Go into your network connections and first make sure that your NIC is seen by windows then make sure it's enabled(right click and select enbable). Then right click go to properties. Right click properties on TCP/IP and make sure it's set to recieve IP and DNS addresses automatically. I'd also right click disable the wireless connection just for kicks.
If you don't see any reference to your NIC in the network connections(though xp should auto detect it you may want to reinstall it)
