!

Can any other equipment recieve a DHCP address from this router?

if not, log into the router and verify that the DHCP server settings are correct. Also make sure there is not MAC filtering enabled that could be preventing your machine from recieving and address.

Yeah, the computer I'm using now got its IP from the server, along with my Wii and Nintendo DS I believe.

Do you have to log in with the router to get an IP on your school's network? You need to configure your router with all that login info if so. Connect your computer to your router with a cable and then connect to your router through Internet Explorer to the router's IP address (usually something like http://192.168.1.100 or http://192.168.1.2, manual should tell you). Then run through the connection configuration while connected through the cable.
