If your router is older than vista then try the following if you can:

shut down all the PC's and the router.  Turn the router back on and let 
it come back up, then *only* turn on the Ubuntu PC.  See if it gets it's 
address and then gets out to the internet.  Then bring the other systems 
back up.

There are some reports that Vista made some changes to the UDP traffic 
and older routers or routers not updated with new instructions will 
cause malfunctions in the network traffic.  

Outside of this we may have to turn our attention to your router.  DHCP 
is working because you are getting an address.  The gateway is being set 
to the router All the other machines be name(mygateway1.ar7)
