Details are: Trying to connect an ASUS eeePC 1000HD/XP to ASUS RT-N16 Wireless N router
SSID: Settings are correct in both router and eeePC
Security Level WPA2-Personal
WPA Encryption AES
DHCP server is enabled
Physical Address of eeePC : 00-15-AF-E7-D2-29
IP Address 169.254.21.169 (PIPA????)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
Here's what I tried so far
--tried LAN Ethernet connection, and successfully connected to the internet @ 192.168.1.5 Assigned by DHCP
--tried reinstalling ASUS LAN Driver: no change
--tried ipconfig/release and ipconfig renew and got: "An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out."
--tried installing Windows Updater: no updates (except Internet Explorer 8) available
--tried "power cycling," i.e., turning all computers off, unplugging modem & router, and then one by one turning on connections. NO CHANGE
--cannot simply "repair" the connection
It may be significant, that the computer was recently "wiped clean" and had the OS reinstalled (it is not my computer, and I don't know the details of the install). It had previously been "infected," so they took it to "some guy."
There is another issue, which I think is unrelated, but I'll throw it up in case it means anything to anyone:
First the EeePC Tray Utility and then the Asus ACPI Service pop-up with warnings.
The former says "Intel igfxext.exe not running: Disable Dispaly Switch hot key;" the latter says "Display switch hot hey is void"
--So for this I tried reinstalling the current ASUS drivers for ACPI and no change--error msgs still present
Thanks for any light you can help me shed on this problem!
