    I am trying to hook up a home network for my uncle and I'm having some trouble..

    Router is : Buffalo WHR-HP-G54
    Computer: Older HP w/ XP SP2 (connected to router w/ ethernet cable)
    Laptop : Newer Compaq w/ built in 802.11 b/g

    Now when i check my wireless network properties I see that i have a strong connection but it is displaying "acquiring network address" and I cannot connect to the internet.

    Any advice?

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

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

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

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reboot the machine.
