The 169.xxx.xxx.xxx indicates, as you know, you connection has failed. Did you ever have a connection, and if yes did you modify your computer? Do you have the wireless feature on your modem\router turned on. The default setting is "OFF". If you have "reset" your device it will default back to "OFF". Did you add a router to you modem and them you lost connection?
Could you describe you LAN? Computer and OS? Type of router hub and\or modem? How many computers\devices are on the LAN?
