    Mr Juice ,

    Yeah it looks like your WiFi router is not, acknowleding your Adapter with IP address. A good trouble shooting command is

    ipconfig in the cmd prompt, (Usuually you will see starting with 192.168.x.x... or something or 172) but if you see 169.x.x.x, then tell me. I can say you have a problem

    ipconfig/release and then ipconfig/renew see if this helps.

    Thanks
