WOW, that is one EXPENSIVE dumb string controller.  There are less expensive controllers out there.  Unless you have already purchased that controller, there are IMHO, better methods but that is the subject of another thread.  The fact that you are not getting an IP address on the wireless indicates that the wireless is not connecting to the wlan.  You need to make sure that your configuration is set up correctly to allow the pi to make the connection. Make sure that the SSID and password (shared key) are correct in the pi config and that your wireless router and wireless dongle are compatible (on the same frequency).

Without knowing what your ssid and password are let me just repeat that there have been problems that other users have experienced if they had special characters in the ssid or pw.  It is a pi thing.

and the wireless router should be using WPA for easy connect. Others have reported problems with WEP or WPA2. (earlier in this thread)
