Are you in XP? Control Panel > Network Connections > Right-click on connection > Properties > Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" then Properties.

It is set to obtain an IP address automatically

UPDATE: I can now access the router config page on the new computer (i changed the ip address in the properties of the Local Area Connection) but i am still unable to connect to any websites =/

That is probably because you have not set the DNS correctly.

Try to go to http://64.233.167.99 if you see google, then I was right and you need to set the address of your dns server.

Thanks for your help, the internet is now working (posting this from my new computer):)

It was the DNS that wasnt allowing me to surf the net. So i changed my dns to OpenDNS.

Thanks once again.:)

OpenDNS has ads, and will be slower than the Optus DNS servers.

Switch to using the Optus ones unless there are other problems with using them. You can tell your computer the addresses of the Optus ones, or you can tell it the address of the router, and tell the router the Optus DNS server addresses.

OpenDNS seems to be fine so far, and no ads...
