The gentleman that kindly installed my family's U-Verse hardware finished a couple hours back, and I have since then been attempting to troubleshoot the known issue with Vista-laptops and wireless connectivity to a 2WIRExxx network.
I have tried the commonly referred "fix" listed at Microsoft relating to the computer being unable to obtain an IP address, which did not work (though I tried it, despite believing it inapplicable to my computer). I have attempted rebooting, connecting/disconnecting from teh network, and removing previously managed wireless connections. My wireless connection earlier today was flawless prior to this installation (using a Linksys modem and Cisco wireless router).
As of now, I am posting to this forums using an ethernet cable, so my wired connection is working on this computer (wireless and wired connections are working on other computers in the household running Windows XP, Windows 7, and whatever the latest Mac OS is these days). I've been consistently checking my ipconfig/all settings within CMD, and I have noticed a change in my Autoconfiguration IPv4 address, which is included in the below information. Previously, it was showing as 192.168.1.xx. I am careful to revert settings I've changed back to their previous state if the change doesn't seem to fix the problem, but it is possible I changed something and forgot to change it back (and I've tried a lot of things this evening). However, after rebooting the computer again and attempting to obtain a new IP, I am still stuck with a 169 IP address.
As far as hardware goes, I am running an HP dv5 notebook with Windows Vista Home (64-bit) as my OS. My wireless card's driver is up to date, and my service packs are up to date, as well. Below I have included my current settings as listed in ipconfig/all. If any of you can offer assistance, it would be sincerely and utterly appreciated. (*Note: Select All --> CTRL + C --> CTRL + P from CMD omits some of the information listed under my Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection)
