You're more than likely getting an APIPA address which is why it's showing as connected but it's limited. Have you tried to do a repair on the adapter as it looks like your router's DHCP is not distributing your IP's properly.

If after a repair / driver update you're still stuck then give it a fixed ip address in the range of your ip pool.
