Dual system woes

I recently installe XandrOS in my system as the second OS. Primary is Win XP. I had everything runnig well in Win XP but as of the Xandros install i lost connectivity to the internet.
My Connection is through cable using a motorola modem.
between the modem and my computer i have a router for the phone since i am using Vonage.
While in XandrOS, I see the light for the computer connection light up. If I reboot to go into Windoze, the light doesn't come up and the system says i have a disconnected cable.
I need to have acces to the internet due to some programs and data in Windoze.
I think that Linux blocked the connection due to security issues.
Help please? I would hate to have to ditch Linux now that i have finally taken the first step.If you need more info please let me know.

Linux will have nothing to do with anything in Windows. Have you tried power-cycling your router?

I did and check this out... i tried for hours to reset the nic. Funny thing was that while in Linux, i had access no problems. If i rebooted to WinXP it would tell me cable disconnected. Then i tried this morning and again it was the same, then i came in the afternoon and all of a sudden it was working again.
What the hey?... and now, linux is moving at a snail's pace.
What gives? I really want to dump redmond, but this is hardly encouraging...
I am using XandrOS release 3.0.2 or something like that. Do you recommend another distro?
