From another computer go to the manufacturer website, select support or downloads, enter your model and serial if needed, download your drivers that you need, if you don't see the driver you can chat live or leave a message.
Save the drivers to a flash drive if you have one, install on your laptop and you should be good to go.

You could, drivers are based on manufacture. Like Realtek is a common maker of audio chips, and sometimes distributors use a popular motherboard. You may have plateaued at Vista, by try the Troubleshooting Compatibility with Vista 64 drivers before you roll it back.

Now, the reason most times for that is that you may have put the wrong drivers in initially, but then weren't completely removed, so the next time you used different drivers, they didn't completely work properly.
Restart the computer.
Go back to the Sony website, and download the drivers needed for your wireless card. And try installing it again.
I would suggest altogether to delete the WinXP partition and instead install Windows 7. I say that because windows 7 has many of the baseline drivers and for most computers of 1.5 years+ you don't have to install many drivers for them at all; they all come built in.
Plug in an ethernet cable into your ethernet card port on the left hand side of your laptop. When it connects to the internet click on the Windows update icon in the system tray. It should show you a Realtek Wireless RTL8187b wireless adapter driver update. Install it, you may need to reboot, but in any case you will have wireless networks available to you and you can pull out the ethernet cable. Good luck.
