I have a D-link DAP-1353 n2, I can connect to it fine, but I am not given an IP address. If I assign myself a static IP I can browse the network without any problems. Some other laptops are able to connect and get an IP without any problems.

It seems to be about 50/50 of users that can and can't connect and there is no obvious connection between them. What can I check that might help?

  • So statics work but DHCP doesn't? or is it more intermittant? Have you checked that your scope is big enough? rebooted it?

What OS are you using? Maybe the driver is too old for your Laptop WLAN Card/Stick.

Maybe you can try in the command shell:

ipconfig /renew

Checked for Known Issues on D-Link homepage?

  • I'm using vista, some other users are on XP and one is using the HTC Hero phone.

I turns out the the router had a date set of something in 1970, I set the date correctly and pointed it at a time server and it now serves the IP addresses as it should.
