try downloading the wireless card driver from Dell. If you have the Dell driver CD for Win XP you should load all of the drivers.

You could delete the wireless card in the "hardware" window and then have Windows search for new hardware. This might kick Windows in the rear and get TCP/IP to talk with the wireless card.

you could also type "ipconfig /renew" in the "run" window of START
i did that ...even contacted my service provider to see what the problem was ....they said i may need an ip address and I don't understand anything...but i deleted the LAN card once before and reinstalled it...but still the same thing .....i'm sure all of my drivers are installed properly...
