I need the wireless driver for windows xp


No matter what driver you need you will need to collect this information:
Name of your Operating System (Windows XP)
Manufacturer of the wireless adapter (???)
Model number of the adapter (???)

Go to the Manufacturer's website, look up them Model you have and download the driver for your Operating System.

Unfortunately, your driver is likely to be your means of connecting to the Internet so you will have to download the driver on someone else's computer and transfer it to your computer.

I hope this helps.

Installed XP Pro and system doesn't recognize network adapter


Hi,
Whenever you format a laptop, you always need to install the drivers for the chipset, audio, graphics, wifi, LAN etc
Click on this link and, from the drop down menu, choose pronet81266 for wifi and the LAN one at the bottom:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html
Install the chipset and the audio too. The one on the list that says ati is for your graphics card.

Fixya!

My wireless network adapter's device driver doesn't work


Download the latest drivers for XP or Vista

Note: If you can't find Vista drivers for Vista use XP drivers.

Uninstall the driver from XP or Vista.
If you have PCMICA adapter card in laptop remove it.
Reboot the PC

Note: If the network adapter is built-in laptop or PCI (desktop) leave it along.

Re-install the drivers and wait for the driver to tell you when to install the device if you have this option and don't have PCMICA card adapter for wireless.

If the card still doesn't work it could be faulty or OS is corrupted and needs to be re-installed. (this would be the last step to fix the problem)

Can't find Network Adapters


Are there any "!" marks under device manager?

There's a possibility you installed the network adapter driver, but not the chipset driver.
