This problem has been right from the start when I got my D-Link router. It's the latest model, with 802.11 G Turbo, and WPA2 encryption. What basically happens is my laptop connects to the network, but then it sits there saying that it can't get a DHCP-assigned IP address. Usually, the problem resolves itself in a few minutes. Today was especially bad. I couldn't get internet at all, so I had to hook up my laptop with hard-wired ethernet.
That's the other point. All my other computers are on hard-wired ethernet, and they have no problems getting an IP address. It's only my wireless DHCP. I have no idea what is going wrong.
Here are my router settings:
Wireless Radio: ON
Super G Mode: Super G with dynamic turbo
Extended Range Mode: Off
802.11 G only mode: Off
SSID broadcast: Off
Cipher Type: AES
My wireless bars show full 95% of the time, and when I ping another computer on the network, I get a response. I just can't access the internet when I have a "self-assigned IP address". Even when I do get an IP address, sometimes I lose it after an hour or so.
This is so annoying......
Here is how my network status looks all the time:
