google also shows many users having the same issue (stuck on "acquiring network address")
That is strange problem because the reviews at Newegg looked very good for this Netgear router with only a few saying they have connection problems.
It could be interference from a wireless phone which work on the same 2.4Ghz frequency, one guy said it worked much better with the router laying flat as opposed to vertical so maybe a different position will work better.
I know, it is a great router (for its price its excellent)
i have things to do now, ill try with the cordlessphone off within few hours, i dont think thats the cause, because if i turn off and on the laptop 2 (where the problem is) then it reconnect itselft without problem.
, even if i log out and in to windows then it reconnects itselft without problem.
anyway ill try different possition and with cordlessphone off and let you know
