Broadcom will only work if your laptop actually has a wireless receiver built in to it. If it does not, you need to purchase a new card for the slot. Some laptops ship with a default instruction book for all its laptops, but not all laptops have built in wireless receiver. If you are sure it does, look for a wirelss on off switch on your laptop, usually at the front or either side of the laptop shell.

M trying to activate my wireless connection for my acer x1200 do I need a disk or can I press certain buttons to activate the wireless


You should be able to see there might be an antenna on the back of your computer which is part of the wireless network adaptor. I checked the specification of your computer and did not see wireless card included. You may need to buy one internal wireless card or a USB wireless card to use wireless feature. You will need to install the driver and configure it to use a wireless access point on some of the wireless cards. Usually you can turn on wireless by using network connection or using the connect to item in the start menu if you are using Windows Vista.

Is the acer as5517 series laptop using a pci express card for the internal wireeless card


The Acer, as with lots of other laptops uses a smaller, card interface called "Half Size Mini PCI". This is much smaller than the desktop specification PCI or PCI Express and is specific to laptop hardware.

I looked at a spare parts website to find you a part number and came up with this. Use this information to find a similar part based on your country.

Compatible Hardware: Aspire 5517 series (AS5517-5700, AS5517-5997)
Wireless Card details: Atheros AR5B95-H half size mini PCI wireless network card (Dual mode 802.11b/g)

Courtesy of Gateway here is your driver for the network card:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?ref=step&st=browse&platform=10022&model=11417&os=10406&type=10095

Now here is where it gets tricky. I'm not sure what wireless network card you have there but on that page is a section that says other available downloadsm click on where it says "click here to view these results". There will be drivers for different network cards. I believe it will be the first one in the list, the broadcom one, if not then try any of the other wireless card drivers. Hope this helps you and sorry for the delay.

Try to use your laptop in the other wifi connection if it's work the problem is your router wifi configuration. But if cannot work try to check in device manager if your wifi device is working properly. in the RUN type DEVMGMT.MSC and look for your wifi device there if there is a ? mark it's mean that there is a complex configuration in the wifi. remove the wifi device in restart your computer the windows automatic detect the device in install it. try to connect if it is work but if still not work check for the ip and gateway configuration in the wifi setup.

Asprie 5570Z wifi drivers


That laptop came with 3 different internal WiFi cards.

You can look on the bottom of the unit, and it "should" have a sticker / label telling you which one is installed.

Once you have figured out which card you have, you can get the drivers for the card here, under " Drivers and utilities - MS Windows XP". the wireless drivers are at the bottom of the list from the dropdown box:

Using my laptop


Hi,
So let me make this clear. you want to be able to connect to the internet wirelessly with your laptop instead of having a cable plugged in. if so, what you need is a wireless router. you can purchase a netgear WGT624 connect that to your DSL modem and configure your laptop to connect wirelessly. there should be an icon on the lower right hand corner to configure your wireless on laptop. its easy. if your having a hard time doing that call dell at 800-8228965.

hope this helps.

thanks.
