Is this a laptop or desktop? I would physically look for the model # and make of the wifi card and see if the manufacturer made an xp driver for it.
If not, maybe get a different wifi card as they are fairly cheap.

Just curious...why is the path...going backwards?

Why go from Win 7 to XP...on a system designed for Win 7?

Just curious :).

I'm curious about that too.:blink:

In any case, I'm assuming you have typed the following into Google:

<wireless card make and model> windows xp driver

As my six year old told me, "Daddy, Google is a cool program!"
