    My home network is setup so I'm physically typing in the ip addresses for each computer, no DHCP. I have my HP notebook setup running on my wireless network. My gf's Gateway notebook connects to the router but can't access the internet or network. When it connects it says the connection is unsecured even though the router and notebook are setup to use WPA-PSK. In ipconfig, no ip addresses are showing up. So I can't figure how it's connecting but not registering ip's. When I hardwire it to the router and set obtain ip, the internet works just fine. Anyone experience this before?

    What wireless adapter does it have?
    Is it using Windows XP WZC or adapter's own client software (WCM) to manage the connection?
    Is driver and WCM up to date?

    When the authentication fails, I have seen WZC sometimes can report a connection to an AP when there isn't a valid network connection.

    It's got a Broadcom adapter, v3.1 using WZC. I tried installing a Broadcom wireless util and it said it wasn't associated. You know, I had this working and she took it to work and had someone config it to work in the office. Now I reinput all the ip's and it's not working. I've gone through all settings and can't find anything that would cause this not to work. My HP that does work is using the Broadcom util though.

    And it looks like I can type in any password and it still connects to the router but won't authenticate. Correct password or wrong password.
