On Dell computers it is rare that the XP install disk properly reinstalls your Network Card drivers. If you have the Device Drivers CD that came with your dell (usually a blue or gray disk) you can install the drivers (usually a Broadcom or Intel NIC /LAN or Network Interface driver) then your PC can "see" internet connections. The CD will show you all the drivers you can install with a check mark next to each that apply to your system.
If you do not have the CDROM, go to support.dell.com on another PC and enter your system tag# (on the bottom or back) and look in "Network" and find the driver there. There are a few options so you might need to try several drivers till you find the one that works. 90% of Dell pc's come with Broadcom so try that first. save the driver to a disk or flash drive and run it on the PC in question.
You also will likely need drivers for the video card and chipset as well.
