    well - I'm a relative newbie at this stuff and trid to search posts and folow fixes but to no avai. I have a basic home network system with cable ISP. The router is a Dl-615 and its hard connected to my desktop. Everything works fine on the desktop BUT the laptop suddenly will not connect wirelessly.

    When I tyr to "repair" the wireless network connection on the laptop it returns:

    "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed - Renewing your IP address" Then it says that I have to contact the person who manages my network - Unfortuanetly that's me! And I'm not at all good at this tuff.

    Any guidnace would be very welcome.
