I had to repair my aspire 5552 to an acer repair shop which they told me my motherboard was burnt and had to replace it. But since they told me that the original motherboard for this model was not in production anymore and could not be found they changed with another acer motherboard which it works. Now internet via LAN works fine but have problems with wifi. I tried to download the driver networks for this motherboard which is Acer JE51_DN (Socket S1G4) but of course cannot be find on the acer website since all drivers are listed by computer's model and not by motherboard's names. Now i saw online this motherboard related to some acer notebook models so i downloaded the drivers from those models which still doesn't work. on the wifi mask canot find any wifi network. What's to be done?

I would contact the Acer repair shop and ask them where to get the drivers that work on that adapter, since they installed it for you. Depending on the wireless adapter model, you can sometimes get the drivers directly from the wireless maker -- Realtek for example.
