Since I have installed sp3 for windows xp, I get two messages about wlanapi.dll missing flies:
The following is what I've found on the Microsoft web site:
Windows XP SP3 introduit un nouveau fichier .dll nommé Wlanapi.dll. Ce fichier est installé dans le dossier %WINDIR%\System32. Certaines installations de pilote de périphérique de cartes réseau sans fil tierces installent également un fichier Wlanapi.dll dans le dossier %WINDIR%\System32. Si un tel fichier est installé dans ce dossier avant l'installation de Windows XP SP3, le fichier Wlanapi.dll qui est associé à la carte réseau est remplacé par celui de l'installation de Windows XP SP3.
Ce problème se produit également lorsque le même pilote de périphérique d'une carte réseau sans fil tierce est installé après l'installation de Windows XP SP3.
La variable d'environnement %WINDIR% correspond généralement à C:\Windows.
RésolutionPour résoudre ce problème, vérifiez sur le site Web du fabricant de la carte réseau sans fil si des pilotes de périphériques plus récents sont disponibles pour un système Windows XP SP3. Ensuite, téléchargez et installez les pilotes de périphériques les plus récents pour la carte réseau sans fil.
In regard to the above message, could you please let me know which, where and how I can install de missing files.
Thanks in firstname.lastname@example.org (Switzerland, Geneva)

Check your floppy and optical (CD/DVD/BD) drives for media and disconnect any external drives. Often times, the "NTLDR is Missing" error will appear if your PC is trying to boot to a non-bootable floppy disk, CD/DVD/BD, or external hard drive or flash drive.
Note: If you find that this is the cause of your problem and it's happening a lot, you might want to consider changing the boot order in BIOS so the hard drive with Windows installed is listed first.
Check the hard drive and other drive settings in BIOS and ensure they are correct. The BIOS configuration tells the computer how to use a drive so incorrect settings can cause problems, including NTLDR errors.
Note: There is usually an Auto setting for hard drive and optical drive configurations in BIOS which is usually a safe bet if you're not sure what to do.
Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch. While this will almost certainly resolve any NTLDR errors, it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.
If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, understand that you will
I see you re-installed Windows on the machine with Win XP Pro 64bit but you are having issue with the driver as mentioned.
If I may ask before you installed win XP 64bit did you have win XP 32bit?
If so then try downloading a driver for a 64bit version to make the Modem driver work, having an Incorrect version of the driver will really not show up in device manager, and make sure the driver you are downloading is the correct driver.
You did not mentioned the Brand of the Machine or Motherboard that you have and the modem that you need a driver for is that a built in Modem on the Motherboard or is that a modem external provided by your Internet Provider.

How to Fix Libexpat.dll ErrorsImportant: Do not download libexpat.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of libexpat.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.
Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the libexpat.dll error.
Restore libexpat.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" libexpat.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.
If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted libexpat.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover libexpat.dll with a free file recovery program. Important: Recovering a deleted copy of libexpat.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system. Some libexpat.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the libexpat.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.
Use System Restore to undo recent system changes. If you suspect that the libexpat.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.
Reinstall the program that uses the libexpat.dll file. If the libexpat.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file. Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the libexpat.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.
Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to libexpat.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file libexpat.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card. Note: The libexpat.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
Roll back a driver to a previously installed version if libexpat.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.
Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the libexpat.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
Install any available Windows updates. Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The libexpat.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
Test your memory and then test your hard drive. I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause libexpat.dll errors as they fail.
If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.
Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual libexpat.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
Use a free registry cleaner to repair libexpat.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid libexpat.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error. Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
Perform a clean installation of Windows. A clean install of Windows will erase everything from the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the libexpat.dll error, this should be your next course of action. Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the libexpat.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.
Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any libexpat.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.

The network adapter driver in your computer (not the router) has to be installed. If you've replaced the Operating system to XP, it is likely missing the driver. Suggest go to another computer that is connected to the Internet and download the driver to a flash drive - you must go to the manufacturer of the computer's website to get it. Then transfer the file on the flash drive to the computer missing the driver and install it.
