Hello I have a macbook running OS 10.9.4 and I am having the hardest time connecting this system to a Verizon fios router I connect to the network type in the wep key and Alert no internet .....The status is on and it says the wifi has a self assigned 169.254.66.102 and will not be able to connect to the internet .... I have it set to DHCP .... not sure what I am doing wrong....Any suggestions?

I just notice when I plug in the cable the IP address is 192.168.1.5 ... I wondering should I just use a static address

That sometimes means the signal is too weak. Do you have the same problem if you move the Mac closer to the router?

It's right beside the router with a network cable plugged in
