XP and Vista laptops won't access net at same time :/

I'm setting up a wireless network in my house and am having a problem getting my XP laptop and my roommates Vista laptop on at the same time. I can get one or the other accessing the internet (when right clicking on network and repairing). I'm assuming this is an IP conflict since when I get her Vista laptop accessing the net, a yellow triangle with an exclamtion mark pops up in my task bar and then my laptop won't access the net. My guess is I have to set up a static IP for both?

How do I remotely access my home computer while on the road? (XP behind Belkin -g router, with dynamic IP via comcast)

MetaNetowrkingGeek question.

I have an XP box behind a wireless Belkin -g router (it's hardwired to the router, my powerbook uses the G around the house).

I'm going to be away for a week.

I'm on a Dynamic IP via comcast.

How do I access my machine:
Optimally -
1) Windows Remote Access (There's a Mac client - I could control the PC)
2) SMB (or FTP if SMB is blocked/not secure enough)

I get the whole "dyndns" and it's variants (although I'm not sure it's set up right). It's just not working. Port mapping at the router? What? What? What to do?

Router Somehow Blocking Visibility of Printer from Machines

StupidRouterFilter: Suppose you have a DSL modem with a computer running XP coming out of it, with a printer attached. Two other machines coming out of the DSL modem can of course see the printer just fine. However, there is also a router coming out of the modem (don't ask), and none of the machines coming out of the router can see the printer. Is there any way to make them able to use that printer?
