Windows 7: Intel Wifi Link 5100 Wireless issue with Win7 install

When your router/modem failes to obtain IP from your ISP's DHCP it will give that weird IP (Automatic Private IP Addressing), at the stage you can only double and tripple check your router wireless setup is correct. Otherwise, ring up your ISP and ask if there are any known DHCP issue as you are unable to obtain IP thru autodetect. If there is nothing wrong with them (usually they say so), i would think about resetting the router and re-configure your wireless network.

I'm not sure how you setup your router's settings, but usually don't go overboard with secuirty, just WPA2-Personal is enough imo.

Give it a go. Reset your router and re-configure your wireless network.

Thanks aem. Followed your steps and it works fine now. I am unsure whether it was the reset or changing from WPA to WPA2 or both but it works and I would thank you very much for your replies.

Here is the solution that worked from aem's guidance.

________


1. Reset router and apply settings again. (**Remember to write down any user names and passwords used for your ISP**)

2. Use WPA2-PSK security rather than WPA

3. Connect to network using network password.
