Question about Acer (BCM94318MPG) Wireless Adapter
Please help me..after finished driver installation..the device cannot start..why..how to get the solution for this problem..
The main problem with installing Windows XP on an Acer 4310 notebook always comes back to the wireless lan. You will oftentimes see an error code 39, and be told that the driver is corrupt or missing. The problem with the wifi card seems to be specific to the broadcom 802.11b/g adapter. This same chipset would appear to be the basis for the 802.11g. Here lies the problem: you can't use a 802.11b or 802.11g driver. When you try to do so, you get the code 39 error.
With that in mind, I'm going to put up a brief but detailed tutorial that describes how to correct the problem and get your Acer notebook up and running. This is the method I followed when working on my wife's 4310, and it works every time. Keep in mind, however, that I am going to approach this from a fresh build perspective with a slicked hard drive, with the OS being Windows XP SP3. I would recommend that you slick your hard drive and do a fresh install to avoid in conflicts. Also note that in the relevant step I'm going to throw an idea out there for all of the dual-booters out there who have a Linux distro and need to run nds-wrapper or have no connectivity at all. I'm not sure if this works because I haven't tested it. So if it does work then that's great for everyone. Just make sure you put something in the appropriate forums for others.
Now! To get your Acer 4310 Aspire Notebook up and running with Windows XP SP3 installed do the following:
Second, those Linux folk who are having connectivity problems with this adapter should see if there is a similar multiband driver available. That should cure the problem--again, I'm not sure because I haven't done that. But it should.
