How is your Win XP PC connected to the Clear router, by an Ethernet cable or does the PC have a wireless card installed?

Yes, but does the old XP machine have a wireless card with the proper drivers installed already -- since you are not on a wired connection?

All of your other devices have built in wireless, but most older desktops do not unless added.

The Mac and PC must have the same ip address and the conflict only allows one to connect at a time. You should be able to allow more address assignment in the Clear configuration page.
