    My Dell Dimension is no longer connecting to the internet via the wireless router. I have a dlink DI-524 and a dlink wireless USB key but it no longer connects. This just started today. When I try to repair the connection, it fails on "renewing IP".

    OS is Windows XP.

    PLEASE help.

    Thanks

    P.S. I have tried power cycling the modem/router but nothing works. Other computers can get on the internet via the wireless router fine.

    Can any other computer connect to the router?

    On the router turn off encryption and try to connect. If successful you can probably turn encryption back on and reconnect.

    It's really strange. I powered it on the next morning and it started working again.

    Thanks though
