Default Modem won't assign IP address


Hello. I have a Billion ADSL 2 wireless modem. The modem is working, and we have 2 iphones, a MAC, and a computer running windows XP on the network.

However the modem will not assign my new computer (a toshiba) an IP address through the wireless connection. The modem does assign an IP address when I connect with a cable, and I am able to use the internet in this way. The computer is running windows XP.

the laptop searches for the wireless network, and it says "acquiring network address" but then no address is actually assigned.

The laptop does connect to other wireless networks (ie. at my parents place).
I have downloaded the latest driver software for my internal wireless modem (realtek).

I have tried manually assigning IP and DNS address using the same address given when using the cable.
I have also tried manually assigning a unique ip address. When I do either of these, the computer tells me "the wireless is now connected" but I am unable to open any webpages (in explorer). And it then disconnects after about 20 seconds.

Yes, I have also tried allowing the modem to assign ip address automatically. It won't assign one.

The modem does assign one to the other laptop on the network automatically.
