For the same hardware on your system the IP address needs to be the same, no matter how its connecting to the router. Also check your available IP addres range on the router. The IP address must be within the routers IP address range or it will not see it.
If you don't have any internet access, you can reset the router by unplugging it from power and then plug it back in. Do the same for your ADSL or cable ISP modem which you have connected on your TP-Link router. RESET FIRST YOUR ADSL MODEM and then your router.
Other solution might be to do ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew on your command line window from your computer.

Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.
Look for the MAC address clone feature on the router. If the router does not ahve the auto clone MAC feature, you'll need to manually input the MAC address of your computer.
To get the MAC address or Physical address of the computer do this
Click start>run>type in "cmd" and press okay (without the " ").
On the Command prompt type in ipconfig/all and then press enter, look for physical address.
Then input that on the MAC clone feature of the computer to your router and then power cycle everything (turn everything off and then turn on modem first-then router-then computer).
