I suggest opening Device Manager and checking to see if you are missing any drivers. You can do this by opening the Start Menu and selecting Control Panel. Then select System. Click the Hardware Tab and then click the button for Device Manager. Then look in the right pane of the window for any yellow icons under Networking adapters. If you have a yellow icon over one, type the Make, Model no for your system into google followed by the word (driver) and you will find links that say drivers for XP. Go to them and download your drivers.

SOURCE: WLAN not working after installing windows xp

Hello,

Okay...First I must assume that you installed with just an OEM (out of box) version of XP. Let's check something real quick. Open up the Start Menu and look for the My Computer Icon. Right click the My Computer icon and from the menu select Manage. It should be the fourth option down on that menu. A window titled Computer Management will open. In the left side of this window you should see a computer icon with the words Device Manager to the right of it. Left click this icon. On the right side/pane of the window you should see a large list of various things such as Disk Drives, Display adapters, so on. Look for any of them that have a yellow icon on them that resembles a yield sign. This is going on the assumption that you need a driver for your wireless card. I would guess that the driver you need is going to come from Intel.com. Let me know if that does not solve it.

Do you have two laptops, one with Vista and one with XP?
Can the XP laptop detect the wireless router?
If so check the wireless card settings on the Vista laptop (ie the SSID and the encryption setting) and configure the same settings on the wireless card on the XP laptop.

Acer aspire 5310 Wireless LAN indicator light on windows 7


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.

R193564 driver is not working..


I am glad to HELP YOU!

The driver you are talking about is a WLAN driver [wireless] for Windows XP. It was built to recognize and to be installed UNDER WINDOWS XP ONLY!
So:
1. if you are trying to install it under a different operating system [Vista or Windows 7] won't work;
2. if you have a machine running Windows XP and the driver itself is corrupted you can get it from HERE.

GOOD LUCK!

I would suggest you reinstall using Windows XP because based on your pc specs, your computer will run faster on XP. You may also try Windows 7 because it doesn't require you to install specific drivers. It comes automatically installed when you install the OS.

WLAN problem


Hi,
Yes this is an OS problem. Mostly laptop vendors like ACER expects that the OS is Vista or Windows 7.

And these OS have default drivers of WLAN but unfortunately Windows XP don't have these drivers.

So you have only two options.
Either to upgrade your OS or to search for valid drivers of WLAN of Win-XP on Acer's website.

Please rate this solution properly if it was helpful to you.

With Regards,
Ankit

Acer 4720z wi fi driver on xp Os


Hi There, since Acer do no release a wlan driver for Windows XP, you need to use the driver for Window Vista. If you do not have the driver for Windows Vista, you download it from here . After finish downloading, then un-zip the file. Now let's start to install the wlan drivers. Go to your "Start Menu", then "Settings", "Control Panel" then "System", system properties windows will be pop up. Then select "Hardware" tab, and then click on "Device Manager" button. You will then see "Device Manager" windows. Look for your "Network Adapter" and you will see your wlan network adapter with red cross mark.Right click your red crossed wlan adapter, then select "Update Driver"
You will prompted with "Hardware Update Wizard" then select on "No, not this time" radio button and click on "Next" button. On next windows, select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" radio button and then select "Next" buttons.
Then another window will pop up, then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install", then click on "Next" button. Then you will come to this windows "Select Network Adapter", you will see you existing network adapter that do not working, then select "Have Disk", and browse to the location where you have unzip the driver. Then Select the appropriate driver for your laptop. Acer Aspire laptop 4720z come in 3 wlan varian, Intel chipset, broadcom, and Atheros and I don't know which one is on your laptop. Just try one by one if you are not sure, it's only 3 to choose from.
Hope my solution could help you out.

Problems with 2 operative systems in my new notebook


I've heard there has been a lot of issues running XP and Vista on the same drive.  I think Microsoft is trying to keep the drives working on one operating system because it's easier to fix.  It may only support XP in the configuration you have now.
You should check with Microsoft.com to see if Vista can (and will) support dual operating systems.
