Default DD-WRT on WinXP Wire Lan help

Hi guys;my old Sony Vaio Pentium M WinXP sp3,
the Wireless on DD-WRT is great,but i can't get the Wire LAN working! when i boot to Linux Mint 17.1 xfce it works great on both Wireless and Wire Lan,when i connect the wire cable, i can see the wire connectivity activation icon with good connect.i don't mind it just working on wireless, but as i'm geek perfectionist,i will not sleep till i have everything working 100% right.even if i have to re-install WinXp again.
Is there anything i can check, also when i restore to an early date it works,but i get all my browser set up all screwed,internet explorer 8 won't let me install Google chrome, so i have to revert to this restore point which is working great, thanks.

i just solved the issue by entering , Internet Protocol TCP-IP-Properties , and ticked box,

Changed to; Obtain an IP address Automatically, Obtain DNS Server address Automatically.

What happened was when i tried to flash DD-WRT with TFTP, i went in TCP-IP and changed IP address to run TFTP, and did not change it back.
