Hi,

I have a Dell LatitudeD520 running Windows XP SP3. For the past year I have been connecting to the network via a D-Link wireless router (DIR-825) with no problems. I went away for a few months this summer and when I got back I have not been able to connect at all! The network is detected with a strong signal, but the computer is unable to "acquire a network address" so all I get is the "limited or no connectivity" message. There are four other computers connecting to the same wireless router with no problems. ipconfig shows an IP address of 169.254.60.67 and a blank default gateway. I've tried flushdns, release/renew, power cycle, even upgrading from SP2 to SP3 - all to no avail, with the exact same error message every time. HELP PLEASE!

Solved! Found and installed an update for my network adapter and the computer now connects properly :)
