Xfinity gateway router not connecting to old XP computer

I hooked up a new xfinity gateway wireless router to my old computer with windows xp (2002)

I was able to hook up many other devices wirelessly, 2 pcs, a laptop and iphones.

However even though the box is connected directly to the XP computer I can not access the internet from my main computer.  which also means, now I can not print wirelessly from any of the other computers or laptop!  Help?
