  1. So my problem is I bought new laptop Asus A55VM installed Windows7 Ultimate 64bit and all newest drivers, but I still cant connect to my wireless network. Laptop sees my network connects to it but its unable to connect to internet and says its unidentified.
    I have tried going to device manager and uninstalling, then scanning to re-install my wireless drivers but that didnt help either, also I dont have bonjour service I keep reading about thats causing problems, I checked for that.
    I did manage connect to network somehow, I dont even remember how but it involved entering PIN number if im correct from back of my wireless in some settings on laptop and it worked, but later I realised that now none of my other wireless devices can connect to network so I reinstalled my wireless to default setting and im without internet on laptop again.
    Im quite new with networking problems and im clueless now, so if you have any suggestions how to fix it please tell me what exactly to do.
    And heres ipconfig /all :

    The IP address of 169.254.244.220 that you have isn't valid - this is a Windows-allocated one when you don't have an IP.

    So, considering none of your other wifi devices can connect to the network, we need to work out how to turn on DHCP server. Do you have a router and modem? Or a modem/router device?
