One computer can reach router but not internet

I have two computers connected to a router. One can connect to the internet (I'll call it 'A'), but the other cannot (I'll call it 'B"). B can connect to the network, and view files on A. But when I try to browse the internet on it, it says 'Network Timeout'
Here's the IP configuration from the computer that can't connect to the internet.

    Change the DNS server setting to your ISP's provided DNS server IP address... not your router address. If you have a local AD/DC running DNS server, you could use that also but from what I can tell, you just need to change your DNS server IP address to your ISP's DNS server(s) they almost always give you two to pick from.
  2. Thank you skit75! This worked! :-D
