It has been a while since I ran XP, so can you open a command prompt. in it type ipconfig /all. make a screen shot of it using the built in snipping tool (type snipping in search) and upload it to us using the attachment icon (shaped like a paper clip) see pics

thanks

I also found WIn7 to be markedly better at finding and binding to network equipment. XP (for me) was always less durable especially with wireless connections.

Start at the beginning (Device Manager) and make sure you still have XP drivers in there etc. Then view your Network Connections, ipconig .. release renew, etc., and if you still don't have a connection move on to the netsock stack. Rebooting always helped my XP system for some reason.
