Recently I purchased an Vostro 1310 for my mother as her Inspiron 1100 was dying; I installed all the drivers everything was peachy but frustratingly enoguh I could not connect to our home modem -
I alleviated this issue by taking it off obtain ip address automatically.
Then I put the following data in
DNS preffered 10.0.0.138
I had to assign the laptop an IP as you can see and point it in the right direction which was to my modem. So all you need to do is find his modems default path and it should be sweet.
After I applied these changes it had no issues connecting - It might be a conflict of ip assigning on the network.
Before you rate get back to me if it didn't work - I want to help you solve this issue and get a Fix Ya! rating ;)

I have just had the exact same problem and i just fixed it.
You are best off downloading & installing the Intel Proset/Wireless software. This will fix your problem automatically. Once you do this you have the option of letting windows manage connections for you or just let the software do it. Your choice.
Make sure that you download it from the Dell site though as the drivers on the Intel site are only generic. Dell drivers and software are specific to your laptop and are directly setup for your laptop.
Here is the link for the software I got and i believe you need and let me know how you go mate. Iether click it or cut and paste it into your browser address bar.

The 169.254.x.x IP Address is known as an APIPA address:
In your situation, it is indicating that the system is not receiving an IP address assignment from the Router.
