Check the asus site for windows 7 drivers for that adapter. If there aren't any, check the XP installation you have, it should give you more details on the model number and actual manufacturer (Asus doesn't really make any Wireless NIC's, but they may re-lable them from other manufacturers), then when you know the chip being used you can check the manufacturer's site for drivers. Maybe you can also take the adapter out of the PC and read any markings on it to get more details.

Then check in your XP PC what driver it installs for the stick. You can probably also get more details using SIW after it is running in XP:
