    That 169. IP address you're getting on your wireless interface means your computer isn't getting an IP address from the DHCP server in your wireless router. Can you confirm your wireless interface is ok in your device manager? You get to Device Manager by clicking on your start icon, right-clicking on Computer, left-clicking on Properties, then in the window that opens find Device Manager at the top of the list at the left and click on it. Find the network adapters section in the list of the window that opens and click on the little arrow to the left of it to open that section. According to your ipconfig you have both a wired and a wireless adapter so you should see both of them in there.

    If Windows thinks it's working fine it will be listed without an exclamation point or anything beside it. If there is something beside it then try reinstalling the drivers manually. If it looks normal then you can try uninstalling it then rebooting the computer so it will redetect it and automatically reinstall the existing drivers. To uninstall it, right-click on the Intel wireless adapter then left-click on the Uninstall choice in the menu.

    Try this and post what you find.

    Remove your existing wireless profile and create new. But before that ensure your ip address is 192.xxx.xxx and not

    169.xxx.xxx

    Happens when tcp/ip gets stale this is a definate fix



    Do this on order

    1. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
      (Vista users will have to right click "Command Prompt" and run it as administrator)
    2. A black box will appear. Type in: ipconfig /release
    3. After it is done releasing. Type in: ipconfig /renew
    4. This should renew your connection with your gateway.
    5. Flush DNS in Microsoft Windows
    6. In Microsoft Windows, you can use the command ipconfig /flushdns to flush the DNS resolver cache


    this refreshes your networking


    dont forget to restart pc when you done to save these changes
