Wireless Unable to get an IP Address or Internet Conection
Posted on 2009-07-09
I have a Dell Vostro 1400 and can not retrieve an ip address via wireless connection. This started happening yesterday, until then it was working fine. I have two wireless computers and the other is working fine. I have a Belkin N1 and all blue lights are on.
Here's the situation, I am able to connect to the wireless router just fine and I have a strong signal, however no ip and no internet access.
Can't ipcong/release because it says it's already been released and no operation can be performed while disconnected.
/renew says an error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection 2: unable to contact your DHCP server.. request has timed out.
I've tried the Winsock fix with no luck either.
I have all firewalls and internet virus programs disabled too.
I've triend using Window's wireless connection with no luck either. And both windows and Dell have the wireless icon below with the yellow fot endlessly searching. Dell has a feature that has a "Site Monitor" which endlessly searches through all channels unable to connect.
I ran Malwarebytes and came back clean.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless drivers.
Could it be a hardware issue?
