I have a dell dimension 8200. I bought a Linksys wireless PC adapter, which is installed in my computer and working fine.
I am trying to access my roommate's wiresless network. She has a G4 Mac laptop and her wireless network allows more than one user. When I go into Network Connections, I see her wireless network and am able to connect to it. Once it is connected, it then reads: "Limited or no connectivity."
When I click on the "Limited or no connectivity" link it takes me to the "Wireless Network Connection 2 Status." This tells me the problem is occuring because the network did not assign a network address to the computer.
When I click on "Repair" it tells me that "Windows is taking the following action: Renewing your IP address." Then the screen says "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address. For assistance, contact the person who manages your network."
Can anyone give me some assistance, please?
