The problem is the default gateway isnt set so it doesnt know were to go. On a pc that works open a cmd windows(start/run\cmd) type ipconfig /all note the ip address the subnet mask and the gateway(this will be the same address as the router)

On the one that cant connect set a fixed ip by adding 3 to the last number of the ip you just got, set the subnet the same and the default gateway add the plus nets dns and it should all work. So if the working pc is

10.0.0.1 subnett 255.255.255.0 default gateaway 10.0.0.2 then the one that doesnt work should be 10.0.0.4 subnet 255.255.255.0 default gateway 10.0.0.2 and then plusnets dns
