Did you try setting it up per our forum sticky? Your post is pretty good but the details are missing such as WEP, hidden SSID or rebooting the machine.
There are known issues with laptop internal wifi cards but before we fix that we like to try it per the forum suggested setup.
I have a problem with the wireless network in my house. I recently started my laptop from hibernation and it said it was not connected to my wireless network (It was connected when I hibernated the laptop the night before). I reconnected using my secure network key and it now says it?s connected, but trying to obtain an IP address. I?ve tried the following remedies without success:
1. Power off and reset both the cable model and wireless router.
2. Remove the home network from the list of wireless networks on the laptop and have it reacquire and reconnect from scratch.
My laptop currently states that it is connected to my network and is obtaining an IP address, but won?t get past this point. Can anyone suggest something else to try?
The laptop is an HP Pavilion ZE2000, the wireless router is a NetGear Wireless G router model WGR614, v9.
