Windows 7: no internet connection

windows 7
no internet connection

My new pc with Windows 7 will not connect to the internet. With my new Essential6 wifi.
It connects to the router. I have another laptop which is directly wired and I tried my pc with that wire and it connected no problem. I have tried the usual disconnecting the router but to no avail. I have been told that windows 7 has its own inbuilt security but not being a computer buff I do not know.

Welcome to SF,

Were you trying to connect your new PC via wired and not wireless?

Please provide an ipconfig /all output for review:
Click on Start => type cmd press enter (run as Admin). From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results here.
