I'm having a problem that I think is pretty common on this group, which is I can't connect to my wireless home network. I can connect fine via cable, but when I attempt to connect wirelessly, it can find the network, it just doesn't connect. I have been looking around at sites and forums for the answer to my problem, and I have noticed one thing. When I do the old Start>Run>cmd>ipconfig when attempting to connect wirelessly, my wireless adapter has an IP address of 169.254.xxx.xxx which I think is a bad thing, seeing as my Belkin router should only be assigning IPs in the range 192.168.2.2 - 192.168.2.50. Any suggestions?
BTW, security is configured properly, no firewall issues. My laptop (Dell 600m) is using the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG card and we're using a Belkin Wireless G Plus router.
Also strange, I just noticed as I did an ipconfig /all that the adapter that it is trying to use to connect is something called a Nortel Adapter? That's the one that is getting the 169.254.xxx.xxx address, and it says my Intel adapter isn't connected. I don't really know what that means, but I guess the more info the better.
