Limited or no connectivity

I've searched through many places with problems like this, but can't find one that is this problem exactly, so none of the solutions have worked for me yet.

I've got a wireless router that seems to be working fine. Computer 1 connects with both cable and wireless.
Computer 2 works when wired to the router, but the wireless connection is:
Signal Strength: Excellent
Status: Limited or no connectivity.

I've tried restarting both the computer and the router. I've put in my WEP key several times. I've tried various other fixes. Any ideas?

Check the IP addresses in computer 2.
Are you using static IP addresses or is the router assigning them with DHCP?
MAC filtering on the router?

You'll have to fill me in - what is DHCP?
How do I know if I'm using static IP addresses?

OK.. so I tried making the IP for the wireless connection and it tells me I have an excellent connection and status is connected, but when I try to use the internet, the page doesn't load. Any ideas?
