can you post the Network settings from the phone -
IP Address
Gateway
DNS

I suspect on the XP machine something is blocking this access - do you have a firewall like, norton, mcafee on the machine - or EVER in the past ?

if you connect the PC to the router by wire - does it work ?
if not would you try, while still connecting by wire, with safemode with networking

as the PC starts keep taping F8 as the PC starts
a menu appears choose safemode with networking

see if that works

if that does not work, you could try using google open DNS
http://code.google.c...eed/public-dns/
the page also shows how to configure

Try google open dns - instructions are on the page on how to configure
http://code.google.c...eed/public-dns/

This info tells you where the DNS information is stored
