The problem you are having is that your desktop computer is unable to aquire an address from the DHCP server/router. You can see that the IP address you are getting is: 169.254.236.199, which is typical of a "Limited or no connectivity" problem. What you might want to consider is a few things.

Update the firmware of your router
Update the drivers for your network card
Try to set a "Static" address by putting in your own settings.
