    Appologies if this was covered before. Ok I have 2 Laptops and both could connect wirelessly to the interenet however I tried to connect the 2 laptops to each other via ad hoc this didn't work for what ever reason , any way when I tried to connect to the internet with my sony viao it would not connect to the internet. It sees the wireless network however it keeps showing up aqquiring ip address but will not connect I tried connecting using a wire again this will not work. The other laptop has no issue connecting. Any help much appreciated , but please keep it basic.

    thanks

    Hi!

    Go to Control panel>network connections. How many connections are listed? Right click and disable all of them. Then right click the wireless and select enable. If it can't find the address, try right click>repair.

    If that doesn't get the wireless going, disable it again, then go to Start>Run... type in ipconfig /release and press enter (there is a space before the forward slash "/"). Repeat the procedure with the ipconfig /renew command. Enable the wireless.

    Oh, and make sure the wireless adapter is turned on. :D:D

    Any luck so far?

    EDIT: Also, sometimes simply restarting windows will make such issues go away. :)

    Let's see this for the non-working machine with a wired connection to the router.


    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    Remove ipv6 ...

    Start - Run - ipv6 uninstall - OK

    After doing the following repairs please try to connect both wired and wireless and show another ipconfig /all.

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    In neither of your posts is there any hint of an ethernet connection.

    Does your ethernet adapter show as OK in Device Manager under Network Adapters? If so, does your ethernet connection show in Network Connections, and is it enabled?

    Do the ethernet LEDs on router and PC light when you connect the cable?
