    I just went to Starbucks and I was able to connect to the wireless network with no problems. I am now sure it is a settings mess up.

so ..my advise is to reinstall the windows xp ...cause this machine it was on xp from the first ...and this might be just the reason ..those are the drivers for it
also ...you can download Everest software ...and locate the exact name of the wifi platform ..and look after that for a vista driver for it by its name ......this way you cant be wrong ...cause you locate the suitable driver ...not the ones they feed us in packages...

Acer 5100 will not connect to wireless


Things to Check:
1. Please check if the wireless switch on your laptop is ON?
2. Are you able to see your wireless network in the list of connections?

If the answer for both of the above is yes, then Turn OFF & Turn ON the Modem/Router.

Please delete all the connections that are stored on your laptop's wireless settings/Wireless connections and retry connecting to your network.

On your modem/router, please remove any security passwords and make the network accessible by any one any try connecting to the network.If the connection is successful, then reprogram the modem / router with a password.

Another easy fix to find if the fault is actually with your laptop is to go to a free public wireless hotspot and see if your laptop connects to their network.If it dd, its not your Laptop but your wireless modem/router.

Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
