Need to replace/upgrade my Intel (R) Pro/Wireless 2200BG

Recently had to replace my wireless router. I have laptops, one running windows 7, two running windows and two running windows xp. The oldest machine, a Compaq Presario V4000 running xp wireless connection keeps cutting in and out. More out then in. The other xp machine runs fine. Tried updating drivers did not work. Is there a different network adapter that I can download and install that will work with xp and the new router? Is this the right place to look or should I be looking somewhere else? Thanks
