I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop running XP. The problem is my Local Area Connection has a network cable unplugged, the other two connections work fine it says im connected to the Wireless Network Connection but i cant access the internet. However, when i plug an Ethernet cable into the router and laptop it connects to the internet.

I would check network connections and see if the adapter is disabled. If its not try to unintall the device but make sure you have the driver for the nic. U can download from dell. If that doesnt work sounds like a bad ethernet. If laptop is under warranty call dell. Other option is buy a pcmcia card.

Disable the network driver i.e lan driver and click on search option in device manager, it will show you the NIC card .. and enable it back. it will take the right driver( if not download the driver) and you can try connecting to internet.. remember if u have a static ip then you need to configure it in Tcp/IP options.
