If you are able to boot into windows, check device manager and see what devices may have an yellow exclamtion mark next to them.

If you any devices, try clicking update driver and point it to the network driver you have to see if it will install it.

Here is a link to the acer web site, I can not link you directly so you'll have to start with this box and click notebook, then aspire then choose 5251, look at the drivers list for Windows 7 http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?Languag...;CRC=2054404012
