On the network connections screen it shows wireless network not connected, firewalled but I had previously turned off both firewalls just in case...
I did an ip config from the cmd window and it shows the following
ethernet adapter wireless netowkr connection:
Connection specific DNS suffix: BLANK
Autoconfiguration IP address :XXX.XXX.252.196 (which is NOT what the stationary ID was when I first set up the network)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0 (also does not match)
Default Gateway: BLANK
Based on what I have been able to determine, it appears the computer isn't communicating with the router to get an ip assigned and after a few minutes is self assigning one to the computer (my guess only) because once I got it to tell me it was an invalid IP and then after a few min in that window an ip popped up.
It isn't giving me the window to even put the security key in to connect to the network. It just takes me back to the screen that I explained at the beginning.
I'm stumped as to how to get that computer back onto the network so any help appreciated.
