Limited or no Connectivity

I have a BT router which I connect to wirelessly from my pc and 2 laptops. I can get online with the laptops but not with the pc.

I use a usb dongle to connect to the router and I'm getting a "limited or no connectivity" warning in my taskbar.

I have run ipconfig/all and the autoconfiguration IP is: 169.254.26.48

i then did ipconfig/release and then renew. However the problem is that although i'm connected, i get the message that no operation can be performed on LAN while it has its media disconnected. unable to contact your dhcp server.

Any help would be appreciated

Distance and walls between PC and router are the problem most likely. But you could try changing the Router Wireless Channel
