Hi, I have an Acer TravelMate 2420. And every time I install windows XP it, for some reason, cannot find the wireless network hardware. And installing the driver seems to be useless as well. Any suggestion on how to fix this?

Acer's wireless network cards are usually very proprietary and can be a hard task to get them to work with a new OS. You may want to find a good PCMCIA card to insert into the side of your laptop. thay are usually pretty inexpensive. Also, check Acer's website to see if there is an updated driver or one that lists compatable with WinXP.

Try right-clicking on My Computer, go to Manage, then go into Device Manager. Inside Device Manager's list, do you see any devices with a yellow exclamation point? If not, expand the "Network adapters" section and see what's listed. It's possible that there is no wireless adapter in that laptop (unless you're sure there is one). Another possibility is that the wireless adapter is there, but not functional, faulty, or just plain broken. If the device is there and working, it should show up in Device Manager as an installed device; if it's there, but not working, it'll show up with an exclamation point. If it's not in the list at all, it's probably broken or the laptop doesn't have a wireless card.

I can´t install my network controller --> wlan .


no problem. That's right. On the website you can find several LAN drvers, because they don't always mount the same adapters, even if it is the same model of computer.
