Posted 11 September 2010 - 08:02 PM

So I kept getting a "limited access" internet connection with a yellow triangle that would intermittently allow internet connection and cut out sporadically. I ended up directly wiring it to the router which is how I am connected now. The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate. I have tried resetting the router, restarting the laptop, and manually assigning an IP address, but nothing has stuck and kept the connection steady.. The laptop will connect to other wireless routers most times, I have only had it have this same issue one time on my school's network. There is also another laptop that is connected to my home's router without any issues, but it runs on XP SP3. My home router is a Belkin 54g and this is the one I need it to connect to. I will post the cmd ipconfig/all window in bold after this Windows diagnoses report. Thank you for your time and help.

Before you connected with the wire you had a 169.x.x.x ip address. You receive a 169 address when you aren't able to connect to a DHCP server to get a valid IP address. If you want to run wireless, try going to your command prompt and typing ipconfig /release. (notice the space between ipconfig and /release.) After that type ipconfig /renew. That should get you a valid IP and allow you to connect to the internet. Hope it helps.
