There are various possibilities. If you could have connected the
computer directly to the router, it would have eliminated some.
However, before you try that (and I understand your reluctance to do so)...

Does the "acquiring IP address" ever stop? Open a command prompt window
on the problem computer and type "ipconfig /all > C:\ipresults.txt"
(without quotes) and press enter. In Notepad, open the file
C:\ipresults.txt and copy/paste the contents in your next post (you can
delete the file after you're done).

You can also try re-setting TCP/IP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357/

Hi
Try this to make sure that the Wireless is installed and configured
correctly.

If every thing checks well and it does not work proceed with this process.

In general.
