Hello and welcome to TSF!

You may try these:

Remove all wireless profiles stored in your computer and re-connect to your home wireless network, make sure that you have the correct encryption needed if your wireless is secured.
Here's a guide=> Click on Start select Control Panel. Select the Network and Internet option and then click the Network and Sharing Center. In the tasks on the left click Manage Wireless Networks. Click your network name in the list, then right-click and select Remove Network. This will clear out the profile. Then go back to the Network and Sharing Center and click Connect to a network and reconnect to your network.

If it's unsuccessful, uninstall then reinstall your Wireless Ethernet Adapter from Device Manager. Have your Driver CD ready.

Please post update.

Is your wireless connection intermittent? Is this the only wireless computer that's having an issue from your network?

If this is the only one that's having issue, formatted the computer, re-installed the Driver, there might be the issue on the wireless device.

Let's do another thing here. We'll change auto IP to Static, if this fixed the issue then we'll leave it on Static. You need to know the IP, Subnet and DNS that you will have to type in manually. Use these:

IPv4 Address. . . . .192.168.0.107
Subnet Mask . . . . 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . .192.168.0.1
DNS....................192.168.0.1

If that DNS didn't work you may try these PublicDNS's

Preferred ......8.8.8.8
Secondary.....8.8.4.4

Here's a complete guide:
1.Click Start followed by Control Panel
2.Click Network Connections
3.Locate the device you want to configure
4.Right-click it and select Properties
5.Under the this connection uses the following items: window, scroll to the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)] entry and click on the Properties button.
6.Select the radio button next to use the following IP address and enter the IP address, subnet mask and default gateway of your choosing (use the information extracted above as a reference)
7.Select the radio button next to use the following DNS server addresses and enter the DNS server IP addresses from the information extracted above.

grump,

if you look at his ipconfig again, you'll notice DHCP is NOT enable. So, if anything he probably have IP conflict and changing to another IP fixed the issue. My theory at least.
