Windows 7: Connected to internet but cant browse

Seeing what you guys tried all so far, my money would be on the router blocking access for some reason. From your ipconfig snip I see the router connects you and gives you an ip as well as a DNS address. That means, locally the connection works. But somehow it seems that the router blocks you from connecting to the outside world.
Check the settings (especially if the amount of supported computers is set too low or if the router firewall has any limitation rules that concern/include your computer)

Hello there, your problem may be the fact that your TCP/IP stacks and Winsock configurations are somehow damaged.

To solve this, follow the next steps:

1) go to start, type "cmd" in the search bar (without quotes), right click it and "run as administrator".
2) type this: "ipconfig /release" (w/o quotes) and press enter.
3) now type: "ipconfig /flushdns" (w/o quotes) and press enter.
4) now: "ipconfig /renew" and press enter.

If that doesn't solve it, do the following

1) type on the CMD window: "netsh winsock reset catalog" and press enter.
2) after done, type: "netsh int ip reset reset.log" and press enter.

Reboot and check if everything works!

And of course, report back... please

Try Punksters suggestion first and see if that solves it.
To check "inside" the router you need to connect to the router control panel by typing
in the browser URL.
But if you have to ask, you haven't been in there to change anything. Is there anybody else who might have set up the router and probably mis-configured it in the process?

Somebody must have set up all those computers in the router. That person must have also set up security
(hopefully).
Obviously it wasn't you so I don't suggest you go ahead and click around there in the settings or chances are none of your computers connect to the internet after that What make and model is your router?
