D-link DWL-G650+ wireless network card receiving packets problem

I just bought a D-link wireless network card PCMCIA for my notebook couple weeks ago. I did try to peer to peer with my friend notebook, the problem came out with no receiving status. The wireless connetion icon showed that only got sending status. Same problem occur when i try to connect to my wireless router or share internet connection with my friend using peer to peer(wireless connection)  But sometimes the problem doesn't occur, i was wondering why? is that a hardware problem or software? Any expert please help me out with this!

Usually this occurs when your PC is not recieving an IP address from the device it is attempting to associate with. You need to look at the device you are associating with and ensure that your Wireless IP address is valid.
For example if the device you are associating with has an IP adress of 192.168.1.1 and your Wireless iIP adress is 169.blah.blah.blah then Windows has not recieved an IP address so it has chosen one at random from its black bag of mischief.

Both of the pc are using DHCP enabled. But when i looked at the IP address of my pc, it doesn't match the ip address of my friends pc. Do you have any idea how to refresh the DHCP server? so that it can assigned the correct Ip address. Thanks

There should only ever be ONE DHCP Server in a network so you need to enable it on one PC only. (Both machines can have DHCP Client  service enabled).
Your friends IP should be something like 192.168.0.5 and yours should be 192.168.0.6
ie the first three segments of number should be the same and only the last number should be different. Both machines can NOT have the same IP address.
