Renewing IP Address w/ Wireless?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014

I am currently using an airport extreme base station to provide a wireless connection to my powerbook.

Sometimes when I wake my computer from sleep, it seems to take quite long to pull an IP and connect to the Internet.

Is there a way to almost signal for an IP address? I've seen it take upward to 1+ minutes sometimes... Is it due to the ISP or is it due to something else? Any tricks or help? It eventually always gets a connection, but isn't there a way to speed this up?
