I just put a dual boot of XP my on machine that came with vista preinstalled.
The machine is in my room and connects to the router with a wireless card.
In Vista in device manager it reads as Broadcom 802.11g Netwrok Adtapter.
I tryed to download XP drivers for Broadcom 802.11g Netwrok Adtapter but they dont seem to be working.
Any help on would be great.

Dell XPS 420
*EDIT* I got it, i ended up draging my PC into the other room and pluging an ethernet cord in it and did a windows update, in XP its labed as a ASUS 802.11g Network Adapter, wierd since Vista said it was a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter.

I checked it out, Dell XPS 420 only provided Vista drivers and found ASUS Asus Wireless LAN PCI Adapter (Full Height) use Broadcom chipset accorded to the description.
That explained it.
