Netgear Router DG834G

May 11, 2009 at 17:53:33
Specs: Windows XP
I have a PC with XP connected by cable to a wireless router Netgear DG834G, and have a laptop connected wireless to the router. This has all been working successfully for a year & has now stopped letting me access the internet from the laptop.
I have internet access from the PC.
The laptop can see the router, but is unable to connect - "Did not receive an IP address".
Any help greatly appreciated (not too technical).
Thanks

Check the wireless settings in the router and compare the used encryption.
Check also whether MAC-Address filter is enabled or not.

WPA2-PSK Security Encryption Network key in the router wireless settings is the same as that in the laptop.

The MAC Address filter is not enabled

Is the wireless card integrated or did you use a pcmcia wireless card, or wireless usb stick?

Check the Wireless connection in the network environment.
Sometime, suddenly it has changed from
Wireless Connection
to
Wireless Connection (2)

In this case Windows get in trouble and you may not be able to establish a connection to the wireless router.

Did you use the manufacturers driver or the Microsoft Wireless connection manager?
Under some circumstances, you must use the Microsoft Wireless Connection Manager to get it to work.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

So give it a try.
In worst case, it won't work too, but it might work.
I had such problems in the past with several brand new notebooks, with integrated wireless card.
