    Incase anyone else is having this problem or in the dire situation that amyky hasn't solved it yet:

    I managed to get the drivers for this card for XP via PC Specialist at

    These worked fine for me but I did have to change control over to Windows first. Follow the instructions on installing first. I completely removed everything and then rebooted and then installed the new drivers. Right click on the icon at the bottom right of your status bar and select 'View Available Networks'. Here you need to follow the instructions to allow windows to manage the card and hey presto!

    Of course you do need to ensure that Wireless Lan is enabled.
    To do this press the Fn and F2 keys together. If you are using Bluetooth you will need the selection for Bluetooth AND Wireless Lan to be enabled.

    Hope this helps a few people.
