Andy if you haven't already done it, disable  Encryption.  The 2wire905 router 
is only capable of WEP and doesn't do WPA, and (IMHO) you probably 
don't need it anyway.  Firestorm called it right, your modem/router is strange 
(wireless and a single LAN port). 

Did you check and try any of Floppyjoe's posts on the Ubuntu Forum link 
I sent you?

Since your configuration sets-up dhcp that works in XP then the same should
apply to Ubuntu.(dhcp is dhcp regardless).

Do you have (or have access to) a live CD of Knoppix, or some other
distribution?  How about Puppy, believe you mentioned in an earlier 
thread? 

Would help to know if one of the live CD distributions can configure 
and activate your wificonnection.
