not sure if I understand your problem...

There is a feature in XP called Media Sense. What it does is it disables the
TCP stack if there is no network cable attached. You can switch it off by

New entry in this folder
-Name: DisableDHCPMediaSense
-Typ: REG_DWORD -Boolean
-Value: 0, 1 (False, True) Default: 0 (False), hence 1 to switch off
MediaSense for TCP/IP.
