My desktop is conected to my home network but cant access the internet?

Yesterday my desktop was working fine and could conect to the internet no problem, today it will connect to the network but has no internet access. My laptop and phone both connect and have internet just fine. I have reset my router and modem and that didnt help. I changed it so my Ip addess and DNS where not automatic and that did nothing. Currently it is set back to automatic and it is giving me no default gateway and the IPv4 Address is not what it should be. Like i said earlier, i have no idea what could have caused this as it just happened when i turned on my pc this morning.
 
Here is my Ipconfig /all from my desktop (the ipconfig /all for my laptop is below)

well just for thorough ness i went ahead and shut down my desktop then reset my router and modem for i think what was the 4th or 5th time and now my desktop can miraculously connect to the internet again, still wondering why my ipconfig on my desktop was showing some weird stuff though in the first place. any insight into why this might have happened would be great.

this may or may not work but next time you should try, forget network connection in windows, and then retype the network name and password.

ip address starting with 169 is a self assigned ip address that doesn't connect to the network.

currently im not using a wired connection on my desktop as it wouldnt be possible without a 20+ food ethernet cord or drilling a hole in the wall, and i dont think my land lord would like me doing the second. my wireless card in my pc is a quallcomm PCI-E card that came with my motherboard and is less than a year old, so i would hope its not going bad yet. my internet is working now, but unfortunately i am having problems with my connection freezing periodically, this usually lasts 5-15 seconds then its back to normal for a few minutes.

A firewall can do things like that. Make sure you only have one running. For instance if you are using a Norten firewall turn off the native Microsoft one. You can also turn them off for a short time to trouble shoot problems. Switch companies and try different ones if you need to. It may not be the problem but then again a firewall controls internet access and can shut it down completely.

Rather than messing with the router you should assume that the problem is with the computer that is not connecting. Always trouble shoot the one that doesn't work first.

Sometimes the adapters get messed up ( a very technical term that most people understand ) Next time the first thing you should do is go into the device manager and uninstall the adapter and then restart the computer. Windows will then find the hardware as new, install the proper drivers and set up the network connections. This will OFTEN (but not always) fix the problem.

Sometimes the adapters go bad. If it continues to be a problem, like more than once a week or even once a month you should get a replacement network card. For a while on board NIC's were not very reliable and many went bad. Now they are better but can still fail. Voltage surges over the network cables will burn them out. It is nice when one just quits instead of doing the intermittent thing. NIC cards are relatively cheap and easy to install.
