Router Trouble

Okay, here's the problem: I have two computers that connect to a wireless router, one can connect to the router (without a wireless card), one can't (with the wireless card).... have changed out ethernet cables, have updated drivers, have even changed out routers, and still can not connect to the router via ethernet (the one with the wireless card), the computer (desktop) in question has a wireless card in it but have removed it for the purpose of trying to get ethernet cable to read.

troubleshooting done to date:
Changed ethernet cables
removed wireless card
rebooted windows
wiped and re-installed vista
changed routers
updated drivers

What gets me, is the router sees that I'm trying to connect to it, so I don't think that the motherboard is trashed (ethernet card is built onboard to the motherboard). Also, there is talk between the computer and the router, but no internet.

Any ideas?

TIA for all the help. :)
