    That ADSL router of yours - how does it work? Does it do NAT and stuff?

    Try releasing it manually next time you shut down WinXP. If I recall correctly (I don't use Windows), the command for doing that in Windows is this:
    ipconfig /release
    Alternatively, you can shut off the modem and turn it back on once WinXp is shut down. You can also (if you run through a router like me...) turn off the router and bring it back up onve Winxp is down. both methods will force new IP leases in DHCP mode.
