A friend of mine brought over a Acer Inspire 1430 Laptop that he bought from soneone. Whoever owned it before him did a fresh Windows 7 install but didn't install any of the Drivers for the laptop itself. Therefore most things are not working. The Main thing I need to get working is the Wifi.Then I can get everything else working after that. I tried to download the Network drivers from Acer, but the thing they had me download was the WinZip Driver Updater, which scans your computer for what drivers you need and downloads them for you so you can install them. Well in order to scan the computer it requires a Network connection. Which I do not have cause i need the driver haha sort of a catch 22 situation. 

Can someone please help me find the proper Network Driver for the Acer Inspire 1430 windows 7. He bought this laptop for his 11yr old Niece as a present cause shes been through some hard stuff lately, lost her father in a care wreck, and some other stuff as well, as if losing her father wasn't enough. So she really deserves this laptop and its up to me to get it working for her. So can someone please help me get this thing working. Shes gonna be here soon and we are gonna surprise her with it when she gets here, so I need to get it done ASAP

so I finally found the proper page that lets me download the individual drivers myself. Unfortunately there is multiple Wireless LAN drivers. Some are from Broadcom, some from Intel and Some from Atheros. So I don't know which one I am supposed to use. I have the ACER Inspire 1430Z model.

To determine which one you need , Atheros / Intel etc.

1/ Goto - Control Panel / Device Manager.

2/ Select Network Adapters

3/ Right Click - Wifi Adaptor

4/ Select Properties

5/ Click "Details"  Tab.

6/ In Property Drop Down List - Select Hardware ID

7/ Copy the PCI/VEN Top Line 

8/ Paste that in your Browser { Google Search } and it will tell you the Maker for what you need.

 

Then you can go to ACER Downloads and find it , for WIN 7 Version / 32BIT or 64BIT.

 

You can use this process for all Drivers you require.
