Adding XP Home disables other connection

I have had a wireless network with a single Windows ME machine running for several months. Just added a new Win XP Home machine. During the set up I was advised to run the XP networking software on the ME machine, which I did.

Now the XP machine is working fine, but the Me machine cannot access the Internet nor the workgroup. The wireless connection indicator says it is connected with a good signal. Can the XP setup mess up the ME connectivity?

I can hook up another XP laptop to the router and see both XP machines in the workgroup, but not the ME.

How to fix?
