Sorry if I am coming into this early, but I had the same problem with my Acer Extensa 4420. Eventually, after tons of forum threads, I found that the same chip that's in the Acer computers is also in some Dell computers. Just ignore the fact that it says it's by Dell and download this:
http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R174291.EXE


Then, extract the files to a folder and from device manager, and point 'Network Controller' (or whatever your wireless adapter is named in device manager) to that folder.

There are no XP drivers for wireless card in your laptop. Your card is specifically designed to take advantage of the power of windows Vista. If you need backward compatibility the best thing for you to do is partition your hard drive into two logical drives and run a dual boot configuration. You make your XP partition around 1/3 of your overall drive capacity. If you have a 120 Gb hard drive partition it into a 40Gb for XP and 80Gb for your Vista Load both operating systems and use a program like boot magic to alter your master boot record to allow you to choose which operating system you want to boot to when you first start up your computer. That ia the way I set my 2 new laptops up. I have software that only will run in the XP environment so I install it on the smaller XP partition. You can still use the full disk size and you can save stuff from one to the other with no problems. You only lose about 15Gb due to the second operating system. This way all your advanced hardware runs to the best of it's designed capability and you can still run your XP dependant software when you reboot to the XP environment. This is the only way to do it right. And if you need wireless capability in your XP enviroment you can purchase a USB WiFi adapter. They have little ones now the size of a pen drive. If you need any help with this feel free to contact me.

    Just wondering if you had a chance to read my post yet. There are no drivers and there never will be unless you code them yourself. The manufacturers are locked in a deal with microsoft only to provide drivers for the new hardware in vista format. Microsoft does this to force users to migrate to vista. My solution is the only way around this. There is another approach but it is more costly. You can purchase an older mini pci wlan card and install it in your computer and there is no garauntee that your computer will accept the older card that you can find an xp driver for. Microsoft is known for its bully tactics like this. The solution above is the best anyone can give you and the one I use myself. You will have the best of both worlds. Please take the time to rate this a fixya. I will help you all the way. I even have all the software you will need to do it. Partition magic and boot magic. I will send you them for the cost of the mailer postage and blank disk. around 2 dollars total. I was doing this for free but I help so many people between phone calls postage and media and mailers I was spending too much of my own money. My 25 years of experience are well worth a fixya rating and I will help you until you are done. I will even call you and walk you through everything if you need detailed assistance. I have fixed over 250 things for people in the 2 weeks I've been here. Read my reviews and you will see all the people I have helped. I only answer the paid questions so the paying customers get the right answer. Most of the so called experts here are profoundly retarded. The only requirement to be an expert here is to answer 30 free questions and not even with the right answer. Anyway you are lucky I found you. I will have you running dual boot in no time. It is the best way to go.

NO GETTING WLAN DRIVER FOR MY ACER ASPIRIE 5500Z LAPTOP FOR WINDOWS VISTA .


Hi,

Depending on the wlan model, you need one of these drivers

Ambit
Atheros
Broadcom
Intel

As this is an older model, the drivers may not be compatible to Vista.
If none of them are working, either try to install Windows 7 (with 7 i had the WLAN already installed with windows on a travelmate 5520) or revert to windows XP, for which one of the drivers I gave you works for sure.

Acer 4720z wi fi driver on xp Os


Hi There, since Acer do no release a wlan driver for Windows XP, you need to use the driver for Window Vista. If you do not have the driver for Windows Vista, you download it from here . After finish downloading, then un-zip the file. Now let's start to install the wlan drivers. Go to your "Start Menu", then "Settings", "Control Panel" then "System", system properties windows will be pop up. Then select "Hardware" tab, and then click on "Device Manager" button. You will then see "Device Manager" windows. Look for your "Network Adapter" and you will see your wlan network adapter with red cross mark.Right click your red crossed wlan adapter, then select "Update Driver"
You will prompted with "Hardware Update Wizard" then select on "No, not this time" radio button and click on "Next" button. On next windows, select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" radio button and then select "Next" buttons.
Then another window will pop up, then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install", then click on "Next" button. Then you will come to this windows "Select Network Adapter", you will see you existing network adapter that do not working, then select "Have Disk", and browse to the location where you have unzip the driver. Then Select the appropriate driver for your laptop. Acer Aspire laptop 4720z come in 3 wlan varian, Intel chipset, broadcom, and Atheros and I don't know which one is on your laptop. Just try one by one if you are not sure, it's only 3 to choose from.
Hope my solution could help you out.
