Woops... My apologies, just looked back over your ipconfigs and there isn't a DHCP server enabled on that Wireless router. What is the make/model of it? You are going to need to change some configuration settings.

Also, Can you ensure that the Wireless interface is set to receive an IP address automatically. It should be already but just in case it isn't.

If it isn't then please change it to Automatically obtain one and then restart the machine and test connectivity.

Sorry for my mistake I'm trying to find out what is preventing you from being able to get a valid IP address,

Josh
