I am also having the same problem with my Sony Vaio VGN-CS21GN Laptop. WiFi was working perfectly in Vista but when I downgraded it to Windows-XP it started giving me errors that "Driver Not Found for the Device" I have downloaded all the drivers available on internet but nothing worked.
Finally after 8 months of research on this problem, I came to know that there is a bug in the supplied Windows XP-SP3 Operating System. There is a file in Service Pack 3 that doesn't allow drivers to access the hardware of WiFi.
The Solution is you will have to forget the bundled windows XP and upgrade your operating System. Right now better option is to go for windows 7. It dint even asked for any kind of drivers to load. WiFi is also working perfectly on it. The laptop has become more faster & smoother than in windows XP.
For more queries, you can write to me on email@example.com

Having gone so far, I think the next thing you should do now is to get to the wireless properties and then assign an IP Address, Subnet mask and the Default Gateway for the Internet and you will be amazed to be connected. If you have not disabled and enabled the wireless device you may do that before proceeding to the step above. The pc should be restarted after the exercise ok. Good luck
Dynex Wireless-G Desktop Adapter is making my Win XP freeze within seconds after logging in. I've tried uninstalling, installing about 5 times. I'm doing everything by the install directions, nothing seems to help. It's a Compaq Presario Desktop.
Most laptops have a wireless card built in them and if you have one you should try using that instead and form past experiences USB adapters don't generally work on laptops in which case if you laptop has the slot for it you should buy a card like this http://www.netgear.com/Products/Adapters/SuperGWirelessAdapters/WG511T.aspx
If you have the restore cds for windows xp home, the drivers from that will still work in windows xp pro. There should be a separate cd for drivers. Try that first. You can also try Windows update, sometimes it will find drivers.
Hello: What I would say is: go to microsoft update and make sure you have all the updates for your OS.
Then; read the posting (below) from someone who had the same issue:

We cannot - even ping - the network addresses after installing - so it was an uninstall and do a system restore to get to the original good working state of the clients.
Microsoft needs to come up with a patch to fix this as we are seeing more and more networked clients having these connection and sharing problems."
Do you understand the above?
Let me know if you do not know how to unistall SP3 and do a Restore...
Remove the card and install in a different pci slot,it may be a problem with the way windows is giving the pci slot the startup request.
Just also double check that the correct driver is being recognised and not a windows generic driver.
Look in device manager on hardware tab and see if there is a 'x' or an exclamation mark (!) against the wireless card.
