I have a Netgear ProSafe VPN Firewall SRXN3205 that has builtin WiFi.  I just bought a new Dell XPS that has a Killer Wireless-n/a/ac 1535 Wireless Network Adapter.  Other computers have no problem connecting to the Netgear and receiving internet, but I can't do it with the new one.  It connects to the Netgear, but no IP address information seems to come over.  When I do a ipconfig /all, this is what I get for the wireless adapter

Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi:

   Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

   Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 9C-B6-D0-BC-64-27
   DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
   Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes

Any ideas?
