You can start by running ipconfig /all from a command prompt & post it here. Try to ping google.com also.
netstat -an can't hurt either.
Disable windows & any other firewall that you might have.

It's getting an IP address, so the router & the NIC are working. Compare the DNS lines with the other machines. Do they point to the router the way that one does? If so, go to the next step below.


Look at the firewalls that I mentioned. Disable Windows firewall in the control panel. What about Norton, Zone Alarm, etc.....? Disable them too.

What error message are you getting?

Boot to safe mode with networking (F8) & see if you have internet then.
