How do I get the acers drivers installed? I have down loaded all three wireless drivers,and none work.


Drivers for windows Vista are here: http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_4720.html
Under Drivers and Utilities, Select and download these drives;
1. Wireless LAN Atheros
2. Wireless LAN Broadcom
3. Wireless LAN Intel
While installing, please start with "Intel" as you follow instruction there after. Restart your Laptop and install Broadcom, Atheros respectively.

Please ensure that VISTA SP1 is installed on your system prior to installing these drivers!
Driver incompatibilities on a system without VISTA SP1 might affect usability.

No Wireless Connection With Atheros AR5BXB63 Wireless Card.


I think you WiFi card may have turned it's toes up. You need to try a replacement. OR try your Wifi card in a friends unit to test.

Atheros AR5BXB63 is gone from Device Manager


Sounds like your hardware WIFI card has failed inside the laptop. The easiest thing to do would be to get an external PCMCIA or USB WIFI card. Many of them are available for under $15.00 on ebay.
I would suggest a PCMCIA WIFI card which will leave your usb ports free.

You can check with ACER to find out what a new wifi card would cost and if they have any manuals to show how to replace it. I have had many laptops pulled apart and it is much more difficult to replace internal cards and parts than on a desktop.

Below is a link to an ebay page with laptop WIFI cards auction listings.

I hope that this information .helpful and will leave positive feedback for me if you do.

Thank You,

Brian

The second note is download Vista SP1. Vista has had alot of problems maintaining network connections. Miscrsoft said they fixed it in SP1.
