xp internet won't work
« on: September 09, 2007, 03:14:04 PM »

Hey Just recently I bought a Acer Aspire 5610 laptop and was preloaded with windows Vista. I dual-booted it with Windows xp Sp2 and that seams to work fine but I am having a problem with the internet on it.  I have a wireless driver for it but mine isnt wireless right now so that doesnt matter.  I have tryed going to the Acer website and downloading drivers for it but it doesnt seam to install or atleast show on the device manager.  The internet works on Vista and that driver is Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller.  I have also tryed downloading that and installing it but it still doesnt show on device manager.  Can anyone help try and figure this out?

Try deleting all the stuff under network in the device manager and hitting the refresh devices button.. maybe a generic driver got installed for it during XP install, and it was the wrong one.

I have just tryed that and nothin has changed.  I also went into command prompt and typed ipconfig and I don't have one so I know there is a problem.

So you have absolutely nothing under network adapters in the device manager?

right click > uninstall
on the Other Devices > PCI Device

then get your drivers ready and hit the "Scan for hardware changes" button at top

ok I have uninstalled it and when i click the scan for hardware button it comes back but it needs internet to get the updated version of the driver and I don't have the internet.  I tryed installing the NIC driver I got from Acer but that doesnt work still.  I dunno what else to do? I emailed Acer about the driver problem and hopefully they can help.
