So I am having trouble connecting my laptop to a router again.

To refresh I am trying to connect a laptop with windows 7 and Intel® WiFi Link 1000BGN to a D-Link Wireless N 300 Router(DIR-615). The router seemingly works fine as I can connect my desktop (wired) and my ps3 (wireless). It seemingly can't acquire the right ip wireless as it pulls a 169.254.X.X adress, however when plugged in it can.

I have reset my wireless settings on the router and turned off auto detect settings in internet options to name a few things. I am tempted to say that it needs a new wifi NIC but I would like to run through any other suggestions before hand.

So any suggestions are welcome !

Plug it in wired and download the latest drivers for the wireless card. Uninstall it from Device manager and uninstall any programs from Add/Remove programs. Reboot and install the new drivers. See if that fixes it.

Does it work if you assign the IP statically?

Cavedweller2 - tried your first suggestion and it didn't fix the problem.

Cryptodan - I have done static ip and still didn't fix anything.

This is an on-board wireless card?

What does Win7 say if you diagnose the problem?

Are you using WLAN Config or the software that comes bundled with most wireless cards?

What IPs did you put when you did the static IP? there were 3: IP address, Subnet mask and default gateway.

What security is on for the wireless?

yes it is on-board

Troubleshooting can't identify the problem.

Using the software that came with the laptop.

192.168.145.145.105(within the range i established), 255.255.255.0, 192.168.145.1

I'm assuming you are talking about the router so I have zero security right now just to get the laptop to work.
