Completely correct, the other thing you can do too is make sure that on your windows xp machine, that you don't have your ip addressing set to manually configured.

Go to start>control panel>network connections>right click on your network connection>click properties>click internet protocol (IP) under the general tab and click properties.

To release and obtain a new ip address after you have assured that you are set to receive an ip automatically, click start>run>cmd>ipconfig /release

The to renew type ipconfig /renew

that should at least give you some answers.
