Confused WLAN PRISM driver?? Not working:S??

Alright Guys just a quick question about my Wireless card,

The PC i have is a Box Advent T9 From about 2006, Ya see it came with a PRISM WLAN card built in, But when i put the computer in to storage i lend it to a family member which they then mess about and bust it, Drives needed formatting and so on, Got my Original XP HEsp3 installed all the drivers installed, Now my problem is that the Wireless lan card will not pick up my VM SuperHub, Not at all, I am having to use a Netgear dongle?, Any one have any ideas they could help ??.. thank you in advance.

FWIW, there are miniPCI WLAN cards that are used in older laptops. The Wi-Fi radio could be on such a card or on the main board. Windows may need a "chipset driver" which is actually just an .inf file, to be able to map PCI and other devices properly.

Because the Advanced Graphics Port is used only for graphics, it's neither here nor there in this case.
