You want the device that is establishing your Internet connection...the Zyxel router in your case...to handle DHCP and NAT functions for the network. Any other routers on the network need to be configured in "bridge mode" to allow the Zyxel to function as the main router on the network.
However, the network does drop on occasions and when I re-wake my MBP (wirelessly connected) it often cannot find the internet (though it is on the home wireless network) and occasionally it tells me another computer is using my IP address.
The Zyxel router is in charge of DHCP (IP address assignment), so that is the place to look at first for issues relating to the errors that you are seeing. If you have made a number of configuration changes to the network, sometimes it is best to simply reset devices back to factory defaults and reconfigure them again. I can't say whether this will fix your issues, but it could not hurt.MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.5), Time Capsule, AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express, iPhone

However, I have reset all and started again so hopefully all will be well - if it plays up I will revert with the relevant error.
