Question PC Not using routers internet?!?!?!

I got a Wireless router (D-Link Wireless G) set it up no problems.My laptop will use the internet from it no problems,But My Main pc wont! I copied the settings from my laptop to my pc and then it says "Limited or no connectivity".So i copied the settings from the router itself (I.P,DNS,Gateway.....) it sends and receives packets but will not use the internet from it,I have ran the network setup wizard and checked the option "This computer connects to a local gateway or through another computer on the network" and have turned off windows firewallWhat is the matter?

If your copying the setting directly, then your ip addresses are gonna be the same. Set the computer to find ip address automatically (DHCP)
