have you tried installing the wireless adaptor on this comp. also have you tried another ethernet cable, it might just come down to a dodgy lead.

Are any of the other computers wired directly to the router? If not try and connect one of them to the router in the same port that your computer is in and see if the problem still exists. It could actually be a router hardware problem.
