DNS server address for wireless connection to home network is always does not get correct DNS servers from router

This only occurs on my home network and only with wireless connection, the router base address is, I successfully get an ip address in the correct range ( and can connect and administer the router. Doing ipconfig /all shows the DNS server set to rather than the DNS server addresses shown on the router status page. The impact of this problem is no internet access, I have a work around by manually setting the DNS server addresses in the IPv4 config.

I've tried deleting the wireless profile in "manage wireless networks" and also in "set network properties", also tried ipconfig /flushdns and associated steps.

I'm running Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit edition and the issue is only on my laptop and no other devices.
