I have a really old card, a D-Link DWL AB520(ancient, I know, but it's all I've got on me right now.)

I have to drivers for it, but they won't work for Windows XP 64 bit. I tried using Google to find drivers for XP 64, but I couldn't locate any.

Does anyone know of any anywhere? Thank you in advance.

See if you can figure what chipset it uses via Google -- most adapters use one of a small range of chipset suppliers -- there may be an original driver for that chipset which works with your adapter (though with XP64 your chances are slimmer).

Frankly, I'm seeing current model but used wireless adapters for the less than the price of a Starbucks coffee (okay, cheaper than that) because everyone is buying laptops with wireless onboard. Have a sniff around dealers' bargain baskets and garage sales/flea markets.

I found out the chipset--an Atheros--but I tried a couple different generic drivers and they just froze my computer.

I'll check out those new ones then. Thank you.
