A recent mac laptop with Tiger & bootcamp/win XP will connect to the internet via a Netgear DG834G adsl modem with ethernet cable in tiger & XP but only in xp with wireless.
If I understand you correctly you have an Intel based MAC, with the boot-camp boot manager, so you can choose to boot either from the native MAC OS or from Windows XP.
The system works fine from the MAC OS, but the (wired) ethernet does not work from XP.
1) When you boot into XP mode, the XP operating system is in
charge and the MAC OS is dormant.
2) Check the XP device manager to see if the ethernet NIC
(network device) is properly installed and if the device
drivers are functioning.
From Windows XP:
Right click My Computer ==> Properties => Hardware ==>
==> Device Manager ==> Network Adapters =>
==> Your network controller
Right click on your network controller ==> properties
Check the device status !!!
2) If the device is NOT working properly, you may need to
download and install a device driver for this card.
3) If the device IS working properly, you may need to run
the NETWORK SETUP WIZARD from the control panel:
START ==> Control Panel ==> Network Setup Wizard ==>
4) Assuming you are connecting to DSL with a login password,
use the: "My computer connect to the internet through a
If your DSL is always on, or if you use a local router to
connect to the DSL modem (the router does the work)
Then you choose the: "My computer connects to the
internet through another computer or a residential gateway"
