It looks like your DNS server is not working. Power off the router for about 5 minutes. Power on and wait few minutes to let it function back. Try to connect to the internet.

Move your computer to a place where wireless communication exist (many coffee shops, malls etc) and try to connect there. If you succeed then there is a problem with the "free" router which you mentioned. Please correct me if I am wrong: is this an unsecured router located close by? There is no low that I know of that prohibit such connection but obviously if the other guy move, switch off his router or got it damaged your internet connection goes with him.
