Windows applications can't access internet but Firefox can

Hi all, hoping to get some help with this issue as I've been searching all over and still haven't come to a solution.

I dug out an old laptop running Windows XP SP3 with IE6. It connects to the wireless internet fine and I can't browse freely when using Firefox. But when I try and access anything using IE6 or any other windows app the internet does not work. Ultimately I'm trying to get Windows media player to automatically grab CD track names from the internet (since the laptop is being used solely to burn CDs and sync with iPhone), and from what I understand Windows media player can't connect to the internet the same way that IE6 can't.

I've tried resetting Internet Options to default, turning off automatic LAN settings but no luck

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
