I have a desktop with a wireless PCI card (D-Link DWL-G250) and a wireless router to connect to (D-Link DI-624). Of late, I haven't been able to connect to it over wireless. Using an ethernet cable, I am able to connect to the internet via the cable modem connection that I have.
I have the ethernet connection configured to obtain an IP address and DNS server address automatically, and it works fine with that setting. I can surf webpages without problems.
For the wireless connection, when I do the same thing, (i.e. ask it obtain IP and DNS server address automatically), I get no internet connectivity. My card is able to detect the wireless network, though. I can also ping the router over wireless (i.e. after unplugging the ethernet cable) whose IP is 192.168.0.1. But when I go to 'View wireless networks', click on mine and say connect, the status indefinitely shows as 'Acquiring Network Address'.
What am I missing here?
