@oleschri - unfortunately not. bizarrely, connectivity came back for 10 seconds or so then stopped again. Possibly the tracert was running during a brief period of working. I've found a workaround (see my latest edit).

@oleschri - Yeah running as admin. I managed to add it after using route delete, results are here. (thanks for your assistance by the way, really appreciate it)

Yeah I've seen that before but this router does allow this, particuarly as I'm currently on the config page from my laptop (wirelessly)!

When I enter the above command, it returns "The route addition failed: The object already exists." I should also note that running tracert seems to take about 10 mins or so, is this normal?

@Ramhound - I'm not sure I understand? I know the router (192.168.1.1) is a local address, I just wanted to demonstrate that it couldn't even connect to the router, let alone the internet. The DNS address appears to belong to Virgin, my current ISP and because this address works fine with the other machines, I'm cautious to believe that this is were the issue is.

OK booted up in Safe Mode (with networking) and it still doesn't connect. Interestingly perhaps, when I run ipconfig /all, there is a Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address listed as 169.254.20.204(Preferred)? I will try and burn off a live CD and see if that provides any insight...

OK I've uploaded the results of the tracert, route print commands (as well as a recent ipconfig /all). I'm not familiar with the command though so I'm not certain how to interpret the results. The router does have the ability to filter mac addresses but that isn't set up. Also I'm not sure why it says "(Preferred)" when I have it set up to automatically find an IP?

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).
