Pinging 8.8.8.8 from the broken computer returns either: "Destination host unreachable" or "Request timed out". Pinging the router (192.168.1.1) returns the same.

I set up the machine to have a static local IP (outside the range of normally allocated DCHP addresses) using the router's ip for the gateway, subnet of 255.255.255.0, and the DNS servers that have been confirmed to work on other machines in the network and this still doesn't work. Troubleshooting tries to reset the wireless adapter but this fails to restore connectivity. What I don't understand is why I can't even access the router's configuration page when Windows shows me to be connected to it's network...

Mm I looked up the connection information on both working (i.e. internet capable) computers and they both list DNS servers as: 194.168.4.100, 194.168.8.100. Both machines have no trouble pinging 8.8.8.8 (as the internet is working for them).
