Internet connection problems? Answered

Hi!  I am running Windows XP on a virtual machine.  My NIC settings are for a bridged adapter, and I need to keep it that way.  The host computer can communicate with microsoft.com and silverlight just fine, but my virtual machine can not (although every other website that I have tried works just fine... I'm actually posting this from my Virtual machine).  I also have a server that is running server 2003 that has the same problem.  All other PCs are running either Windows 7 Pro, (and my parents have Vista Home Premium).  Every computer including my parents work just fine with microsoft.com and silverlight.  My router is running DD-WRT micro, but I don't know if that helps any.  Since Server 2003 and XP both have the same problem, and Server 2003 is based off of XP, I'm wondering if it has something to do with XP.  I am using my virtual machine for testing purposes, and I need it to work with silverlight.  Any suggestions on how I might fix this?

I've read about similar problems (but not with your specific scenario). If you can't get the answer you need here, then try the Silverlight.net forums, as they deal with a multitude of problems, and someone there should be able to help you further.
