Simple things first.
Have you checked the connections?
Is your line activated?
Is you pc set to use the router as the default gateway?
What set up did you have before this new router?
Have you set up the internet account on the router settings.
usually done via a disk supplied with the router or by logging onto the router interface which is my preffered method.

Ping www.google.com

you should get back an IP address before any of the ping responses.
If you do, then DNS is working.  If not, then not.

If DNS isn't working then run Start/run/cmd <enter>
type:
ipconfig /all <enter>

and post here.

Hi!
Is the DHCP server service enabled in the router?

Look at the PC with working network settings and copy DNS addresses to the other.

Post both ipconfig responses.
Regards,
