can't connect wifi at home, but can connect everywhere else

I'm running SuSE9.3 and WinXP Pro.
I can connect at school through suse and windows
i can connect at my girlfriend's house through suse and windows
at home, i can only connect through windows

i thought it was because of my encryption, so i removed the key.
no luck.

i thought that kwifimanager might have been able to help me.
it shows a strong signal, but no connection

i have the Intel2200b/g card (Dell 700m)

also, on kwifimanager it shows my ssid, mac address, signal strength, but no IP address.
and through kinternet, i just CAN'T connect. it keeps giving me back a "failed" message when i select my router and press "connect"

Don't worry, i got it to work, i had to uninstall/reinstall my wireless card.
