Question about Intel Pentium M , 1.5 GHz Processor
Seems that you are having a big trouble. :)
U cloned the MAC adresses ... I wonder what that means...Anyway......
Now both machines can't be connected to the internet...Did u check your network card of the XP machine? If there are any errors related to software drives, Get the computer management console by right clicking on My Computer icon and selecting manager. OR just do a search for Device Manager.
Then Get the device manager and click on it. Check whether there are any Yellow Exclamation Marks.
Go to the Event Viewer in the same console and under the System Category, Check for any Errors given with a red x.
Chek in task manager whether those processes are running. If so go to safemode (I'll tel you how) or just end those processes using taskmanager. Remove all those Startup entry ticks also.
Then you will ba asked to reboot, you can reboot after that.
If possible, check your network card.
Third step. Of course Virus Scanning.
I don't recommend Either AVG or Norton.
This may probably b coz of a Virus Infection.
What you have to do is, get the Run box from the start menu and type in msconfig.
Then in the new window, go to Startup tab. Then read all the entries and search each exe to check whether its a virus. Or u can post it here. So we can check. Can u get task manager by pressing ctrl + alt + del together (exclude+) .
Reboot the system and press F8 before the boot screen appear. Then chose Safemode with Networking option. Then Log in after booting up and check whether it happenes again. You can do it for both machines.
If it doen't happen and if u cud connect to the net that means it has to be a virus.
In windows xp machine. Go to My computer DClick it. Go to tools->folder options->view
Set the option to View Hidden Files And Folders.
Under that there are two options (Very next two)
Remove those ticks.
Then do OK.
Then go to a root like C:
Now u will be able to see Hidden and system folders and files. Like System Volume Information and boot.ini, IO.sys, autoexec.bat etc. If you can't see them in both the Systems, that means the registry entries are modified by Viruses.
You can download online virus scanners from here. I will list the top 2 AV suite providers' Online Scanners.
Another thing. If you have shared any folders using the two systems, please remove them.
Next step is going to safemode and do a system restore
when u r entering you will be asked to. I don't think that its gonna make any difference to the XP machine coz its suffering from this trouble for too long.
If you can memorize the day that it went down at the very first time, you can try to restore the system at that point by selecting the date from the restore points, if thoses dates are available of course.
Try these steps and let up know.
The Q is long and the Answer is so long :D
Hope U can understand it.
Please, Kindly rate the answer if it is helpful to u.
Best of Luck

Cloning your MAC address may be the source of your trouble. There is no reason to do that on your computers or your router.
The "network connection unplugged" message simply means your computer cannot "see" the network. It does not mean your cable is physically unplugged. If actually unplugging the cable and plugging it back in has ANY effect I would try a different cable. If you have the same thing with multiple cables I would replace the NIC.
Zoombli is worthless at best, harmful at worst. I would get rid of it at once. Do a google for it, you will see nothing beneficial except from their own home page. It would not surprise me one bit if your problem went away as soon as zoombli was gone.
