Default Need help with network troubleshooting

My computer has stopped working on my network. It has no communication, can't access or ping the router. I've tried different cables and different ports on the router and it hasn't helped any, though they work fine with other computers. Trying to release/renew the ip address gives me an error "unable to contact DHCP server. request has timed out". I can however connect this computer to my laptop with a crossover cable and go through it's wireless connection to access the network... so I suppose that confirms that the ethernet port on my computer works too? BTW the router is a Linksys WRT610N.
