Unhappy wireless card problem

So I have a very generic usb2.0 wifi g card in a desktop with windows XP, it connects to my wifi router but then I get no internet. I have two other computers that connect just fine and get the web, what's the deal. Any ideas?

How are the others connected to the router through ethernet or WiFi

Is your network WiFi card setup to get Ip adresses automatically or Did you set it up

If its automatic then it should work, if its not then set it to automatic

all of the other computers connect through wifi and i actually forgot to mention that this just started happening out of nowhere, and prior to this for some reason IE didnt work but firefox would. I thought it might have been the firewall permission being un checked but its not.
