As with Bob75, I'd suggest a conflict between Windows and the Wireless Card software.
I had exactly the same problem using a D-Link adapter - the D-Link software had taken over the management of the connection.
I solved it by uninstalling the D-Link software, and using Windows to manage the connection. I also used IP Adress reservation on my router to assign a particular IP address to the MAC address of the Wireless card.
Well it worked for me, so hopefully it may help you too.

Fixed the problem at last!
I took the wireless card out , restarted XP without it, then shut down and put it into another slot.
Now it boots much faster and wireless is available instantly.
thanks all for your help
