I just reset my wifi password and now cannot connect to the Internet. I have already turned everything on and off and restarted computer. Connection status says limited or no connectivity and that this problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer.... Help!! I am not very computer literate and have tried to trouble shoot without success:(

If you've changed the wireless key you need to reset the wireless key configuration for the network on your computer, otherwise it's going to keep trying to use a key that doesn't work.

Under XP you can delete the old network under "Change The Order Of Wireless Networks" link when you are looking at the list of detected networks.
For Vista and 7 you can use the "Manage Wireless Network" options in the Network and Sharing Center.
