I've looked through everything you have here, and while some seem slightly close, nothing really hits the nail on the head, so to speak. I own 2 Dell computers, each with an XP OS. They are hooked up to the internet through A TrueMobile 1184 Wireless Router. Up until recently, both computers, the host and the other, had had no problems connecting to the internet. Now, the not-host is no longer connecting, even though all indications in the system point that the router is working fine.
I did some research into the system, comparing it with the still working host, and I found that it does not have a Gateway IP. Also, when I tried to renew the Network connection, I got this message.
An error occured while renewing the interface wireless network connection. Unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.
What should I do? Neither comcast nor the router's extensive help section did anything to solve the problem.

A few things to try.
A:flush the DNS, START>RUN>(Type) ipconfig/ flushdns
that will ensure that you have an empty DNS cache.
B:Same as above but type in ipconfig/renew you can pretty much guess what this one does.
C:In Xp try the network repair option. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.
