I have never had any problems with getting XP vm's in Virtual PC to network with host and to connect to Internet. Just go to vm's settings, select Networking in the left pane, set number of adapters to 1 and choose your host's NIC from drop down list. Click OK to save settings.

VM should be shut down, not hibernated or running when changing this setting.
