Re: Limited or no connectivity error!!---HELP!

It is up to your router to give you an IP address (DHCP handles this).
But the DHCP service must be enabled and your computer TCP/IP properties must be set to automatically acquire an address.
If DHCP is disabled and the other computers have dedicated (manually entered) IP addresses you are not going to get one served to you.

You did not mention what your Dell model is.
So, does your "new Dell" have an integrated network adapter?
If so, can you wire that direct to your router and get an IP address?
This may help determine if your wireless card is at fault.
