Default no internet using vista

I finally installed vista on dual boot. I have a wireless network at home using a netgear router. On my desktop I use the WG111v1.2 usb adapter. It works fine on my XP side. On the Vista side, it installed fine, but I had to use the XP drivers. After I ran through the netgear wizard, it said its connected to the router. Now I dont have dhcp on my router. I manually assign ip addresses to all my machines. When I assigned a new internal ip and set gateway to ip of the router, it didnt connect. I tried to ping the router, and it said destination unreachable. Anybody know whats going on?? I have setup everything else but w/o internet, its worthless, as I cant get updates or download the Directx 10 demos I wanted to try out in the first place.

I tried connecting using wire but that also could not connect tot he router.

Did you add a wireless connection in Vista (designate the SSID and any encryption you might be using)?
