Could be a plethora of reasons for this - normally network related. But looking at the software side first and bearing in mind XP Pro is officially To view the link you have to Register or Login - unsupported since early last year are you sure you want to be connecting to the net with it in the first place? If you still want to you may want to check the service pack level you have installed with - I would ensure you have SP3 installed first. You can download the offline installer for SP3 somewhere else and install there. Once you have that in place and still not connecting we can look at the network side.

Nope sp2 and I don't have any other Os lying around apart from win 7 which the sever won't support
If I could find an os to down load and set up even on evaluation I would but nothing seems to want to load

The SP3 standalone download is just over 300mb from here To view the link you have to Register or Login - do you have another machine you can get that down from and add to usb key/cd and install locally on your machine, it will contain a wealth of updates plus you can get the latest version of IE when you download.

Leaving the software side alone and looking at the network, im assuming you can...

1.See your network adapter within device manager
2.Ping your default gateway (your router address)
