Hello and welcome to the forum!

The drivers need to be reinstalled.
Whats the make/model of the system?

Also whats the model of the SMC wireless card?
It should be printed on the device somewhere

In the beginning there was the command line.

Is the computer a tower or laptop?

Please look on the front or side and see if it says Dell, HP, Compaq or anything that identifies the manufacturer.
Then look of a model number on a sticker somewhere. If the system is a laptop the sticker is on the bottom.

We need this information to get you the correct drivers for your system

Here is a link for your drivers. Install the chipset first then video, audio, LAN,and USB 2.o controller. Install the chipset first then the order of the rest really doesnt matter.

For the wireless adapter please check for a model number on it. It should start SMC followed by more letters.
Its printed on there somewhere but it might be pretty small.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Great! Thanks
Here they are but I would do them last.
Disconnect the device from the system while you install all the rest then get the driver from the SMC site.
Dont plug the adapter into the system untill the installer prompts you to.

Any problems let us all know!

What happens when you try to install the chipset drivers?
That is the one you want to do first.

It appears that the files are in self extractin an executable format.
SHould be a simple matter of double clicking on them to get them to install

When you wiped your computer initially.
How did you go about doing that?

What steps did you take?

Did you delete the partition and recreate it as part of the installation process?
Then format the drive?

Did you boot to a genuine XP cd to do this?

Sound to me like there are remnants of a previous install on the drive
