Hi everybody. I am new to this forum (site) .
A very young relative of mine has acquired an old Acer TravelMate 244LC. The laptop´s system information says Acer 240.
It came without wireless adapter (optional when purchased by first owner). Found the slot on motherboard and installed
a Broadcom adapter BCM94318MPG. After installing and uninstalling a dozen drivers, I finally found the right one. All OK
in device manager, and "device works fine" status. So far so good. Installed after that WIFI names and passwords....
I get nothing, no connection, no other wifis in the building... Says "unavailable", not enabled. Laptop has launch buttons,
all work fine except bluetooth and wioreless (shaded gray). My thought is since those 2 are optional, maybe I must find some
driver to enable them in launch manager... 4 days searching and nothing so far.
Gratitude in advance for any good lead or tips. Acer does not bother, the model being so old.
