You've put a networking problem in as a WinXP issue without describing the network topology.  Perhaps the WinXP systems are set up to use the original connection, and the new router eventually tires of that behavior and cuts those systems off; you can look in the router's logs around the time the WinXP systems drop off for clues.  Look things up, read the manuals, and you will have a better network for your understanding of its operation.

You may need to reset your device and you will see a reset button at back of your router so all you need is to keep holding it for 10 seconds then unplug the power jack for like 1 min and then your device shall be reset.But please make sure to backup your all settings first.

I was having a similar problem, and solved it by upgrading the firmware of my router. Once I did the firmware upgrade, blocking worked fine. You can get the firmware upgrade by going to the Linksys website, clicking on Support, and then specifying your router model number.

My zoom adsl x5 modem/router will not let me go wireless


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.
