For example, is something like wget available in Windows XP?

There are countless Internet tools for DOS, but your question is very unclear. You ask about browsing the Internet (which implies a web browser), then you talk about wget, which is incapable of browsing. Please clarify your question as to exactly which types of tools you want for DOS. – Flimzy Jun 24 '11 at 4:58
you still haven't upgraded from DOS ;)? – user70365 Jun 24 '11 at 5:15
I really don't understand why people downvote, why people downvote a question like this one. – Radek Jun 24 '11 at 5:32
@ doob, i just want to know about it. Though i'm planning to upgrade to Windows 3.2 :P – Sourav Jun 24 '11 at 6:44

If you want a built in solution, use

telnet 80

and type in raw HTTP commands.

If you need a browser, then maybe you can use cygwin and a text mode browser like lynx (there's a site dedicated to a windows port).

If you need a real DOS Browser (16-Bit), there may be some as well, haven't looked.

i tried these but it did not worked [does not show any content] – Sourav Jun 24 '11 at 6:40

if its dos proper (windows command line is NOT called dos - its the cmd shell), you can use Arachnae, else emgee's suggestion of lynx sounds like a good bet.

if you want pure dos version

Do you mean you want a win32 compatible text-based browser?

You can try a win32 version of Lynx ->
