I'm new 'round here but I already have some questions,,,

I actually use a wireless broadband connection,, the one w/c has antennae at the top of my house and the ISP provided me w/ a hub w/c has 3 ports,,

I had 2 Windows XP pcs connected to the hub and it worked fine. One of the pcs crashed and I connected a new pc,, I got Limited or No Connectivity on the LAN icon on the new pc but the old one is working fine,, I noticed that the IP address is 169,, so I powercycle the hub and the pcs, nothing happened, then I reseat the cables, still nothing, I run ipconfig /release then renew but it said cant renew ip, can not contact dhcp server,, from here I actually dont know what to do next,,, can you help me?

I also tried to force IP,, it said its connected but IE still can not load,, says page can not be displayed,,
