Windows 7: Wifi Works, Ethernet doesn't (even with wifi disabled)

Wifi Works, Ethernet doesn't (even with wifi disabled)

Hi! After moving to a new home, I'm having trouble getting a wired connection working. Same modem and router as the previous home, same PC. Different ISP, but both are Shaw cable re-packagers.

CISCO Linksys E900, Factory Reset, with latest firmware 1.0.06

SAPPHIRE Pure Black P67 Hydra
USB adapter
USB wifi, Dlink DWA-160
Operating system
Windows 7 64
Ethernet Adapter
Marvell Yukon 88E8057 Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
latest driver version

I have only a PC and an android connected, occasionally and android tablet as well.

The PC can connect via wifi, if ethernet is disabled and then modem, router, PC restarted, but I can't seem to figure out a way to get the ethernet connection to work. I've tried DHCP and Static IP configurations, and I've tried connecting the ethernet directly to the modem instead of the router, but to no avail. I believe I've managed at times to access the router from the PC (only with static IP), but never the internet as well. I've tried 3 cat 5 cables as well.

Here are some pictures with more details of my config

I've been banging my head against this for 8+ hours...can anyone see what I'm missing?

To disable IPv6 would I just need to uncheck the checkbox for IPv6 in the LAC properties dialog?
My virtual adapter, I assume you mean the virtualbox host-only network? (Used for a virtual PC I use to VPN into work)

I've never messed with those settings...which ones should or shouldn't be checked?
