Wireless problem!

Hi,
I have a thinkpad t430 and my wireless used to work fine until like 3 days ago. At first, my wifi would go from "identifying..." to "no internet access" in a loop. But now it either doesn't connect or it connects but has no internet access. Can you guys please guide me. I have seen a similar thread which directed the person to set to a static ip and I tried it, but I don't think it worked.
I have tried reinstalling the driver already and it is not a modem/router problem.

Here is an ipconfig.

What router?

Can other devices still connect to the router wirelessly? Will your Thinkpad connect with no problem using a cable?

The only difference is your Node Type, your is Peer-Peer and mine is Broadcast, but it is maybe the way your network is configure.

I tried powering off the modem/router and turning it back on :(  It didn't work. Is there anything else I can do?

The Default Gateway is not the same between the Ethernet and the wireless, maybe this is your problem.

Go to the configuration of the modem at the address http://192.168.1.1 and look for the wireless.

Also, my windows network diagnostics says
Wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP and that there is a problem with wireless adapter or access point
