XP Dualboot internet issue

Hey everybody,

Since a day or 2 I have dual boot system. It works fine the only problem is that XP Doesn't have a WiFi option. When I check another PC also with XP, there is a little computer image in the taskbar. When I click i get to see all the available WiFi connections. In windows 7 I do have it but in XP I don't.

When I check my network connections I also don't see a WiFi option. I only see a LAN Connection. I tried to install a wireless connection but when I press finish it says it can't open a certain file.

Anybody knows how to fix this?
Greetings,

We need your system spec or model to obtain your drivers.
Thats what i think your missing,the drivers.

You can fill out your PC spec in control panel

If you type system information into the searchbar and click it you should see a new window.
If you can copy system manufactor and model from there it'll be more of a help

I tried System information then it opened a map but nothing happened.
Then I did this: %windir%\system32\msinfo32.exe
But windows couldn't find it. I tried it on windows seven that did work but not on XP

EDIT: Nevermind found a solution now booting up W7 will post it soon
