Your IP address is the public ip address assigned by your ISP, and that is the problem.

The connection should be as follows:

PC(LAN) <--> Router(LAN)
Router(WAN/DSL/Cable) <--> Modem(LAN)
Modem(WAN/DSL/Cable) <--> Wall Plug(ISP)

If you have connected the devices as described, your PC will get assigned an ip address from the router and should be something like this:
192.168.1.100

So there is one major question:
If everythink is connected as described, how did you get an ip address directly from the ISP.
This is not possible, except, your PC has another connection, maybe via USB, directly to the modem.

Ok..press reset button at the back of router for 30s-1m when it's powered on, after that connect your desktop to wireless router this way temporary, after that have a look on this wireless router configuration article to reconfigure it. Hope this helps.

There appears to be a direct path from modem to pc which explains the ipconfig info.

Possibilities are as follows;

1. modem to pc connection
2. cable from modem plugged into router lan port not wan port
3. router set to bridge mode and just passing the ip thru like you were cabled direct to the modem

comp420
are you confirming that you are cabled as so?
modem<>router wan port[router]router lan port<>pc

Face it your router is fried. Simply replace the router and everthing will be fine. The router is simply acting as a pass through for your modem.
