"Limited or no connectivity" usually means you didn't actually get an IP address.

When you right-click the network it says you're connected to and choose Status, then look at the Details, what does it say is your IPv4 address?

169.254.xxx.xxx /16 (255.255.0.0) is the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) range.
That's the range used when a DHCP address is requested but no reply from a DHCP server is heard/seen.

Is there a DHCP server running on the network?
Is there some kind of Access Control List in force, such as filtering by MAC address?

Both of those are usually handled in the router.

What router do you have?

If you know the ip address of the router, then assign an ip address close to your router. suppose if your router ip is 192.168.1.1 then assign a static ip to your laptop like 192.168.1.2- 192.168.1.254 (any address) to the wireless or wired interface whatever you are connecting your laptop with the router.
If it works then access the router at that IP address using a web browser and manage your dhcp from there for future inconvenience.
