    I changed a settintg to "access point" and the local area connection connected, but I still cannot connect to the internet, or any drives on any other computer.

    Step 2 of trouble shooting will be to try to ping the router. Let's discuss that after step 1--how about an ipconfig /all ?

    Can you save the results to a Notepad file and get it to another PC via removable media?

    The PC and router are not communicating. That is shown by the fact that Windows has assigned an APIPA of 169.254.x.y because no Dhcp server was found.

    I figure from your previous ipconfig of the working PC that your router's Dhcp server is enabled. Make sure that you are not using MAC address filtering. Disable encryption until you get a successful connection.

    By now you probably have some kind of profile for your network saved in the wireless utility. To start fresh, delete it.

    Now connect to your network. If successful you will get ipconfig /all results similar to the good one you showed earlier. Then enable encryption again on the router and try the wireless connection again.
