Okay, you're using a wireless router. This could be a stupid question but are you trying to connect to that router via cable or WiFi? If it's WiFi then that's your problem, different procedure to get it all working then.

Nah, we are using cable coming from the router's ethernet port, to the computer, so basically its going from the modem -> router -> linux pc via ethernet.
WE have tried copying the settings, etc; are you SURE Linux supports internet connections like cable.. I really need help...
Course it supports cable internet. Can you ping the router or is eth0 not working at all? Since you say the router allocated IP addressed via DHCP then you should just need to select DHCP on the configure bit and click OK. That's whats good about DHCP, it doesn't require configuration.
