Hi, I have been searching for an answer to my problem but nothing on the internet seems to help here goes...

I was trying to connect to the internet on my HP Tablet, I dont know how to find out the specs on it but if you tell me I can find them. It has Wndows XP on it, the tablet addition. I was trying to connect to the internet but after it connected it said limited or no connectivity. I clicked the repair button in the properties window and it tried to renew my IP adress, I had at the same time been downloading camera software from a disk to my computer and it promted me to shut down before could use it. The IP adress renewal was taking a very long time so I canceled it to restart my computer thinking I could do the same thing once it was restarted and have my camera software to playwith while I was waiting. Instead it said that no wireless networks were found in range, which is silly because my other laptop is connected to the wireless network just fine.

I tried to renew my IP adress by going to run, and typing in 'cmd' to get the box with the black background, I typed 'ipconfig' and it gave me:

Windows IP configuration

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Welcome to Geeks2Go!

Try altering the wireless channel to a different number (preferrably higher) with your router's configuration utility in your web-browser.
