It happened recently. I have not installed or uninstalled any new hardware or software. One day, I just turn the laptop on and there is no internet connection of any kind. I was able to connect to my home wireless network.
There is no problem with the router. When I switch to Vista, everything works fine. When I use other Wi-Fi devices, there is no problem either.
Does anyone know what seems the cause here?

a dual-boot system. Does it matter?
It matters to anybody trying to trouble shoot the problem. Hardware failure moves way, way down the list of suspects with this info. :)

No, I don't think a hardware part could be causing the problem because, as I said, I have been the laptop regularly and the internet stopped only in XP. I was expecting Vista to create problems without any reason (from what I've heard people saying). Vista is not that bad at all, as it turns out.

Yeah, I just confirmed the possibility and eliminated this option by supplying my past experience with the machine, which you've never seen.
