Default Re: Invalid IP Error on laptop

This problem is now solved, It turned out that the laptop wasn't being allocated an IP address because of the 64 WEP encryption, a common fault apparently(not to me) anyway a Remtek engineer told me to change to 128 WEP encryption and it worked first time, so if any other person comes across this scenario then thats what you need to do.
