    I checked it again its the right IP. Also ping worked sent 4 packets received 4 (0% loss). Also now it says connected but troubleshooting is saying DNS server isn't responding.

    Lets see if we can start your DNS Client

    Open a command prompt as administrator

    And type or paste this into it
    net start Dnscache
    I'm not sure what to do if this does not work, Maybe reboot the computer, Or even turn all the computers off and shut down the router for a minute then restart the router and then restart the computer.

    It said the service name is invalid. I tried rebooting as well but still same problems. Thanks for your help though, let me know if you have any more suggestion. Otherwise hopefully someone else can solve this.

    I note that your Wifi network shows as secured. Have you been able to enter the password? If not, try disabling Wifi security in the router config and see if you get internet. In addition, I have seen situations where it was necessary to disable ipv6 for the adapter.

    Don't Disable IPv6 your going to need it one day, Windows usually uses IPv6 to communicate with other computers on your net work and also many ISP's are enabling IPv6 since IPv4 addresses are running out.

    I have a few more commands you can try from an administrator command prompt

    netsh interface ip delete arpcache
    Reboot see if that works

    If not try this
    netsh winsock reset

    No luck with:
    netsh interface ip delete arpcache
    netsh winsock reset
    Returned the system cannot find the file specified
