I have been getting a "limited or no connectivity" message when I connect to my NETGEAR wireless router. I can get the internet to work if I have the network cord plugged into the computer, but it will not work with wireless. Other computers will connect to the same router just fine using wireless. I do not have a problem connecting to and using other wireless networks. I have tried some of the suggestions with releasing and renewing ipconfig and they have not worked. I have also reset the router multiple times. Please help.

Here is what it says for ipconfig:

connection specific dns suffix:
autoconfiguration IP address: 169.254.108.121
subnet mask: 255.255.0.0
default gateway:

Hi rexy2007,
Let's go through a couple of things to eliminate possibilities of fault. I'm assuming this is a laptop,correct me if I'm wrong. Does your unit have a button or switch somewhere that enables you toggle your wireless on and off? Look to see if the wireless icon is next to any switch or button, if so, change the position to the ON state. Also, have you verified your wireless network device is working in device manager?
