Google for private address ranges.
These are
10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
The 192 and 10 ranges are the most common.
It is advisable to have all devices on the local
LAN consistent, that is all IP addresses
are within one of these ranges.
Some routers default to the 10.0.nnn.nnn
range, and in this case you need to either
make you LAN consistent with this, or if
you can, change the routers LAN IP
address.
Routers have two IP addresses, the local
LAN one, and one facing your ISP.
From a C:\ prompt type
ipconfig /all C:\ipconfig.txt
ipconfig.txt will then show your PC's config.
Google for ipconfig for more info.
There are many free utilities that scan
IP address ranges, these show what
is connected on your lan and its IP
address, if your router is visible on your
LAN and it is within the IP address
range you specify in the utility it
shoud show up.
Don't specify too wide an IP range
or it takes ages to run.
Generally things sort themselves
out with DHCP allocating the addresses,
it's only when it doesn't work that
you have to use diagnostic tools, like
ipconfig, and address range scanners.
So in theory you shouldn't have this
problem, the auto setting should take
care of things.
You might usefully also Google for
static ip addressing.

No, the main problem is that your router is not connected to your PC. This
is shown by the Autoconfiguration IP address.

Connect the router to your PC using an ethernet cable between one of the
ethernet ports on the router, and the ethernet port on the PC. You should
see a light on the router to show that you have a connection. There may
also be a light on the PC, beside the RJ45 socket.

Do NOT try to use a wireless connection!!!

On the PC go to Control Panel | Network Connections and find "Local Area
Connection". Right click and make sure the connection is enabled. You
already know that the TCP/IP properties should be "auto" for IP address and
DNS server.

The PC should now talk to the router and obtain an IP address from it. If
this doesn't happen, make sure you "factory reset" the router - refer to the
manufacturer's manual for this.

If this fails, try a different router; and try a different PC, to establish
where the fault lies.
