If that is your ipconfig from the computer you are having trouble with then the problem is to do with the wireless adapter as there is no mention of it in the config.

It looks like its installed okay but is it turned on?

Are you running the software that comes with the wireless device or are you letting windows configure it?

Firstly, it appears that you have network adapters in a "Network Bridge". Highlight an adapter in the bridge, right click it and select "Remove from Bridge". Repeat for any other adapters in the bridge, then right click the bridge itself and delete it.

You now need to "Connect" your Wireless Network Adapter to the router. In other words, run the wireless adapter's software, scan for "Available Wireless Networks", find and highlight the one that matches your router's SSID (network name) and select the option to "Connect" to it. You should be prompted to enter any WEP or WPA encryption key and, once "Connected", the wireless adapter should get its IP address by DHCP from the router and you should have network and internet access.

There is a difference between the Wireless Network Adapter and Router communicating with a good signal and "Connecting" (as in "logging in") to your Wireless network.
