|I have a Latitude D810. recently unable to get connection on wireless or wired. Lights are on on port plug. I can see the network, when I run troubleshooter on the Proset/Wireless Wifi Connection utility It says the wireless adaptor failed to get IP address and could be due to authentication failure with the network, incorrect wireless security passwords or because of DHCP server malfunction. I did the passwords, checked the router, all is ok there. My new computer works fine on this wireless network as well as my wired desktop. I suspect this happened as a result of a security change that windows XP or whatever security soft ware that's in there did, but cannot figure out how to undo or reset this. Just prior to this happening, I kept getting a page hijack about every 20 minutes or so, maybe a virus I don't know.|
I had to have a laptop for school, so I bought a new one, but would like to fix this issue on the old one. Also being connected would help alot with transferring old files to new computer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
