Connecting to internet, desktop prblem only.

I'm having trouble connecting to the internet with my desktop computer. I have a cable modem attached to a wireless router. All other computers in the home are connected to the router and are accessing internet fine. I've tried hooking the desktop directly to the modem, and have also tried to access the router using the wireless card installed in the desktop. It connects to the modem and the router just fine receiving an ip address but won't connnect to the internet.

I try pathping google.com in the cmd and it says "unable to resolve target [site here]"

I've cycled all components and refreshed my ip address using ipconfig /release, /renew.

Again all other computers connect fine except the desktop.

OS is xp, forgot to mention that.
