New Desktop will not join Home Network via wireless..

A bit annoying. Have a new Desktop in our network, that is showing connected to my wireless router with 4/5 bars, however, it does not detect my Homegroup, or a route to the internet.. The rest of the computers, are connected to the internet no problem incl through this same wireless router, this one however, can't connect, though it shows connected. Network gets identified as Public.. Any advice appreciated!!

Are there any noticable differences in the ipconfigs between the Desktop that has issue, and a machine that doesn't.
