    I havent used my computer in a while since I've been out of town, got home and now it wont connect to our wireless network, it just says "attempting to establish connection." I'm sending packets, but not recieving any back. The IP setting on my computer is obviously wrong, it reads 0.0.0.0.0, but I can't figure out how to change it.

    Computer runs a 1.8 P4, its about 3 years old.
    Wireless card is a belkin
    Linksys Router.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Reset the router for the hell of it. When i have problems connecting to it i usually just unplug the power it and plug it back in. Try it and let us know.

    Could be lots of things - could be a fried wireless PCI card too. You could try reinstalling it - even to the point of uninstalling it, shut down, remove the card, power up, log in, shut down, reinstall card, power up, go thru the install process.

    It's all about process of elimination and doing the easiest steps first.
