I recently re-installed XP home on my old laptop and everything seemed to install ok but now I cannot connect to my internet wirelessly.In my system tray it shows that my network name and conection rate as excellent but it will not actually connect. When I do "ipconfig /all" I find my IP address to be 0.0.0.0. I also get a funny looking address for my DNS servers of "fec0:0:0:ffff::1%1" and then "2%1" and "3%1". I reinstalled my dell drivers from the drivers disc that came with the computer and I did have slow connectivity via wired hookup. I have tried "ping ip_address_of_the_router" and it I got "Ping request could not find host ip_address_of_the_router. Please check the name and try again.". I have a working interent connection on my other laptop (wireless) and through my desktop (wired). I don't know if this is a driver issue or what but I just can't seem to get it figured out. THe status of my wirelss connetion on the problem computer is just aquiring network address. But it never connects. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm afraid I'm in over my head on this one.
