Yes, ditch the wireless router and get a proper ones with leads.

In my experience 'wireless' anything is more trouble than it's worth.

It might be a conflict between the XP and the Norton Firewalls. Have you tried turning one or the other off and then running update again?

Did you try to flush the Host file as the cure says on microsoft site?.

I can connect to the microsft pages apart from the update page though ,and it is a genuine copy

cured a few problems such as yours recently
Stop the XP firewall then try this:-

Restoring the default firewall rules in Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall
