      Thought i'd throw that into the mix.

      Might be worth if possible to take a screenshot of the LAN page while logged into the router.
      i took it that no ip is assigned from the 0.0.0. in the ipconfig test. that doesnt mean that the conclusion is right :-)

      dhcp is "on" in the router settings.
      ip range (if im not mistaken in interpreting all this confusing data) is 2-254
      again not sure what "LAN page" is referring to but information on lan is this

      LAN Port
      MAC Address F0:7D:68:18:E5:64
      IP Address 192.168.0.1
      DHCP On
      IP Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

      and

      LAN IP SETUP
      LAN TCP/IP Setup
      IP Address 19216801
      IP Subnet Mask: 255.255 .255 .0
      Use Router as DHCP Server
      Starting IP Address: 19216802
      Ending IP Address: 1921680254

      thanks again to everyone put their ideas forward.
      anything else i could try?

      oh just one more thing i remembered. just a while ago the laptop wouldnt connect to any network (after i messed with the settings to solve the current problems) i had to delete the list of preferred networks. after that it worked just fine again.

      Your driver is out of date.
      Here's the latest one. Download it and update via Device manager.

      Hopefully this should resolve it.
