    There are a fwe things I would try to attempt to work out what the problem is.

    1) Log on to your router and enable logging and try connecting again.

    Then you should be able to browse the logs and see if any messages/errors point in the right direction.

    2) Another thing to look at is the Windows event logs. It might be that your Windows XP firewall or some other software is blocking the connection.
    You might need to enable the camera software in windows firewall or it might need you to open a port.

    3) Or you might have MAC address filtering switched on in your router in which case you need to add the camera's MAC address to the filter list in the router.

    Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.
