Hello, I am in a friend's house and I've tried to connect with his wireless network. I've two computers. The W7Pro computer with SP1 can connect without problems. The WXP (SP3) can also connect to the network but can't connect to Internet. I can't ping the DHCP Server from my WXP computer. I've disabled my firewall but the problem continues.
My IP configuration is:

Open a command prompt and run
netsh int ip reset c:\resetTCPlog.txt

Close the command window, reboot and try your wireless connection again.

If it still won't connect to the Internet, open a command prompt and run
netsh winsock reset

Close the command window, reboot and try connecting to the Internet again.

THe DNS server IP address looks a bit strange given the IP address.  
Perhaps the DNS server is manually entered?

Can you ping IP addresses on the internet?

I would like to see
ipconfig /all
from the Win7 machine, and also what that command returns now on the XP machine.

Thanks to all but the solution was very simple. I've reset the router and all is OK.

The solution was to reset the router but some posts have helped to me to realize it. When I've executed the commands on Win 7 machine I've lost my connection also in this machine. This fact have shown to me that the problem might be in the router.
