Seeing as how you just reinstalled XP, if you have SP2 on there, then the firewall is (I believe) automatically turned on by default. That would prevent the game from connecting.
You can disable the firewall in the control panel. I'm not familiar with the windows built in firewall at all, but if you want to have it on, you might be able to find a way to allow the firewall to "grant access" for Guild Wars.
Hope it helps!
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
