First, go to Windows security settings. I recently had a client with this exact problem, and it was her Windows firewall blocking the wireless adapter from "seeing" anything. If necessary, turn the firewall completely off to test.

Secondly, if that doesn't fix it, remove/uninstall the Wireless adapter completely from device manager. Reboot, let Windows attempt to reinstall the driver. If asked, point it to the driver files you've already installed. Reboot, and that should fix you up.

Let me know if this helps :)

I can't get the network controller drivers to install correctly. I have installed the drivers for my acer aspire 5742g. The FN+F3 can't activate the wireless as a result


Have you installed the correct driver? The 5742G could be installed with an Atheros or a Broadcom wireless card, and these use different drivers.

You can either visually check which make of card is installed in your laptop, or try both drivers and see if either one works.

The following links will initiate a download:

Atheros:

Broadcom:

Failing that, perhaps your wireless card has physically failed in some way and needs replacing.

NO GETTING WLAN DRIVER FOR MY ACER ASPIRIE 5500Z LAPTOP FOR WINDOWS VISTA .


Hi,

Depending on the wlan model, you need one of these drivers

Ambit
Atheros
Broadcom
Intel

As this is an older model, the drivers may not be compatible to Vista.
If none of them are working, either try to install Windows 7 (with 7 i had the WLAN already installed with windows on a travelmate 5520) or revert to windows XP, for which one of the drivers I gave you works for sure.
