Wireless network connection - Cannot acquire network address.

  1. Hello,

    I am trying to connect to my home wireless network and my computer has found the network and will let me connect (after typing in the WEP key), but the status says 'Acquiring network address' and I can't access the internet.

    I have the IP address for the network, but don't know how to add this into my computer.

    Can someone point me in the right direction please?

    if it hangs or shows limited connectivity ensure you are typing in the correct key, some routers will allow a passphrase for wep others want the key in hexadecimal format.
