At 100 MB/sec, you're pushing Gigabit Ethernet to its limits. You need a shielded CAT 6 cable in perfect condition, and not too long.
Changing your DNS settings won't have the slightest effect and is not beneficial in any other way.

I bought a 100' Cat 6 cable at Fry's today. Ran it across my house and plugged it into the problem computer. Instantly saw the router. Speed test was 150/57. Thank you Linc Davis!. Guess I'll be rewiring my home. What I still don't understand is why I can connect the laptops to that same older cable and they do fine. They are not performing at the same speed as the new cable, but they see they connect to the router easily and just did a speed test that came in at 94/59. Regardless, problem solved. Thanks.
