Acer 2480-2153
XP SP3 ALL UPDATES

Originally had vista on it


Had to replace screen something in the hard drive messed up and could not boot.
NO vista recovery CDs available.

I have tried installing all of the ACER'S drivers and 2 third party drivers.

All the drivers are installing fine the device is "working" but cannot seen ANY networks unless its actually WIRED.

I have tried everything except ordering new recovery CDs and cracking the the thing open tearing the SOB out.
PLEASE ADVISE!!

    Check your software Wireless Radio. Make sure it's turned on. If the laptop has a physical switch on the chassis that turns the radio on/off make sure thats on.

    Thirded. This one guy I work with bothers me once a week on average because his computer can't get on the internet. He couldn't remember where that switch is if his life depended on it.
