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

My broadcom wireless lan adapter for windows vista not detected in device manager and hp wireless assaistant not working.


You can run HP update to download and install drivers on your PC/Laptop, or run Microsoft update too.

Your HP PC came with a tool called Recovery Manager, Click the vista start menu and in the search bar type (Recovery Manager) without the parenthesis and it should display programs like RECOVERY DISC CREATION and RECOVERY MANAGER , please select the RECOVERY MANAGER an if you have VISTA USER ACCOUNT CONTROL turned on you will have to allow the program to run.
OK, once program launch, select the advance Options and click on HARDWARE DRIVER RE-INSTALLATION and click next. follow the screen instructions to re-install the driver or drivers.
Make sure you are not running any other program when using recovery manager.
GOOD LUCK

what operating system you using? xp or vista? home? premium? basic? at any rate use this link to select your unit and use the operating system drop down menu to locate the software that is loaded on the computer. from there select the correct driver. Make sure you select the Lan Driver first. Load that. THen select either the atheros or broadcom driver. if you install both it will be fine. the machine will only install the correct one to the device. good luck!

Are you sure that you installed the windows xp drivers and not the vista drivers? There may be no xp drivers for your laptop, and if thats the case, you'll have to switch back to vista. Make sure you know 100% that its the xp drivers.
