new wifi has stopped main pc internet connection

I recently bought the basic netgear router with usb dongle included. My main pc was connected with ethernet cable and the internet worked ok for the 1st day or 2. I have 2 laptops which are both accessing the net but I cant get the internet on my main pc now. I disconnected the ethernet cable and used the dongle to see if the cable was the problem but that hasnt solved it. It is driving me crazy I would appreciate any advice which would solve this problem.

Try Control panel - Network connections. Under LAN or High-Speed Internet, see if you have a Local Area Connection for the Ethernet port.

Tried that one the computer connects to the router by both cable and dongle but just will not connect to the net with either method.Somebody told me I might have to manually put separate ip numbers in for each computer as the laptops may have grabbed the ip address that the main pc was using. I havent a clue what he was going on about
