Help with new computer setup

Hi! I use my router (N300 WNR3500) as a connection between my outdoor security cameras and desktop computer.  I had been running Windows 7.  I just purchased a new tower with Windows 10.  I was hopeful that when I plugged my ethernet cable into the tower the computer would find it but it didn’t.  The electrician that installed my cameras years ago set up the router. I took a few notes but can't seem to get the computer to communicate with the router.  I wanted to try do this myself but I'm having no luck.  Can someone help me?  The "dummies" version with step by step instructions would probably help me the most. I downloaded the manual, but it hasn't helped either. Thanks.

What are you doing and what messages do you see?

 

How are you trying to communicate with the router? Browser? Wifi?

 

Does the PC get on to the Internet?
