What is there to do, when it's still not working, and the only difference between 2 computers is one has XP, the other Vista? Same router, the Xp one works perfectly.

make sure the router has the correct mac address for the vista machine and add it to the mac list. Make sure the vista computer connects to the router when the router is not broadcasting the ssid. there should be a check box for this.
