Limited or no Conectivity

Hello guys. I have a Zoom Modem and it is downloaded in my Computer XP and my Laptop Toshiba. I have no problem with my internet connection on my laptop however in my Windows XP I cannot access the internet. It tells me I have limited or no connectivity at all. I did some reasearch and I ended with frustration. I called ATT and they are a bunch of good for nothing, did not help me because I did not have their modem. However I kept telling them it was not a Modem Problem. If it were I wouldnt be able to access my laptop.

I noticed today that when i connect the cable for internet into my XP and check the IP Config through cmd. I saw it had no Default Gateway, meanwhile my laptop I checked it and it did have a Default Gateway.(similar to my IP but not exact)

How can I fix my Windows XP Default Gateway, maybe thats the problem? Please help
(My DHCP is enabled)

if you arent using a router/switch and switching between laptop and pc by simply moving the ethernet cabling from on to the other the most likely problem is mac address cache, its more typical in cable modems then dsl modems however i have had this happen when i had dsl. the best thing to do when switching cables between computers (if thats what you are doing) is to turn the power off to the modem while switching cables, then change computers, turn off the pc you switched too, then power on the modem, then power on the pc, it all should work that way.
