Re: Ethernet Adapter Question?.
No, it's strictly an Ehernet adapter with no wireless capabilities.
In order to go wireless, you would need for your modem/router to support wifi, then you would need a wifi adapter for your XP box. I don't know if anyone manufactures a wifi adapter that's XP compatible any longer but you can look into it. Lastly, depending upon the distance your box is from the wifi hotspot, you may not be happy with the performance.
