i have an acer aspire 5732z notebook and i am installing windows xp on it.
i got all the drivers but i couldnt find the wireless driver.

but i couldnt find anywhere to download the driver.

did you try here:

http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/downloaddrivers.php

too bad the acer website doesn't provide windows xp drivers.

Glad to see I'm not the only one thinking that –  r0ca Aug 26 '10 at 18:45
    
i saw it there... its just kinda hidden broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netxtreme_desktop.php Here's the link i was thinking... perhaps this is only for wired NIC cards, but its worth a try. –  KronoS Aug 26 '10 at 19:32
    
this looks like its for wired. i didnt ever see a wireless network driver that is 129KB –  Karim Aug 26 '10 at 20:19

Try the Driver Max website...have used them before - the only caveat is that you can only download one (i think!) free driver per day, so choose carefully...

They have a lot of older drivers, and many users contribute drivers...worth a look!

Go here and download this driver package from Dell, use winzip or other utility to unpack the exe file, then use device manager to install the driver manually, point it to the "DRIVER" folder of the unpacked contents. see if it will work for you.

If given the choice of download method after clicking "Download" button, use your Browser.
