If you must you can go in and instead of dynamically setting IP addresses you can do it statically by manually putting in the IP, gateway, and subnet mask.
I'd try the Internet Connection Wizard first. Again that's if I remember XP correctly.
I tried entering the subnet, gateway and ip manually but it still never caught on. I'm not sure if I was doing it right when I went into my laptop that does connect and went to properties to get all the subnet, gateway & ip information?
I'll try the wizard later tonight.
