    I have tried to get the newest drivers but it won't even detect that the wireless internet card is in the computer

    I've tried plugging it into a wired connection and now my ethernet driver isn't working. I can't get on to the Acers website for driver support to find out if there is a better driver.

    Is the operating system reloaded? What is the make and model of the wireless adaptor?

If they were part of the operting, they would be there. You might want to download a new set or get them for the CD that came with the device.

    Do you have a way of plugging it in wired into the router to get the wireless drivers you need? Try that and then it should work.



    Usually when you reinstall Windows, it work better on wired network anyways than it does wireless.
