if you have a 169.254.x.x IP address, that means you are not getting a valid ip address from the router.
169.254.x.x is a special type of IP address, this is an IP address generating by windows itself if your not getting any ip address from the router.

Try doing these steps:

click start > type CMD on start search and press enter > on the black screen window type
ipconfig /release . wait for a reply. After doing it's thing. Proceed to the next line and
start typing ipconfig /renew, after a while it will display a new ipv4 address. you should get other
ipv4 address other than 169, if not we are gonna proceed with another troubleshooting.

there are a lot of things to consider here for troubleshooting. If you have an ethernet cable, try connecting the computer using a wired connection first. For us to isolate the problem. If your computer connects using ethernet the we can isolate the problems and solutions.
