  • We had a Belkin Wireless Adapter and running the WinXP installer fails. Belkin suggested to our IT engineer to not use the installer and instead copy the XP drivers to the system install them manually. That worked.

  • If they work or have drivers for Windows XP Pro, they will work with WES/XPe. Just create a device driver component and add all the wireless networking support components.

  • I was hoping to find a device that I can directly install and use on my already built image. We had success with the Sierra Wireless Broadband AirCard and its installer, and was hoping there's a USB Wireless LAN adapter that would install directly.  Thanks.
