Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

Acer vista to XP conversion, no more wireless

I switched from vista to xp and it works better but I can not get the wireless working. Ethernet is working and so is everything else. I can not find which wireless system they are using and there are 3 available on the acer site. I tried installing and then uninstalling when nothing is working.

Check on the bottom of your laptop; there should be a white label with the manufacturer of your WiFi card on it (Broadcomm, Intel, Atheros, etc.). From there, go to the Acer website and download and install the drivers made for your card.

Samsung r60 no wireless device anymore


Download "DRIVER MAX" it's free and will scan your computer, find installed drivers and hardware, then find the latest drivers for it. I have just changed from Vista (rubbish) to XP on my Tosh. The wireless card on mine is on the ethernet card so to use wireless I had to enable the ethernet card so that driver max could "find" the wireless card. You will be suprised, as I was, how many drivers you are using are XP default drivers. And how much better your laptop runs after just a few new drivers are installed.

Network controller driver


us.acer.com go to service, driver download, select your model, under that above the driver list, change OS from Vista to XP Pro x32, and download the LAN driver. That is your ethernet controller drivers. Since ethernet is your network controller, I'm assuming you need your wireless NIC controller aswell, it will be listed under Wireless LAN. If you don't know/remember the make, download all of them and try each one til one works.
