Did you try the Acer website for drivers? Cause I did and I found exactly what you're looking for in 2 mins. For some reason the www.Acer.ca website doesnt work so jsut goto the www.acer.com site and Support > Drivers > Choose make/model.

Or here is a direct link if you're that lazy: Service & Support

Better if you get them from here: ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows

Then you'll have the latest since I'm sure Acer's are utterly outdated.

another fix (if you can) is to install a usb wireless adapter, then run windows update. windows update drivers for lan and wlan are pretty good. best to the them from the manufactures website, but win update will do in alot of cases.

Heh, i had this same problem yesterday. Couldn't get drivers because acer was down, and this is what i did to solve it.
