I would have expected the Default Gateway to have the same IP address
as DHCP Server and DNS Server. Looks like you have a somewhat strange
setup. Also, your second DNS server address looks unusual -- if you
are using a normal single router setup, then Gateway, DHCP and DNS
should all point to the same IP address. Most routers use 192.168.x.1
as their address, unless you have set yours up specifically to be
different.

While it is perfectly permissible to have different DNS servers (not
use your router which will pass through to your ISP's servers), your
DHCP and Gateway addresses really should be the same (unless perhaps
you are linking to a Domain Server. Are you set up in a Domain or a
Workgroup?
