Hey guys I'm currently having a problem connecting to the internet using my Dell E1505 laptop. I am using Comcast cable internet with a Linksys G-booster 2.4Ghz wireless router. They thing is that I was able to get on the internet with no problems for about a month since I've gotten it. Now it wont connect at all with or without a line hooked up to my laptop. Weird thing is that the laptop is about to detect the wireless signal but is unable to fully connect, nor am I able to browse anywhere. Also It says that my IP address is invalid w/ as my IP. I ran the repair button but it is unable to renew my IP. When i run the ipconfig /all this is what shows up:

Windows IP configuration

Host name: my-pi28k0glshls
Primary DNS Suffix:
Node Type: unknown
IP Routing Enabled: no
WINS Proxy Enabled: no

Ethernet adapter wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS suffix . :
Description: Dell Wireless 1500 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card
Physical Address:00-19-7d-12-e7-01
Dhcp Enabled: yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled: yes
IP address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
DHCP Server:

If anyone can help me I will be forever grateful! Thanks!!

My brother is using an older Dell Laptop with a B Wireless card and his is working fine
