Hi!
Last night I installed Windows XP on my laptop and installed all the drivers for my PC except for my wireless card driver, I can't find one that works. I have an Acer Aspire 5251-1805 (Under 'Other Devices' it says network controller and has a ? and a ! next to it. (I already have my ethernet driver installed)) PLEASE HELP thanks :)

In other words, you downgraded to XP, right?

You will need to identify the wireless device manufacturer and model and either look for a reference driver from the manufacturer or look for an older laptop that used the same wireless hardware but came with XP installed.
