DriverLoader detects that only WEP64 is supported by the Windows XP driver. 
This is a known problem with the 5.0.20 Windows XP driver for the TI ACX 111 
chipset and we are currently working on this problem.

In the meantime, download the following Windows XP driver :


Before you upload the Windows XP driver to the Web Configurator, please run 
the following commands in a root shell :

rm -fr /etc/driverloader/config
mkdir -p /etc/driverloader/config
rm -fr /var/lib/driverloader
mkdir -p /var/lib/driverloader

You will also have to modify the .INF file before you upload it. Please change 
this line :

%USR11G.DeviceDesc% = USR11G.8400, PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_9066&SUBSYS_16EC010D


%USR11G.DeviceDesc% = USR11G.8400, PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_9066
