It may not be a problem on you windows xp, but a problem on the channel on the access point. just change the channel on the access point, or the name of the network that you may be seeing there is just a profile saved by windows xp.

How can i set up a connection to a network with windows vista basic


There are several ways to do this you can use a router, wireless router or set up a direct connection. With a router all you have to do is connect your modem to the router and computers to the router. For a wireless connection you need a wireless card installed in your computer and a wireless router. You connect your modem to your router and set up your wireless connection with the software that came with your card or through windows wireless service. You can also connect two computers through their ethernet port with an ethernet cord. You plug coonect them with the cord go into control panel open network connections and to the left chose set up home or small office network. You will need to configure the computer with internet access as the host and the other as a guest. You can share any type of connection such as dial up, cable, dsl, and broadband.

Cannot get internet connection


You probably have to buy a wireless card and and install it in your computer...there wasn't much in the way of home wireless back in 2002.
Go to your device manager and look at the network adapters and see if you have a wireless adapter installed on your system. If not, you will have to put a wireless pci card in and install it and then you will be able to configure your computer to connect to your router with a wireless connection.
