Broadcom wireless 802.11g driver

Hi,

My Acer Aspire 2920z from Singapore is loaded with vista. From Vista hardware profile, it says its wireless network adapter is broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter. I loaded a winXP and could not find the XP driver for the same hardware. How can/ where can I find and load the driver?

Thanks for your time.

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 geokohler@gmail.com 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,
George

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.

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.

Lost wireless router


I found these 3 drivers on Acer's Website. I have labeled each of them with the Manufacture of the wireless card they are intended for. If you know who the manufacturer of you card is then try that download first, if not try each one until you get the right one (I would try the intel first, then the broadcom, and finally the atheros.)

Atheros:
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles%5CDriver/Wireless%20LAN/Wireless_Atheros(AR5001)_5.3.0.35_XPx86.zip?acerid=633646467253052950&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire%203690&OS=X02&LC=en&SC=EMEA_27

Broadcom:
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles%5CDriver/Wireless%20LAN/Wireless_Broadcom(80211bg)_4.2.2.7_XPx86.zip?acerid=633646467210932680&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire%203690&OS=X02&LC=en&SC=EMEA_27

Intel:

Win xp drivers for acer aspire2920z loptop


I have downgrade two different Acer machines to XP successfully.

The Acer Support Website can be very hard to navigate. Try this link; http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acer/bin/acer.html#

Select "Notebooks", scroll down until you come to the 2920z, see if you can find your specific hardware items. The list includes both Vista and XP drivers.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good Luck
