DSL router - Windows Networking

I am trying to connect an XP machine to an Actiontec 1520 DSL router. It works on a 98 machine and an ME machine but there must be a setting or something I am missing on this XP machine. I cannot ping, I have plugged in a laptop using that ethernet cable, so I know it works. Visi, my isp is at a stand still, no help. Any ideas would be great. thanks...

    Be sure all firewalls are turned off including the XP firewall. To see if
    the XP firewall is turned on, go to Control Panel, then Network Connections,
    right click "Local Area Network," select properties, go to the Advanced tab
    and be sure the firewall is not turned on.

    Is the XP machine getting an IP address from the router? To see,
    right click the connection and click Status | Support.

    If it's 169.254.x.x, that means that the network card isn't able to
    communicate with the cable modem. In that case, try the steps here:
