we can see the following line in your 'dmesg' :

driverloader: stack=8192/88/0 REGPARM

it means that the DriverLoader module was correctly compiled and 
inserted into the kernel. However, it seems that the DriverLoader module 
does not attempt to load a Windows XP driver.

Please make sure that you have uploaded the right Windows XP driver to 
the Web Configurator at The right Windows XP 
driver for your wireless card is probably :


Under Linux, you can use the 'unzip' command on the .EXE file to extract 
the Windows driver. The required .INF file will be named 
'AR/bcmwl5a.inf' inside the .EXE file.

If you require more assistance, while the Windows XP driver is 
installed, 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.
