Acer aspire one ZG5 running XP Home with a strange network problem.
It works fine in the office, works fine at mine but refuses to connect properly at my friends.
All 3 networks use WPA encryption, everyones phone will connect at my friends as does a Sony Win 7 laptop and my Advent netbook running XP Home – but only after I manually set the IP Address.
On the problem Acer netbook it says acquiring network address, briefly flashes up Connected then goes back to acquiring network address and eventually Limited or no connectivity.
The wifi code has been checked and doubled checked many times – it is definitely being entered correctly.
I have changed the wifi channel from 11 to 6 with no difference.
