wireless connection

I have a Linksys wag54gs wireless router and a linksys wireless-g pci adaptor, i had no problems connecting wirelessly until i had to change the nic to another pci slot, now i only get  an IP address and a subnet mask, there's no DNS or WINS or Default gateway.When looking at the wireless connection status it says the porblem occured because the network didn't assign a network address to the computer.I can however connect to the internet via harewire so i'm assuming there's an issue with the wireless nic.  is there something i've missed to configure the wireless network correctly?


RE: wireless connection

Check the Wireless Drivers correctly installed or not.  No need to configure anything, because IP address and remaining parameters will resolved from your Wireless Router, if it connect.  Or else check your Router Configuration either DHCP Enable or not. Still having problem please give brief about your problem.
