please make sure that you are using the latest version of the Windows XP 
available for your wireless card.

If you require more assistance, please send at support at linuxant.com the 
output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp 
('driverloaderdiag.txt'). It'll help us solve the problem.
