Question about Acer (D10709-002) (D10709002) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Broadcom 802.11g/b acer3680 vista home basic

Wireless connection always a problem and runs slow. my two other dell notebooks running xp and xp pro connect instantly and run fast. thought it was due to older netgear modem. replaced with netgear's latest 802.11g/b. no change

    Per your suggestion I checked speeds on both machines using speakeasy.



    Acer 3680-2682 Vista home basic Broadcom 802.11g/b 54Mbps up 215 down 321



    Dell Inspiron 6000 Windows XP Intel Pro Wireless 2200b/g 54Mbps up 1318 down 327



    Wireless router is latest version (vista approved) Netgear 54 Mbps b/g.



    I also tested the Acer 3680-2682 hard wired to the router with following: up 1325 down 325



    What do you make of this??

You can test the connection speed to the internet between the vista and xp by going to a site the has a broadband speed tester for free......ie......


http://www.consumerspeedtest.org.nz/

Heres one good link I use all the time when I test any machines speed on the connections
I have seen good speeds from vista but lots of issues along the way tho.......

another thing is what speed is your wireless card,
54Mbps is normal or 1 gbps is high speed with the right cards installed..........

Please let me have some feed back on your dicoverys thanks

Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection code 10


Hi,
Code 10 usually means the device driver is not compatible, outdated or corrupt.

Try uninstalling the wireless device again and then reinstall using the latest driver available from:

NB If you're running XP, use the second one.

Hope this helps

Well, I did the same thing, replaced vista with XP Pro, and couldnt get the wireless to work (the xp runs incredibly faster on this machine, B.T.W).
After days and days of trying to figure out this same problem, I finally found the driver. I found it at gateway...the link is here... http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?param=Wireless_Broadcom_4312_v4.170.25.12_XPx86&st=kw
Hope this helps all of you who did the same!
