Default Windows XP pro wifi help

I have partitioned my 250 GB hard drive to dual boot Windows XP Pro, and Ubuntu. I have Ubuntu working fine, but On windows XP, I cant get my wifi working. Even directly connecting it to my router doesn't help. I've looke it up online but I can't figure it out. Any help?

I tried that, I figured it would work cause Ubuntu did, but it doesn't work.

Check the device manager to make sure there are no driver issues with any of your hardware. Also did you change any IP information prior to having this problem just to be safe make sure they are all set to default.

Have you installed the drivers for your wifi card?

And correct drivers? I had a hell of a time getting my wireless card to work in xp x64 (after sawping out to my parents' older one with a realtek chip). I just had to install the driver with the utility, not the standalone one, even though I didn't even use their provided wireless connection utility.

Is this a prebuilt computer or a custom built?
