I downgraded a Acer Aspire 5517 to XP Pro (please dont dog me on this as it was a company requirement). I cannot find a driver for my wireless card that will work.

Try to identify the chipset -- the Linux sites are pretty good on that sort of info -- download generic XP driver for that chipset.

May also find something on -- but they charge these days.

Ended up going to the Atheros web site and downloading a driver from there. I tried three different "driver fix" software, which all got uninstalled because they could not see nor fix my problem. Acer was absolutely no help at all. Makes it easier when we replace computers. Thanks for the suggestions.
