I have a laptop that is no longer connecting to the internet. It is finding the wireless router and says it is connected but disabled, and no matter how I try to enable it is won't connect. I then ran a hard line to it and that is not showing up either. (I tried the hard line with another computer and it worked fine.) It is running XP Pro SP3. I ran ipconfig and got some weird info. I don't know how to fix this... ipconfig shows:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix
IP Address.......10.0.0.41
Subnet Mask......255.255.255.0
Default Gateway..10.0.0.1

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix
IP Address.......10.0.0.3
Subnet Mask......255.255.255.0
Default Gateway..10.0.0.1

When I tried to run ipconfig/renew, it said "An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

I have other computers at the office running on the wireless network so I know that the router is on and working. Please help.
