Can you help me troubleshoot my Windows XP internet connection, the problem has something to do with the wireless network?

My wireless network appears to not be connecting to Windows XP, I have rebooted my router and still can not connect.

go to My network places property and delete the connection, then click the create new connection link then a wizard will appear then do the step by step procedure and now reboot the system. if the problem continues then check the hardware connection whether it is working properly or not.

Go to start, run, type "cmd" From the DOS window that appears type "ipconfig". If the IP address listed starts with a 169. x. x. x you are getting an APIPA (automatic personal ip address). You router is not giving your computer a valid DCHP address.

If you are using a laptop make sure the wireless network card is turned on. If you are using a USB network card try re-seating it.

Is the network card working fine (device manager)? Can you connect to another wireless network with your computer? Check the wireless network settings on both devices (ssid, decryption,... )

Try rebooting your router. If that doesn't work then I suggest running Windows Help with the wireless connection off. You may need to update your drivers.

There maybe a problem with your wireless router or the wireless card in the computer, you should check to see if the wireless card is in working order.
