dhcp is the thing that sends an ip address to your computer. if it's not enabled then you can't get an ip, so can't get internet. the ip address 192.168.?.? which is what you've got means that your computer has given you an automatic private address - basically, useless.

I have DHCP enabled and I am getting my IP address from my router. You example shows an IP address but no on DHCP. This means someone had to go into your network configuration and enter it statically (manually). If not you would have a different address such as 169 instead of a 192 address.
