    Ok i moved your posts to the correct section.

    Do you use Wifi or Ethernet ?
    Do you know which is your router gateway (eg : 192.168.1.1) ?

    Take a screenshot of your network setting (IPV4)

    Ok, you have a 169.xx.xx.xx address, so no internet connection.
    Are you connected with Ethernet cable or Wifi ?

    There's no connection between your router and the box.
    Have you entered the correct password when connection to wifi ?
    Does Windows said you are connected or not ?
