I have a GPO for wireless and it gets applied to the local computer but when I open Rsop.msc it says that it got applied but when I look at the setting in Rsop.msc on the local computer it is empty. Any information I can get on this would be great.

I think we're more interested to see which policy settings are being modified. You can export in html and modify the file to remove information you don't want to share. You can also let us see the gpresult or rsop results (again removing any specific info you don't want to share).

Without more information I don't know if I can help. If gpresult is showing the GPO is being applied than I'm not sure what it is.  It doesn't sound like a replication problem but you can use GPOTool to check replication status. Are the settings being applied computer or user settings (if user than possibly a permission problem)? I assume you've already forced the updates or restarted the laptop, correct?

I know you wouldn't be able to see the settings in a locally viewed GPO without having the DLLs copied and registered on the XP box. Maybe this is affecting the output of the RSOP report as well. Try copying the following files from %systemroot%\system32 of the server to the XP box:

wlsnp.dll
wlstore.dll
ws03res.dll

and then register wlsnp.dll from the run line or command prompt.
