:tazz: Okay, so I had seen a topic that I thought could help with this yesterday but I can't find it again, so I'm really sorry but I need to fix this. I have an IBM ThinkPad laptop with Windows XP and a Linksys Wireless Network card. I have a wireless router at work and at home, both were working fine until recently. Now all of a sudden I have a IP address with a subnet mask (I'm sure you're all sick of seeing this, again I'm sorry) and I can't access the internet. I tried releasing or resetting the IP and neither worked (when I tried ipconfig /release it just showed me the same info as if I typed in ipconfig) and the release timed out, saying

"An error occured while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection 2: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request timed out."

So I tried unistalling and then reinstalling the card and software and I still don't have any luck! Any help that could be provided would be very much appreciated! Thanks! ;)
