Does it actually get an IP address from DHCP?

I had an issue with a laptop a while back wherein it did get proper TCP/IP settings from DHCP but still showed the same error message.

I would suggest you open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command:

ipconfig /all

Post the output of the ipconfig command in a response so we can have a look. For instructions on the quick/easy way to copy/paste from a command prompt window click on my name above in my response and read my "how-to" guide titled, "Post the output of ipconfig (version 2)"

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Dear Mr. Curt,

I´ll go to try your suggestion, but for while i think i have found the "X" of the problem. I use o symantec endpoint protection and it has three protection technologies (antivirus and antispyware protection, proactive threat protection and network threat protection) and occasionally occurred one error and i saw that the network threat protection was causing this problem with the message "Acquiring Network Address". When i disabled this option my wifi was ok ... but i wish to return this option on symantec in next future, because my wifi before was working good with this enabled.

a hug,
