I'm helping a relative who got a refurbished Acer Travelmate 3200 : according to specs,
this model is supposed to come with a LAN as well as a built-in WIFI network connections.
In fact from the exterior view, I can see there's an RJ45 LAN port and a wireless button
which I suppose is meant to activate/deactivate WIFI but when I press on this button, its
LED did not light up.
Also when a valid LAN cable from a switch is connected up to the LAN port, the LED on
the port did not show (ie the LED remains not lighted up).
I've reinstalled Win XP on this Travelmate.
Do I need to download specific drivers from Acer to get them enabled? I thought these
should be quite common & the drivers are supposed to be built in in Win XP installation
CD. This XP CD is from Dell but it appears to the usual Win XP CD.
In the Network, Show All Connections, only 1394 (ie Firewire) is shown.
How can I verify if the LAN & WIFI adapters are functioning and how to get them working?
