Hi!

I'm trying to connect on a wifi access point with a Lenovo T61 laptop on XP Pro and I can't get an IP.

Windows says me that "connectivity limited or no connectivity".

I went in command line to try a ipconfig /release and then renew, doesn't work. I have an error message telling me that DHCP server can't answer.

I've tried to connect to this AP with a identical laptop and it works. I've also tried a ipconfig /release and then renew, all worked fine, like all other computers connected to this laptop.

I've downloaded and installed the lastest drivers, no help.

I've uninstalled all software that manages wifi connections to let Windows XP manage wireless connections.

Do I forgot something to try?
