::I dont know how but I got Linksys to work,I do remember it was an
absolute nightmare to get connected,but somehow it did,most likely
accidentaly I just dont remember::
::then 2 weeks ago I was going away for 8/10 days so I unplugged
everything then 5 days ago(it seems so long ago) I got back connected
everything up,but no internet just -limited connectivity-::
::-this is with *wired* connection,-but of course my old computer
sitting in kitchen with wired connection as well again just switch on

Since the computer doesn't talk to the DHCP, I would check if there is a new
firmware for the router and a new driver for NIC. Also do you have any 3rd
party security software? Or check this search result.

Vista has 169.254.xx IPMy situation was that I was connecting ok then
suddenly Vista could not access the DHCP server in the router. Symptoms
Unidentilied network IP addres 169. ...

Ok there is the problem right there Autoconfig IPv
address:169.254.254.20
That is an apipa address meaning your not getting an address from you
wireless router because your computer can't find dhcp. Check the cables
try a different port
Also you shouldn't be getting an IPV6 address, turn that feature off.

You might be able to try setting a static ip like
192.168.1.20
255.255.255.
Default Gateway 192.168.1.

Other than that check your dhcp server on your wireless router and mak
sure dhcp is working and you don't have sticky mac protection on
