EDIT: actually what you might want to do is connect your PC directly to your cable or DSL modem. If you get a connection then its a problem with the router, if you still can't connect its more likely a problem on the PC.

OK, open an elevated cmd windows, start > all programs > accessories > right click "command prompt" and select run as administrator. Then run ipconfig /release, followed by ipconfig /renew. Then to see what you got run ipconfig /all. ipconfig /? will list all the options. If you don't know what to look for clip and past what you get back here and I'll have a look at it. If you're not getting an IP address from the router I'd probably reset it to defaults and try connecting again.

OK, so your wired and wireless connections don't work? You should probably power cycle your modem after switching the connection to your PC. Sometimes they need a little nudge to recognize a new device.

What does ipconfig /all show for an ip address etc? It's starting to sound like a DNS error. might want to flush DNS > How to flush DNS cache in Windows XP / Vista / 7

That looks OK, there is nothing listed there that I would personally worry about posting. Is that a wireless connection to your router? Did you try the flush DNS?

You might want to try turning your firewall off as a test, especially if its not the built in windows firewall.
