Service Pack 2 overhauled the entire wireless aspect of Windows XP to a point where its far better to use than it ever was before.
Service Pack 3 superseded Service Pack 2 but includes all of its functionality so that'll be better to go for. It also adds support for more wireless technologies and encryption support that wasn't available at the time of SP1.
