    I'm trying to connect my windows notebook to my wireless home network. At home I have a g5 iMac, netgear DG834GT and airport express (for music only).

    The notebook seems to be able to find and connect to the network, but fails to access the internet. I've turned the notebook's firewall off. The windows diagnostic tells me windows cannot "Renew my IP Address".

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Matt

    Simple

    OK, I had the same problem with my computer! What you do is, go to the start menu, and select RUN, then type in "winipconfig" A window will pop-up and there will be a few buttons in it. Click release all, and then click renew all. This should work!
