Connected to my router, but can't browse.

Specs: Windows XP Home edition, Dell/ 1.25GB of Ram
I just installed a new router (wmndr3300v1) using my laptop. My internet works from my laptop, but I can't connect from my desktop. I know I need to install it onto my desktop, but when I try typing in the ip it doesn't work. I also tried adding new hardware and that doesn't work as well. I am missing the cd it came with so using that is not an option. I've checked multiple times that all the cords are connected, as well as resetting the modem, router, and computer. All of the lights are lit up correctly as well. My modem is a westell.

Is DHCP configured on your router?

Is the NIC on your desktop set to get it's TCP/IP settings automatically?

The answer to both should be "yes" and then your desktop would get it's settings from the router and would be able to access the LAN and the internet.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
