Hello all,
I have a computer here that is having some trouble connecting to the Internet with both wireless and wired cards. When attempting to connect using the wireless 802.11g network card, it picks up on the wireless network, but when attempting to connect it fails to get an IP address. When I manually input an IP address for it to use, it does connect to the network but only gets a 1Mbps connection, with it flickering up 54Mbps for a split second before going back down to 1Mbps. I should state that other computers are able to connect to the wireless network without any problems.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the wireless card and this hasn't made a difference.

Also, I am able to connect to our wired network just fine.

Thanks for the help.

Hi There

Have you tried changing the wireless channel that router broadcasts on?

Nevermind, I must have been using an older/unusable driver...just updated it and it now appears to be working.
