There is a linksys driver that supposedly fixes an hacker exploit and works on many non-linksys wireless cards. I have a compaq F370us converted to XP. I currently use bcmwl5.sys as the broadcom driver. Recently began having difficulties with the wireless connecting and searched for an updated driver. I fund a seemingly credible recommendation for the linksys driver available thru the link below. I haven't tried it. You have to force it as it won't recognize the driver as the right choice. I haven't installed it yet, but experentation may provide a solution. You can rolback the driver if it doesn't work, but a proper backup before would be prudent.

Unfortunately there are no drivers for XP for your Vista equipment. It was intentionally designed to only work in the
vista environment. This is Microsoft's way of strong arming people to migrate to vista against their will! They threaten
the hardware manufacturers to pull licensing rights if they release XP drivers for the new equipment. You can buy an
external wifi adapter, but then you have to deal with a device hanging out the side of your laptop and using up one of
your usb sockets. This is the only way to get around it for the time being. The hackers are slowly writing the drivers,
but there are so many different versions of equipment odds are slim that they will ever write one for your exact wifi
card. I will place you on my update list and contact you if/when I find the hacked driver for you. I'm keeping a data
base of 100's of people going through your exact problem. Complain vigorously to microsoft through email and tell
them how you feel about them forcing you to migrate to an operating system nobody wants or needs. If enough
people do maybe they will get the picture and allow the hardware manufacturers to release XP drivers. I hope you
found this helpful and informative. If you want to be on my update list send me an email to and
I will add you to my list, make sure to include your make and model laptop so I do not have to search through here for
it,Thanks. As soon as I find a Verified driver that works with your system I will send you a link where you can
download it from my personal server. Hope to hear from you soon,

Make sure that the device is recognized in device manager and that the driver is installed. If then go to the web site for setting up the router. If it still does not work then the router is fubar. Of course, you need to make sure that your provider is "on line."

Wireless connection keeps turning on and off every 10 secs. Contacted internet provider they say it could be the driver?

We'll start with the Driver, and see.

A Driver is a small piece of software written, to allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device.
Windows XP is one example of an O/S, and the wireless adapter, is an example of a device.

Acer Support > Aspire 6530-5143 Notebook PC > Driver Download page,

Scroll the page down to the heading - Wireless LAN
You will see there are several drivers listed.

There are several things that need to be matched up, in order to download the correct driver.

1) The Operating System.
What O/S is installed on the laptop?
Windows XP, or Windows Vista?

2) What wireless module is installed in the laptop?
What manufacturer is it?
Atheros, Broadcom, or Ralink?

1a) Operating System.
This one is easy. You know which O/S is on your computer.
However you may need to find out which version it is.
32-bit (x86) ot 64-bit.

Windows XP:
Left-click on Start, then Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
The Windows version is listed at the top.

Windows Vista:
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then Right-click on Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
The Windows version is listed at the top.
Windows Vista x86 is the 32-bit version.
Windows Vista x64 is the 64-bit version.

2a) To find out the wireless module (Adapter) manufacturer perform this;

Windows XP:
Left-click on Start, then Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.

Now left-click on the Hardware tab. Then left-click on Device Manager.
After Device Manager has fully loaded, left-click on the + sign next to - Network adapters.
Do you see Atheros, or Broadcom, or Ralink, listed?

Write down the wireless adapter manufacturer name.

Windows Vista:
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then Right-click on Computer.
Left-click on Properties, then follow the above as listed out for WinXP.

If it is an Atheros wireless adapter, see if it has T77H053, or T60H976 listed next to it.
There is a specific driver listed for these two models.

An example;
If you know that the wireless adapter is Not an Atheros, and Not one of the two models, T77H053, or T60H976, there are 7 drivers listed.
(These 7 drivers are listed in-between the T77H053, and T60H976 models)

The first two drivers listed are for Atheros. (Under the T77H053 heading)
The first Atheros driver is for Windows XP.
The second Atheros driver is for Windows Vista.

For an example, if you have Windows XP as an O/S, and an Atheros wireless adapter, you would use the first Atheros driver listed.

Not an Atheros wireless adapter?
Let's go on to Broadcom, then.

The first Broadcom driver listed is for Vista, and the 32-bit version.
The second Broadcom driver listed is for Vista, and the 64-bit version.
The third Broadcom driver listed is for Windows XP. (32-bit version)

In Vista left-click on the Windows logo button, then Right-click on Computer.
You are looking at the System Properties window.
At the top portion will tell you what operating system you are using, and what version.
32-bit (x86) or 64-bit.

The first Ralink wireless driver listed is for Windows XP.
The second Ralink driver listed is for Vista, and the 64-bit version.

Confusing? Isn't meant to be.
If you find out what Operating System you are using, and what wireless adapter, using what I have posted above, simply state this information in a Comment, and I will guide you to the correct driver.

Once you left-click on the correct driver file you need, a small window will come up on the right side.
It starts with, "Opening........" in the heading at the top of the small window.

Left-click on OK at the bottom of the small window.
A small window will come up on the left side.
In the wording of the heading at the top of this small window, tells you where the file will download to.

A) For Windows XP:
It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording of the heading.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen

My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents, then DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

B) Windows Vista:
It may have Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, in the heading.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

Documents: Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents.

Downloads: Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

C) When you see the file name, DOUBLE-click right on it. (Opens the file)
The Installation Wizard will come up.
Follow the easy instructions.

(Essentially just click on Next, next, and Finish at the bottom of the windows. DO NOT alter any settings, as Windows knows THE correct place to put the wireless driver file)

I know it's a lot to take in, but instead of replying back, and forth to obtain the information needed, (What O/S, what wireless adapter), I posted all of it for you to see.

As stated, if you post the O/S (Operating System), and what wireless adapter it is, and I'll guide you.

[Windows is a 'funny' animal. Sometimes drivers are lost.
It isn't actually that the driver isn't there anymore, it is the address to the driver that is lost ]
