I have a Dell Vostro 1510 which connects to my wireless network at home no problems. When im in work i get connected to our Netgear WAG102 ok but it nevers gives me an ip address, it just sits there saying acquiring network address and never gets one.

There are other laptops connceting ok with no problem.

I have googled this and found various stuff but none fixed the problem

I am running Windows XP SP3.
