Question Wireless connection

Hi all,

I'm having a problem with my wireless network. It shows a connection available but the connection doesn't work. I've tried:

IPCONFIG : It's not receiving DHCP; even though, it is enabled.

Pinging Gateway : Unsuccessful even when I manually configured the network connection.

WEP is active : I've checked & rechecked the keys

Hardware : Uninstalled & reinstalled. I've tried a different network card. Same brand name and same results.

The products are a D-Link router & wireless network cards on all XP systems (none have been updated to SP2). I have protected my network with WEP and it's open authentication. All keys have been entered correctly. DHCP is enabled.

Any thoughts would be appreciated

do you have acls enabled on your router? do you know there's a implicit deny any at the end?

No ACL's. It once was limited to certin MAC addresses but in the mist of these problems, I disabled that feature.
