That 400Mb connection is probably only as far as the router. Sometimes XP needs to have a tick in Control Panel>Internet Options>Connection tab>LAN button>"Automatically detect settings". Click Apply and OK your way then restart Internet Explorer.

Can you try that again with punctuation?

Are you trying to make a dual-boot with win 7 & win XP? XP won't connect to the internet?

In XP, go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager>Network Adapters and right click the relevant adapter then go to Properties. Click on the Details tab and note down the four characters after the VEN and the four after DEV. Using your other computer go to http://www.pcidatabase.com and enter those characters in the boxes for VEN for Vendor and DEV for Device and you should be guided to the right place for the XP driver.

Hopefully, your problem is that the existing driver in the XP installation is the Windows 7 version and the above should correct that.
