Aspire 5610 Wireless Problem

A month ago I upgraded my Acer Aspire 5610 to Vista with no problems    (didnt upgrade the BIOS). Recently, I downgraded back to XP for compatability reasons. After reverting to XP, I noticed my wireless connection was not working (The necessary executables, and drivers were installed after XP). Any suggestions as to why this is happening?

 

Please note -

    I have the same problem, but different computer. I have an Aspire 2920Z and changed my windows Vista to XP. I can't install the wireless. The driver doesn’t work. My XP is the SP2.

    I'd like to help to fix it.



    Thanks.



    Sorry for my mistakes.

I had a similar problem.  When I reloaded Vista, I didn't use Acers disk.  Turns out I still couldn't use Wireless after loading all the drivers.  I had to FLASH the BIOS to get it to work.  The files are with the drivers.  If you made the drivers disk, it will be in a bios directory.  Otherwise just download the flash for BIOS from Acer.

This may be a bit late for Sanjaja. I'm running XP with SP3 I have the same problem - my wireless button on my Acer 5610 ceased to function tonight. Now, I come from the generation of MacGuyver wannabes, who have to open up ANYTHING that's broken with my trusty pocket knife, even though I have little to no idea what I'm doing. Unfortunately in doing so I popped the switch off, and the little spring it was attached to zipped off to wherever the other end was - beyond the reach of my knife. ****.
I tried opening device manager to find a way of enabling the wireless on switch via the software, but to no avail.
When I booted up the computer, the wireless adapter would start to connect to the internet,, then the ePowering Technology would startup, and turn off my wireless. The only way i could connect again was to unplug my power cable, & try to find a solution online before my battery ran out.
I even tried fiddling with the BIOS

Anyway - SOLUTION

1- I pressed the 'e' key, up the top right corner of my keyboard, about half an inch above my delete key.

2- I selected Acer eNet Management

3- Underneath the Settings button, and to the left of the VPN button, there's an icon that looks like a magnifying glass over this shape _'_ ..... so i pressed that. It turned out to be a Network Adviser button.

4- There was a table with the headings Event, Possible Cause, & Solution. The even was that my wireless adapter wasn't enabled. Funnily enough, that was also the Possible Cause. The Possible Solution said "To enable it, click here. So I clicked 'here' and I'm connected, and posting this long-winded note. So hopefully it may help someone

I want to get rid of windows vista and install windows xp


I suggest to upgrade to Windows 7 instead of downgrading because Windows 7 has better performance than Vista. But if you still want to go to Windows XP you have 2 choices.
The first is to format the drive where Vista is installed and to install fresh copy of Windows XP.
Second choice is to install Windows XP as second OS and at the end of the installation, at activation step, you have to choose activation by Phone. Then you should call Microsoft Helpdesk and provide the code of your Windows XP to the operator and tell him that you need downgrading Vista code. Then he will guide you to the rest of the activation and the downgrade of Vista.

Good luck!

Bios upgrade bios for aspire 5610z


If you go to the acer site there are utilities to update the bios

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/utilities.html#BIOS

Make sure 11% that you flash the correct bios as the wrong one will render it useless. Also make sure that you are plugged into the mains when doing it and pray that there isnt a power cut during the flash :)
