If your computer has a 169.x.x.x IP address, that means:
* Your network connection is set for dynamically assigned IP adress.
* For soem reason you are not connecting to the upstream end to get an IP address.
* Your computer can't get an IP address, so defaults to 169.x.x.x.
This is likely a simple wired networking problem. Take you computer to his house and try to get a wired connection first.
