    okay, i was having a problem with my surfing, using wifi, so i decide to reset the ip address using ipconfig in dos. once i did that, it wouldn't renew. at this point, my lan and my wifi would not connect. it would eventually time out and give the message limited connectivity. i disabled the wifi and was able to renew the lan connection but not the wifi, then i disable the lan and was able to renew the wifi, but not the lan. so right now, i have the lan working, but not the wifi. when i try to renew the wifi, it just hangs until it times out. so, how can i get both to work at the same time again?

    not sure the issue. do you have two NICs? posting the the result of ipconfig /all here may help.

    okay, i am using win xp sp2 and am having a problem with being able to connect to wi-fi and lan. I used to be able to use my wifi, then disconnect and plug into a lan network and be fine. now, i can only use one or the other at a time. in order to swith them, i have to go in to dos and do ipconfig/release and then renew. So, only the wifi or only the lan will work at one time. has anyone else had this problem? shouldn't i be able to renew both connections at the same time? i tried system restore, but that did not correct the problem. any suggestions?
