Wi-Fi Works, Ethernet Doesn't

  1. Over multiple devices on the network, wifi works (including this laptop I'm running on). However, any time I try to use ethernet (including on this laptop), there is no internet connection. The error when troubleshooting is Dns server not responding. While on ethernet connection, I can access the networked printer, but cannot access the default gateway (so connection is going from room to the modem, and through)
    I have tried restarting the wifi/lan modem, which then connects to another router down stairs which I haven't restarted (my dad won't let me). I have tried flushing dns, uninstalling and re installing the adapter, starting in safe mode with networking.

    This is my ipconfig /all while on wifi:
