The DHCP is enabled. I checked it under ipconfig/all in the command prompt. Please what else could be wrong with it

I'm using netgar and everything is working fine because the internet is working fine on another laptop but not on the IBM thinkpad

IP looks strange, not something a router will give out. and what about the wired connection, do you use it?

If you are trying to renew the IP on the wireless, just go to "My Network Places" right-click, and go to properties. Select the wireless connection icon, right-click and select disable. after its disabled, right-click again and select enable.
