Windows XP Network - Connection Problems

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?WmltYnU=?=, Jan 3, 2005.

  1. I am having problems connecting a wireless desktop PC to my home network. I
    have 2 desktops, 1 ethernet wired to the router (Motorola) and the other is
    wireless. The wireless one, shows connection, but remains with a status of
    "Acquiring Network Address". No IP address gets assigned to the wireless
    desktop (it remains 0.0.0.0), and therefore it can not access anything on the
    LAN. I have it setup to Obtain IP address automatically. I have also gone
    through all the network setups several times. Network Authentication is
    setup as WPA-PSK and data encryption is setup as TKIP, but everytime I
    connect it gets changed to AES. The network key I have checked several times
    to validate it is correct. Signal strength is excellent.
    The other desktop connects to the router with no issues. However, no other
    computer on the LAN can see this wireless desktop.

    I need help desprately, please let me know something !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Will it connect if you disable WPA on both?
