windows networking in openstack

Hello All,
I am currently running openstack under the 3-node architecture.
I have created base images for ubuntu and windows XP/7.
When an ubuntu instance is launched I have no issues connecting to the internet whatsoever. However; when I utilize any Windows instance of any architecture the internet cannot connect to sites in a web browser. I am able to ping any sites with name resolution working fine, I am also able to connect to instances on the same network just fine. When diagnosed, no results are found in windows 7, however; the windows xp instances claim that the system cannot connect to sites using HTTP/HTTPS/SSL/FTP/SFTP and I should contact the network administrator. I have never witnessed this message in XP and I am unfamiliar what could be causing this. What is causing it may also be the same root cause for all windows instances being incapable of connecting to sites.
The VIRTIO drivers seem to be installed perfectly fine and I am able to ping. When attempting to connect it will load extremely slowly until it inevitably reaches the "cannot load web page" screen.

Is there anyone that may have an idea about this, I am at a loss. I have examined ping and other packet statistics and all routing seems to work fine, could it be a latency issue? Are there any settings I need to adjust for the network cards on the images other than cloudbase-init, for linux instances as well?
