close. do an ipconfig /all

Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address .. : 169.254.106.252
means you did not connect with the wireless dhcp server.

If I were to guess you don't have the correct wireless encryption key.

Start > Help > Type in " Reinstall Internet Explorer " (without
the quotes)
You'll get 60 results - start with the first - Repair Internet
Explorer.
There doesn't seem to be a way, anymore, to reinstall just IE7
in Vista -
you'd have to reinstall the OS - but asking for it doubles the
Help hits.

It's probably an Add-on/Plug-in causing your grief. Start it with
Add on's
disabled and see what you come up with.
