Wi Fi driver downloading

My brother's notebook has got malfunctioning wireless connection driver. I am advised to download the driver from manufacturer's site. However, that affected notebook of my brother does not connect to internet as Wi Fi failed to function. I have my own but I use Win Vista OS while the effected computer uses Win XP. Plus mine is HP Compaq while his is Gateway. Can I download the driver with my computer (to HDD or flashh drive) and transfer it to the affected computer safely?

Yes that should work fine, just as long as you download the driver for his card and his OS.

Lost wi fi connection to our wireless network, tablet displays "turning off" under the wi fi settings.


I suggest to reinstall the wireless card driver first ..just in case, this will solve any driver issues and will make it functional in case the driver or the setting are corrupted..
To download the driver in case you do not have it on disk or saved somewhere ..just go to acer.com ...select downloads ...drivers and select the model and operation system you use..
download the wifi driver ..run it again ..and after that restart ..and try to make the connection again ...Check the wireless card in device manager to see if it shows in order ...and did not appear in yellow which indicates driver related issues..
also be sure you have network signal ..and the router is functional ..in case other computer is working with this network ..check to see if the connection actually works ..
To redo the connection ..just open the settings for wireless...and click scan for networks ...In the list of available connections ..select yours..and click connect ..insert password if needed.
Good luck !
