backup all important files not restorable from other sources before

1.Boot with XP CD or 6 floppy boot disk set.
2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.
3. Type bootcfg.
4. This should fix any boot.ini errors causing setup not to see the
XP OS install.
5. Try the repair install.

have you tried to fully reset your router? you can turn off your modem and router, but some routers have built-in batteries so have a reset button on the back usually, more often then not you need a pin or something small to get to your router reset button, keep it pressed in for atleaset 5seconds, then leave your router to reset on its own for a few moments, then turn on your pc and try the internet again. I say this as you may just have an IP conflict.

Either that or the ethernet chip on the motherboard is failing - you will need to disable this one from the BIOS and install a simple PCI LAN card in its place
