Hi,

I am new here and I have a question about trying to get an IP address from a public wireless network. I am trying to connect to the wireless network here and I get good signal, but it says, that my access has "Limited Connectivity". I then tried to see why my laptop could not access the system and ran "ipconfig/all" in the command prompt. I pasted the results below. I don't know a ton about computers and was hoping that someone might have some insight about why my computer will not get a correct IP address (it sends back that the IP address is 169.254.44.160 as opposed to a 10.xxx.xxx.x that the network should be passing out). Any help would be greatly appreciated! (Just as an additional note, I am able to connect to other wireless networks without a problem)

You are not getting a dhcp provide ip address on the wireless.

This is usually a result of not putting in the correct wireless encryption level and passphrase for wireless access.
