Windows 7: Wireless Network shows "Limited Access"

Wireless Network shows "Limited Access"

Hello,
I have a Dell Vostro 1720 with Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN. Yesterday, my wireless network at home stopped working. In Wireless Network Connections, it says "Limited access". I'm not sending or receiving any packets, but my wireless connection is strong. When I troubleshoot the problem, it says that there might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter. I updated the driver and there are no caution signs in the device manager. I made sure I didn't have an AVG connection under Networking Properties as suggested elsewhere. I even tried manually configuring the IPv4 properties. I'm not sure what else to try at this point. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

ipconfig results

Here is what ipconfig is saying. I also forgot to mention that I ran an Intel PROSet Wireless Diagnostic and everything passed except the Ping Test. Don't know if that helps...

Limited access message

I get the 'limited access' when checking the status of my connection. I followed the advice of Dwarf by using
IP/all and attach the findings. Can anyone explain it to me please ?
