Network Down

Okay, heres the situation. I have two computers, both running windows 2000. One computer (lets call it computer A) has verizon DSL. For Christmas I got a wireless router and adapter. I set these up, allowing the other computer (computer B) to access files, printers, and the internet. It has worked fine until yesterday. Something was wrong with computer A so I had to repair the windows installation. Since this, computer B has not been able to connect to computer A. Computer A still can access the internet fine. The odd thing is, computer B says that it found and connected to the wireless network, but the computers are not talking(it sends packets but does not recieve any). I tried resetting the router and adapter, and reinstalling the software it came with. Neither worked. All settings appear to be the same. Any thoughts?

I should also add that computer B says its connected to the correct network, and computer A says that /it/ is connected to the correct network

Have you setup file and printer sharing on computer A since the repair?

Its still setup. The repair didnt seem to change much at all, it only took like a few minutes. Plus, even if they weren't set up I would still get internet, which I dont

In fact, the wireless router control panel actually acknowledges computer B, but will not talk to it. This is really puzzling
