All my computers & laptops have internet connection except one

I have recently installed Windows XP on my Laptop , and for some reason I don't have any internet connection. I have no idea why it's not finding my router. I provided an image below . The Laptop I have is an Acer Aspire 3000.

Do you have a network cable between the laptop and the router?

Looks like you have no Ethernet connected and you have a firewall make sure you enable Internet or disable it for now .

You will need the LAN/NIC (Local Area Network/Network Interface Card) driver installed, you maybe lost it in the new install.

If the answer had been yes, I was going to ask if there were any signs of life via the jack's LEDs?

In XP, the red X on an adapter is not caused by lack of connectivity to the internet.... so I am confused by your suggesting that the firewall be checked.
