Question about Acer InviLink 802.11b (91.49C10.002) Wireless Adapter
I having the Acer 4315 WLAN XP driver problem, Acer provide Broadcom & Atheros driver at their website, but both of the driver was not able to up the WLAN.
Please email me ([email protected]) the driver if you have.
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:
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.
