accessing internet on WIN XP

add2rahul
in my PC, i am not able to access internet on WIN XP. Server is able to assign IP address to my PC,but when i try to open any site on explorer it gives an error saying "IE can not open the search page".I think there is some setting issue.
here is the configuration details:

network card:: Pro100
DHCP enabled.
DNS automatic
Net connection: Reliance Wimax

Can anybody please suggest me what could be the problem?
On the same PC my internet is running good on Linux OS.

    Open the Internet Properties dialog (Tools | Internet Properties).

    Select the Connections tab and click on LAN Settings. Clear all checkboxes. Restart IE and try again.

    If so, use it to set up your connection settings. That should get you connected. If it doesn't, you should probably contact the provider.

    Thanks for the reply,
    no manual has been given,its a plug n play internet cable.and its assigning IP to my PC so my provider is asking me to replace the OS.
    since its working on my Linux PC,my internet provider says there is some problem with ur system.that he cant help.
    He showed me working on the WINXP on his laptop.
    Will reinstalling OS will solve the problem or any other way that i can get it solved?
