Wow... Thanks big time!!
Stumbled on your post solution... My daughter can now use what I thought I had to throw out!!! Very clear instructions, thanks a bunch!
Thank you atlast the solution is here.
I have been trying to get the Internet connection working on my Acer for months, but no forum helped until I found this thread. I had to download the file to a flash drive on my Mac and then bring it over to the Acer, but it was simple to follow all your directions and voila! I'm online at last! I've kept this little baby in the drawer for a long time, thinking I'd never be able to use it for anything but note-taking, so I'm overjoyed to have it working. Thank you so much for taking the time to fix this for everyone!
SOLVED: Acer Aspire One ZG5 AOA150
Thank you so much, you are a genius, after months of frustration, you have solved my problem, now my little Aspire One is working beautifully with new mobile wifi
Thank you for this solution! Worked like a charm!
You're a genius
I've been looking for a solution for a long time, finally it worked, my original driver connected to some routers and some others not, now it's working like a charm. Thanks
Thanks, from Brazil.
Thanks for the suggestion. I had tried several other things and it still fails. Now everything is back to normal and I can connect to multiple routers.
AOA150 connects to router but not Internet - update 2014
Hi it's Tiki again...
I'd like to update my original post...the link I provided has since gone 404, so try this:
And navigate to Search by Product Model > Netbook/Chromebook > Aspire One > AOD255 ***Yes*** use the wrong model number for the 150 driver.
Also I didn't note that you'll need to connect to the internet to download the driver to your laptot by using a hard wired connection to your router (RJ45) using a cable connected to a modem or router.
Thanks for all of the nice notes! TM
Driver 188.8.131.526 has been replaced
Just noticed that the download folder for this model now contains a 9.x driver...I would try it. Let us know if it works. Good luck!
184.108.40.2066 is still there....you have to drop the Operating System box to Windows XP 32-bit and may have to click See All vs Latest.
Sorry for all of the reposting.
I know this is an ancient post, but yup, the 9.x version works. Thanks so much to the OP for this.
wondering if i can download an updated driver through a USB?
Thanks for the great post! I've yet to try your tips...one thing though, I wouldn't know what to do or if even possible to download the updated driver onto a usb?? Could you kindly show me how if you think it could bedone? It's because I don't have a modem or cable to download through...Thanks!
Downloading to a USB-stick is no different from downloading to your hard disk.
And installing from a USB-stick is no different from installing from your hard disk.
I have struggled with this problem for years and kept checking Acer for an update. They need help with their configuration control. So far this seems to be working good. I was taking stuff off the laptop in prep to install Ubuntu Linux out of frustration and decided to search the problem one more time and found your solution. Now I will re-evaluate and might keep XP going for a while.
Solved!! For real!! Thank You!!!
I have been without a working computer for almost 6 months!!! I can't thank you enough .... you've saved me hundreds of dollars as I was ready and by necessity going to buy a new computer. Even the technicians I took it too could not fix it and told me the wifi card was dead. I rarely post on these boards but this time I had to as this is the only site out if hundreds with the right answer and the proper link to fix this problem!!
I was getting an IP, but couldn't ping even the router, let alone anywhere on the net.
This solved it!! Thank you so much
