So Ive read through several threads trying to solve this problem, no matter where I go I cannot get an IP address, it connects and all but just continues to try to acquire with no luck. I have an Inspiron 6000 with an intel pentium 1.6, intel pro wireless 2200bg. Any help would be incredible. Thanks so much!

hi,
Welcome to TSG!

try this:

go to control panel>network connections, right-click on network connections and select
properties.

right-click on TCP/IP and click properties.

Make sure "obtain IP Address automatically" is checked.

Now try.
