The problem is right there, you aren't getting the default gateway from your router, in fact you aren't getting anything from your router at all, the 169 address is just the default for Windows when it's not getting anything. Usually it will show up as an Unidentified network when this happens.

This can be a problem with older routers that don't have recent firmware updates but it can also be something else causing the problem. You might try typing 192.168.1.1 into your IPv4 properties window into where it says "Default Gateway"

This link explains how to do this. > http://pocketpccentral.net/blog/2009...blem-resolved/



To access your routers set up page >
  1. Access the router (http://192.168.1.1
You should try updating to the most recent firmware for your router then run the ipconfig /all again.

Not Sure but at least we know the Problem Just got to find the Default Gateway Ohh and smurfyy it will be in a form of IP Address e.g 192.168.2.1

Just A Question can you reach your Routers Configuration Using your Browser?

Yes, but are they Windows 7 machines?

The network stack has changed considerably since the XP or Vista days, therefore in order for many newer Windows 7 machines to access the internet the router often requires a new firmware in order to work with Windows 7. Your particular router hasn't seen a firmware update for years. But there is another problem this can be but I havn't got to that one yet.

Also Could you check your Wireless Properties By Going to Start>Control Panel > Networking and Sharing Centre

After that could you click on the View Status by your Connection type and then click the Details Box

After that could you Upload us a ScreenShot


Also I am using my Vista Machine so the Steps maybe Slightly Different

Many Thanks,
Josh

The router is a bit outdated but may still work.

It would be helpful to know what settings this router is using like wireless B,G,N and the type of security used WPA2, WEP, and the encryption being used "AES or TKIP?.

Once you get this info you can set up a new connection in Windows 7. Go to the "Network and Sharing center" then to set up a new connection or Network and choose the Manually connect to a wireless network. After that, define the routers settings when you set up the connection.

You can also use the mixed settings but it usually works best to define the settings rather than using the mixed settings.
