    IGNORE IGNORE.... fixed it thanks anyway
    Hi there,
    I am having trouble connecting to the internet from my laptop via a D-Link wireless ADSL router.

    This is a new problem on a laptop that has been used on this wireless network many times - very strange?

    When i click "repair" it seems to hang at the point of acquiring my IP address.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Through the web browser on my desktop i changed some settings on the router i.e. the WPA, and it seemed to work? Magic :confused:
