You need to get rid of the auto config ip address that starts with 169.x.x.x.

Check these tips out:

To enter the registry, open a command prompt and type regedit or enter regedit in Run:.

Don't change to many things at once in the registry and back it up, if you can before making changes.

Problem solved: I have re-installed a different version of the drivers, and it worked immediately.

Probably an obscure compatibilty issue between the drivers and some component of the PC

vdi_nenna,
thanks for the links.
Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters I have three Interface subkeys, only one is fully configured. Can I remove the other two?
So Automatic Private IP Addressing is unnecessary?

Stone age WiFi NICs and drivers on a modern router configured for speed is very hit and miss.

Nice job getting it connected.
Using WPA or did you get WPA2 working?
WPA isnt very secure, but as long as you dont have lots of sensitive and critical information on your network or the kid next door is a script kiddie ... who cares.

Im guessing your initial problem was caused by old drivers with no WPA2 support or awareness. It accepts the encryption key and thinks its connected. But its just a bug. There is no support for WPA2 in WindowsXP by default. A patch exists, but its not a part of any service pack or automatic update.


How did your laptop die?

WPA2 works. It has the last service pack, and I did all the available updates

It was bent, apparently causing a solder spike on the main board to pierce an insulation sheet
