I can not get it past "aquiring address"

- XP SP3 all windows updates
- Router - newest firmware
- Updated To newest wireless driver
- "Repair" does not help.
- Works at other sites
- Only laptop with problems at this site
- Static IP is not an option
- Windows wireless settings, no other software installed

Try Uninstall the wireless device in Device Manager Do not let windows pick it up until you reboot

Take the wireless card out and clean the contacts and install it again.

I have see this help.

It may be your wireless card .

Do you have a wireless card in a different laptop you can take out and test in that one ?
Post back and let us know how it is going.

This is built in wireless.  Yes it works everywhere else just not this location.  I noticed someone else with the WAP510N and this laptop had an issue but there were no responses.
