    Do you have a wireless connection on this computer?

    No, I just direct connect through an external firewall before it goes into the cable modem.

    Maybe it's doing this because it is the first time I connected to the internet after installing ZAIS Suite 7.1.248?

    Because right after I connected the computer to the external FW, it said the network found 169.254.0.0 as a network then in a few seconds later it assigned me my real IP address.

    OK, that makes sense. For some reason when a NIC cant get a lease from a DHCP server for an IP address. But after it does that it will continue to try to get an IP address. For some reason your DHCP was slow. Could have been a fluke, or it could have been busy. It could happen again if you turn off the computer and turn it back on. As long as it only happens a few times after reconnecting, its no big deal. If it continues to happen more and more, then you need to find out what is causing the delay.
