    Have you reset the router to factory default settings?

    What is the brand and model of your modem?

    you can have a read of this if you want http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using.html

    your computer is connected to the router fine, might be the dns server, every time you browse the web the web address always goes through the dns server.
    you can try changing your DNS (dns is like a phone book)

    what OS have you got

    if its vista or windows 7 try this:

    control panel > network and sharing > Manage wireless networks (on the left) > select your router then click on the 'adapter properties'
    select internet protocol version 4 (NOT version 6) click on properties
    at the bottom of the window select the 'use the following DNS server addresses' radio button
    then in the preferred DNS server type 8.8.8.8 then click OK

    8.8.8.8 is the google's DNS server (address book)

    this will which your dns from your isp to google
