Those IPs don't look like the sort of IPs we normally see. Anyway you could manually change the IP setting from your wireless adapter tcp/ipv4 to, by going to Control Panel, Network and Sharing, click Change adapter Setting from left side of screen, right-click on Wireless Network connnection, Properties, hightlight TCP/IPv4 and click Properties. There you enter your ip of choice. It looks like the subnet might be, the gateway is your router's IP.

If all that feels wrong to you, go into a command window and type these

C:\>ipconfig /release
C:\>ipconfig /renew
C:\>ipconig /flushdns.

Can't guaranteee it will work but try it for now.

I installed Win7 on two computers this week here at home. They are both connected to the same NAT router (which connects me to my DSL connection), so this is a VERY conventional setup. IPconfig shows, that both systems have an IPv4 as well as IPv6 running, both consequently also have two...
