My laptop (Acer Aspire One running on Windows XP) isn't connecting properly to the router we have (2WIRE, At&T UVerse DSL). When I try to connect, it gets stuck on "Acquiring network address".
ipconfig displayed my IP as
0.0.0.0 and the DHCP server's as
255.255.255.255 (which is incorrect). The laptop can connect to other wireless networks, and the network works for other wireless devices.
I tried rebooting both, changing the SSID,
ipconfig /renew, setting a static IP, ... nothing worked, not even to connect me to the rest of the network.
