Hi all,
Have finally managed to get win xp pro onto the 3930t, but I can't seem to be able to get wifi on it?? Anyone know how to get the drivers for win xp pro on this Acer and what devices to look for please?
Thanks.
Chris.

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Of the choices in cmichael138's link, use http://www.pcidatabase.com to find the driver.

If in Device Manager>{device}Details tab>HardwareIDs, the code is 8086 it's Intel. For Atheros look for 103C and 0A5C is Broadcom and finally Realtek is 1039.

Once PCIdatabse points you to the Vendor, use the Edit>Find menu to enter the DEV ID and follow the trail to the maker's website for that driver.
