Tried Installing An Updated Wireless Adapter Driver?...
Where do I find the wifi adapter to download Tried acer but
My specific adapter I had was not available, should I stick with the one the laptop came with or dosen't it matter, and which site would have the best one for my Acer, other than the acer site itself?
My acer laptop is 4 years old.
Any help is much appreciated.
Depends On The Adapter Manufacturer..
For most, if the computer manufacturer doesn't have a current device driver, try visiting the adapter manufacturer's website and download an driver from there.. You can determine the adapter's manufacturer by opening Device Manager, then check the "Properties" of the device "Driver" tab.
Hope this helps.
It was not my laptop's wifi that was the problem, it was my-
-linksys router that was needing to be reconfiqured for some reason, perhaps because my hardrive was replaced and I had a new windows xp home edition same as what I had before but I'm not sure why the router needed reconfiguring but the dumb thing was a yesr and a week old and the warranty ran out last week so I had to pay them 30 bucks for phone support but thats better than the 90 that office depot wanted to have a guy come out and fix it.
Oh well it's working and I'm happy about that, but if I was patient enough could I have reconfiged the router myself or was it a tech only situation? Can anyone tell me the answer to that question?
