Hi,

can someone help me to configure or build a driver for a WiFi card on XPE?

Where I can get a step-to-step guide to install the driver and configure the
I.P.?

Thanks,

sXo,

You will need to start with making a component out of the driver:

Wireless configuration: (make sure to add "Wireless Zero Configuration",
"Primitive: Wzcsvc", and "Network Provisioning Service" components)

To automatically setup wireless configuration you can create a profile with
new SP2 WPS API:

Some general network setup on XPe (including static IP and etc):

And don't forget about configuring firewall on SP2:

Hope this helps,
