zv5000 Not sensing any wireless networks

Hi,

I have an old Pavilion laptop, zv5000, running XP. 

At my previous place,  I had wired internet and it worked fine.  Now at my new place, I have only wireless, and when I try to connect to a wireless network in that box, I get "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection" and it can't even find any networks.  If I go to Network Connections under Control Panel, there's a connection called "Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN" -- is that my modem? -- that says Not Connected (obviously), but under Properties it says the device is working properly. 

I was told it may be because I need to install some sort of (newer?) drivers for the modem, is that right?  Any suggestions on what to install? 

Many thanks,

nschemm
