Ok, it is good that you replaced vista with XP. First try connecting the computer to your router through a Ethernet cable and creating the network. Then, if nothing works, get a live cd of Ubuntu Linux and set up a wireless network from there. It is easy and all of the drivers are included in the live cd. When you are setting up the network YOU MUST CONNECT THE COMPUTER TO THE ROUTER THROUGH A ETHERNET CABLE! So try all of the things I recommended and if none of them work, PM me
