"Acquiring Network Address" message

Why has my PC ( wired connection) started to delay the connection to the internet and give the message "Acquiring Network Address". The PC and router have not been changed, so don't understand why I'm now getting this delay and message. The connection is made in the end.

Also my netbook ( wireless connection ) gives the message "The connection has limited or no connectivity......." and I have to go through a "Repair" process to get it to connect. Have to do this " Repair" every time I connect the netbook.

Have you tried resetting your BT Home hub?

Try the instructions here Static IP with Home Hub  It will then have its own address, and not have to ask the home hub.
