I have been using wireless connectivity for quite some time now. I have a Linksys router, and a linksys instant wireless PC Card that plugs into my laptop, which runs XP. Yesterday, it started the wireless connection as usual, but is stuck at "acquiring network address". I have repaired, rebooted, and everything else I could think of, but it is still stuck at this point. The other computers in the household are accessing fine, and the laptop works fine when "plugged in". It will simply not find the IP address when attempting to connect wirelessly. Any ideas on what is going wrong?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
