Acer Aspire 3690 LAN/Network issues

I recently upgraded my computer from Vista to XP Pro, and in the
process of formatting the C: drive, lost a lot of information about
hardware. I now have a wireless adapter which works, but I can't
get a LAN connection to. Any advise?

    I ended up (with my wireless connection - no need to go to the library for me) downloading the broadcom suite. It worked for both my wireless and LAN adapters, and while it has some incompatibilities (If I want to "search for wireless networks in range" using windows, I have to enable that every time) but other than that it's fine. There are still a lot of unfinished things but it works for the most part.

The driver file formats are not excuteable thats why you cannot open files to install lan drivers. its so funny the way broadcom done it.

3. go to your machine and install drivers from thumb drive
4. Configure your machine

I emailed acer--was told to get drivers from maker of device.

Posted on Oct 25, 2007

You will need to reinstall the LAN driver. Go to Start >Control Panel > System >Hardware >Device Manager and select the LAN network card to reinstall the driver with. If you don't have the disk, then use the wireless connection to access the internet and search for the driver to download.

Assuming that the LAN cable connection and Broadcom drivers were all valid and working. Then perhaps the wrong firewall setting may have caused the connection to fail.
I experienced the same problem where the wireless worked fine while the LAN did not. Through trial and error in searching and changing various network settings, I came across the Computer Associate firewall software package had the Broadcom 440x bit assigned to 'Restricted', comparing to the 802.11g where its at 'Safe'. Thus blocking the LAN while allowing the wireless access to the internet. This may also be applicable to other firewall software packages.
If you have the same CA firewall, then just step through the following to see if that would do the trick:
Access CA Personal Firewall => Firewall (button on the left) => Zones tab => Zone Assignment
Then find the 440x and right click to change its assignment from 'Restricted' to 'Safe' to restore LAN access.
If you have the same CA firewall, then just step through the following to see if that will fix the trouble:
Access CA Personal Firewall => Firewall (button on the left) => Zones tab => Zone Assignment
Then find the 440x and right click to change its assignment from 'Restricted' to 'Safe' to restore LAN access.

That sort of comes with a OS upgrade, in upgrades from XP to Win 7, I'm supprised that's the only thing that is a issue. I upgraded a old gateway (2005) from XP to Win 7 Pro N 64bit. and had some hardware issues to deal with. Consider yourself lucky. You can get use to it or search endlessly for a fix. Try the Acer forums, you may run across the issue.

Acer Aspire 3690 laptop network problem


There are multiple LAN drivers available for that model from Acer. Make sure you download all of them for the specific OS and try each one. I note that the only operating systems they have drivers for are Windows XP 32bit, XP MCE 32bit and Vista 32bit. Make sure to also download and install the chipset driver.

Reformatting hard drive


there is not 2 drives on your laptop. The single drive is partitioned into 2 parts.
When you re-install XP, be sure to re-install on the first partition (it will ask you during the setup). If you re-format the entire drive all will be lost.

Wireless LAN problem


Make sure that the built-in wireless lan is disabled. If your pc is XP or vista, uninstall the new WIRELESS LAN(go to control panet, add/remove programs), select the Atheros Software. Leave the WIRELESS ADAPTER connected to your pc. Insert the disc, do not run the set up. RESTART THE PC. The drivers for the WIRELESS ADAPTER should install, if not load drivers manually.
MAKE SURE WIRELESS ZERO CONFIGURATION for XP is running. You should be able to detect wireless networks.
