    wlan i need brand if have u tried the intel link if its not working which i gave u earlier then i need brand of ur WLAN card may be see the bottom u will get a tip

    check the code in bottom of the notebook if it is written like this Intel 2200 BG or 3945 ABG or 4965 ABG u can go to this link and download and install wlan driver from intel

    ethernet controller and network controller are same

    if ur hardware is Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet normally it is
    then go to and identify first which device u have

    http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet...

    and if ur device is identified then downlaod and install the appropriate driver for that

    or ur lan card may be from Realtek then u can go and try this

Internet connection problem


If you reinstall windows using System Recovery Disk then you do not need to worry about anything, it will
bring your computer back to the factory settings. However, if you use Windows DVD to reinstall the system then you need to install all the drivers manually.
If your drivers are missing then download it form your manufacturers website.

If you are using win XP

Problem with wifi driver for acer aspire 4715z


This is very common problem for the new computers, they can not be retro-fitted to XP for the drivers were not designed for XP, only vista.

I would strongly suggest putting the computer back to Vista, and then the hardware that was installed on that computer will work its best. Since Service Pack 1 has been released for Vista most of Vista's 1st problems have been solved.
