Trendnet tew-633gr router problems

I purchased a trendnet tew-633 N router and have had nothing but trouble ever since. I have an XPPRO and vista side by side. I went through the setup disk on one then the other attempting to get them both to work. The comp that I didn't set it up on accesses the net fine, but the setup comp does not. I can put in trendnet's ip add. and bring it up but neither firefox, IE, or opera browsers work. The comps are both using the lan connections as I am not even considering using the wireless for a different xp machine until I can get these two to play together. I am not very savvy on the nuts and bolts or I would try and manually configure from the trendnet page. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You didn't tell if your old machine was on DSL.

So I can't guess if you need to uninstall Verizon or other DSL software.

Why did you not tell this?

Zone Alarm

In reply to: Is ZONE ALARM installed there?

Yes zone alarm is installed but disabled it for the setup with no difference noted. I went ahead and setup the wireless trendnet usb adapter to an xp comp in another room and it worked for the wireless but have the following message on the xp pro comp that the router was setup on: Windows - System error There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network
BTW on the vista comp(the one that I can browse on, under network map, both the vista and xp pro are shown along with the trendnet router. Still no luck with the xp pro comp.

There is an issue with ZA.

In reply to: Zone Alarm

Uninstall it for now. Remember that ZA disabled can still cause the connection to fail. The reason for this issue is at our XP forum so I'll stop here.
