ip address not being found upon boot up
When my laptop goes into stand by mode it does not pick up an IP address. I
have to reboot. I think there is a conflict between windows amanging my
wireless connections and Intel proset. I have tried going into dos and typed
ipconfig/renew and it an error appears saying it can't renew it. If I try
release it says it has already een released.
How can I ensure the IP address is always picked up? Interestingly, keep a
physical address not IP is just zeros. I am very close to my wireless router.

Have you tried static addresses for Gateway (route to
outside world) and DNS server, which translates name
to IP addresses?
For XP Start -> Connect To, select wireless connection
righr click and select Properties
Find TCP/IP configuration and select use the following,
then put in the appropriate dotted quads.
Often the address of your router for both
eg 10.0.0.138 and Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
