    Like Ellgor said power down your router. Actually power down everything and then power them up in order and let them run a minute or two before you power up the next device in the chain. Modem first, then router, then PC. Is your PC getting an IP address from your router. To check first open a command window, start=> run=> and type in cmd and hit enter. Now run ipconfing/all and post back the results. If you see for an IP address then your PC isn't getting on. Having for your DNS info will also mess things up.

    Type the following command on the command prompt (cmd.exe) on that problem PC, and make sure there is correct IP, netmask, gateway and DNS assigned. If not, fix the problem by configuring with correct information.

    ipconfig /all

    After that try to ping the gateway IP and make sure it works.

    If you don't have correct DNS assigned, you won't be able to surf website as your PC will fail to resolve the domain name. You can also use these free OpenDNS's DNS servers to access Internet if you like.
