      Not sure which WiFi chipset you have,

      probably Atheros, but a quick search with Bing popped up a few hits, this one looks promising…

      Acer Aspire 5100 Windows XP & Vista Drivers

      ps…on my old Acer Aspire One ZG5 netbook, it has an Atheros WiFi chip, and to get higher speeds as well as connection to newer WiFi hotspots, I updated to Atheros driver, but I can’t remember WHERE I found it, that was about 4 years ago. I think I saved the driver install file if I can find it…old wizards have lots of stuff stashed around!

      If you are not able to install the wifi driver, you can install other packed drivers which are contained of the entire setup.
