My friend just moved to my place for the summer and brought his desktop computer.

It was connected without any problems to a wireless network at his old place. Now that he's brought it here he is able to find the network on his computer (Dlink) but cannot connect to it. He has tried using the correct WEP password, and the WEP PIN on the router. He also cant connect to it through an ethernet cable (we tried 3 different ones).

Have a PS3 and 2 other laptops and 2 iphones that do not have problems connecting.

We've rebooted, cold booted, restarted the modem / router. He looked inside his computer and didnt see anything out of place. He's currently making sure his cards are in place.

No idea what the problem is PLEASE HELP!! :D

Here's his ipconfig

Apparently we have solved his problem connecting through ethernet cable.

We downloaded a new driver for his motherboards ethernet controller, it uninstalled itself some how. -_-

However We're still curious as to why the wireless will not connect.

If he could connect back at his place, before shifting over to your place, then the problem obviously lies on your end? Have you checked your router settings? Could the DHCP be set up by your network admin to only give out enough IPs to your current devices?

It doesn't even get connected or is it connected but no access to internet?
