I have a brand new Dell inspiron laptop that I am just trying to connect to Wi-fi through a Linksys wireless router. All hardwired clients work just fine and my iphone connects to the wi-fi just fine. The problem is that the new laptop can not get an IP address throuch the dhcp server function on the router. I don't want to give it a static IP because then you'd have to change that everytime you wanted to connect to other wifi networks. This laptop is running vista business and it also has that dell control point software (which I hate). I'd love to do away with that too if possible. I already tried changing the registry keys here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928233
and no luck. (My computer only had the one registry key available though.) Any thoughts?
