"Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address"

I'm able to connect to a wireless network from a laptop machine just fine and the same is true for the iPhone but I can no longer connect using the desktop machine. Is it possible to trace communication between machine and wireless router?

You could try the event logs to check if those give detailed information, or you could try to do the failed action yourself, just start a 'command prompt' as an administrator and execute ipconfig /renew.
