Windows Vista & XP

Specs: Windows XP
I currently have a windows XP on the computer that can actually connect to the internet through the wireless router (Zxyel 330P), but windows vista will connect to the router, but no internet connection. I have downloaded and updated the firmware, but it still does not work. I cannot even ping the ip address through the Vista computer. Any help would be appreciated.

Open a command prompt window on the vista PC and type the following commands:

ipconfig /release [Enter]
ipconfig /renew [Enter]

and see if it can then access the internet afterwards.

If not, open a command prompt window on both the vista and the XP PC's and type the following command:

ipconfig /all

Compare the output. Everything should be identical except the IP address. If there are any differences, such as different DNS or Gateway address, that's the issue.
