One thing you could do is plug your computer into ethernet. That way you wont need the wireless to get on the internet. Next is to update the drivers for your wireless. I'm assuming you deleted the drivers and that's why it's not working.

Havent used XP in years so I cant tell you how to get there, but you need to find "Device Manager" and click on "Network adapters" and right click it to update or install drivers. Something along those lines.
