Default DHCP returning wrong IP

Router SpeedStream 6520 (WPA PSK/TKIP)
Router's IP and Gateway
With DHCP enabled, Wireless picks up a gateway and a Dynamic IP
Did Flush DNS, ipconfig /release and renew, same thing
Did Safe Mode with networking, same thing
Even did a reboot to factory setting on the router, same thing
Run "NetStumbler" only my SSID is reported

Any suggestions would be very appreciated

Thank you

If that is what you are getting, then I would suspect you are not connecting to the correct router. Try changing the SSID, and connecting again. If you are STILL getting that wierd issue, try connecting it directly to the router. If at that point you are STILL getting strange DHCP addresses, then try to update the router's firmware. If after THAT it continues, time to RMA the router if you can, or get a new one.
