    My OS is ME and i cant get my wireless card to acquire valid ip form my router WRT54G. Thats why i just assign a static IP under the routers lan ip segment I assign 192.168.1.5... on the wireless card. default gateway 192.168.1.1 and even assign the DNS i get from status page of the router and apply. But when I do WINIPCFG on my dos prompt to check the IP address I asign. It never save the manual keying I done. My wireless card doesnt appear there.... onl PPP adapter... PPP adapter VPN not my wireless card adapter... I check my device manager...And my device is working properly...I try to unistall and install it again but same...It doesnt appear when i do WINPCONFIG....
    Thanks ....

    ME?

    I think the main problem is that you're using Windows ME, possibly the worst operating system ever released ;)

    That said, are you rebooting between setting the static IP and checking it in ipconfig? Windows 9x/Me requires a reboot to change its IP (Because of laziness on the part of microsoft developers).
