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.

More about wireless problem
  1. What router?

    Can other devices still connect to the router wirelessly? Will your Thinkpad connect with no problem using a cable?
  2. I'm not sure what router ut is but it's the one from verizon. Yes other devices can connect to my router fine. my thinkpad wont connect without a cable but it works with the cable.
  3. bump
  4. 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.
  5. should I try to do an ipconfig with wireless only? now my internet only has "limited access"
  6. ok you were connected with the cable, that is why you were Peer-Peer.
  7. double post edit
  8. This is when I didn't have the cable

  9. On another site they said to reset your modem/router and it help sometimes.
  10. I tried powering off the modem/router and turning it back on :( It didn't work. Is there anything else I can do?
  11. The Default Gateway is not the same between the Ethernet and the wireless, maybe this is your problem.

    how would I fix that?
  13. Go to the configuration of the modem at the address http://192.168.1.1 and look for the wireless.
  14. I can't seem to find the default gateway
  15. 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
