It looks as though your subnet mask is incorrect along with the autoconfigured IPv4 address:

Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . :   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :

Typically, it's of the format "192.168.1.###" with the subnet mask being, and most home configurations do not have multiple subnets for obvious reasons. I would attempt to configure a static IP of perhaps something mid-range like "" and set the subnet mask along with all other fields then try again to see if it's resolved.

That Autoconfiguration belongs to APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing)which used only if a DHCP server is not available, or if no static IP was configured. And is a very strange private IP address.
