My Laptop wont connect to my companies wireless internet?
it says limited or not connectivity

I have done the following:

Checked IP ADDRESS: 169.254.136.143 - APIPA Address
Checked to make sure there is no static IP address and that it obtains the IP Address normally
Tried Releasing / renew the IP address - didnt work
now it Says cant connect to DHCP server

Not sure where to go from here? Can anyone help?

Most likely this is caused because you aren't fully connected to the wireless either your encryption is wrong or the authentication settings are wrong. If you fully connect you should get dhcp if they are issuing it.

are you sure there is a DHCP server? consult your IT department, they will have the details - noone can just connect to mine either :)

there is a DHCP Server.There are about 5 others that are using the same Wireless Access, but only 1 person is having this issue. He has the right information (name and password) for use of the wireless.

potentially a software firewall in place that is blocking DHCP then

What OS are you using?  (grumbling at EE's templates for not encouraging the disclosure of that info with every question.)
