support.dell.com  Simply go to drivers and downloads and enter yoru service tag. You should be able to find the driver in a list here.

You can check under the laptop to see the type of card be it intel or broadcom ... The drivers will be listed on the site.

If you're not sure try them all :)

If you allready did this and its not working . try re seating the wireless card. I believe its located at the bottom of the laptop. Take it out  reboot the pc , shut down , put it back in. ( make sure the pc is off when you're removing it. Be sure you touch a piece of metal to discharge yourself before touching internal components

As that laptop was delivered with different types of adapters, it would be easiest to take it out of the laptop so you can read it's markings. That should help you get the proper driver. Or if you still have the Windows 7 installation, check all it's device properties, it should show you which adapter it is.

Apart from that, why are you downgrading to a soon obsolete OS?

sincd Dell did not post drivers for XP, you can try this to identify the devices :

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:   http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here

If your LAN is running, you can also use windows update, or drivereasy (free) :  www.drivereasy.com
it will list the drivers - you can google them, or let drivereasy do it

If you foud out what type of WLAN card sits in your laptop, often you can download a driver from the Dell site from a bussiness type of laptop with a similar WLAN card. Fore instance the Dell Inspiron 8600 had similar hardware as the Latitude D800.

It worked by finding the correct HW by physical inspection  and downloading the drivers for it.
rindi should be awarded points for suggesting looking at the actual card
