Just started...
Did this before I reformatted it... Still does it... Only connects to WLAN and I have to go into CMD and do ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew before the internet will work.
What's going on??

Is it connected via a router? If so, check if DHCP is enabled. The DHCP should automatically give out IP addresses.
Yes, it's connected via router.
DHCP is enabled.
Moms laptop works just fine.
Just mine has problems.

try getting new drivers for the cards and also i noticed with some vista desktops you need to disable the wlan to get wired to work
Got it working by setting up a static IP.
Still wondering why it doesn't work with DHCP on my laptop but works fine on my laptop.
Thinking a IP conflict somewhere though...
