Have you actually configured the router? When you use a router, it is the router, not the PC, which has to establish the internet connection with the ISP and it needs to be set up with your ISP settings so that it automatically connects when powered on. Any computers connected to the router then have internet access over the LAN from the router.

With a "wireless" router, it is normally necessary to connect initially by ethernet cable to perform the initial configuration.
