Wireless not working after installing SP2

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Travis Hauser, Apr 25, 2006.

  1. I recently put Windows XP Service Pack 2 on my laptop and since doing that,
    I haven't been able to connect using my wireless network. Windows shows
    that I am connected, but I am not able to grab an IP address.

    I reinstalled my drivers, tried running winsockxp fix for tcp/ip, ipconfig
    release/renew, and I am still not having any luck grabbing an IP address.
    Wireless was working fine before moving to SP2.

    I also tried power cycling my wireless access point. Other machines are
    able to connect to it without a problem.

    Is there something I'm missing? Any ideas?

    What if you disable the firewall? Are you able to connect then?

  3. Sorry. I forgot to mention that I did disable the firewall. My ethernet
    connection works fine. Wireless, however, is a different story.

    Make sure you installed SP2 all of the way and did not interrupt it otherwise
    it can mess up your computer!

    Just a thought i might post.

    I am having the EXACT same problem. I have two pc's. The first connects to
    my wireless with no problem. The 2nd, shows it is connected, but can't
    obtain an ip address. If i try to connect to a neighbors wireless, which is
    not secured, I can connect without a problem. This is getting very
    frustrating. If anyone can offer some advice it would be very appreciated!!
    I have tried everything suggested here.
