  1. Have you tried connecting the computer to the router by ethernet cable to see if the problem goes away ? Could it be the wireless adapter.

    Have you tried turning off wireless security in the router temporarily to see if it's just a security issue.
  2. yes.i can connect by using an ethernet cable with my winxp but when i try to use the wireless connection of the laptop it stays like "acquiring network address" stuck there
  3. Then it's a wireless driver or wireless security or wireless reception issue.

    When you reinstalled WinXP did you obtain the latest drivers for the wireless adapter.
  4. yes.i do have them. so i need to re set up my wireless net?

    If you've not installed the wireless network adapter's drivers you need to do so.
    If you have already, my guess is you need to supply the router's wireless security password. If the wireless adapter software came with its own connection interface I'd suggest using that instead of Windows' own.
  6. dell laptop(winxp) can now connect but my other still trying to install all the drivers. i tried to copy the network setting.and it still shows only aqcuiring network etc.. thx for ur help :)
  7. I think I would have a look at the literature which came with the router and see how to disable wireless security temporarily, then try to connect again.

    If no joy, look at the wireless mode and check that it matches that of your adapter -- maybe mixed mode is a safe choice.

    Look for a router feature like Access List which limits access to users with listed MAC ID -- disable that.
