Cant Find Ethernet and Wireless lan Drivers

Hello people, as you may guess this notebook uses "Windows Vista" but i dont really like it, so i decided to downgrade it to "Windows XP SP3" i managed to install it, with a XP cd with SATA drivers, ok i downloaded all the drivers (even the Graphics driver, wich is really hard to find) but the Ethernet and Wireless lan Drivers does'nt seem to work. any help

The ID's of the hardware are.

Ethernet: Marvell Yukon 88E8039 PCI-E
WLAN: Realtek RTL8187B Wireless 802.11 h/g 54mbps USB2.0 Network Adapter

Aditional info: The only that seemed to work was the ethernet driver, but i connect the internet cable and nothing happens...

Hope you can help me, Zetsumei-Sensei...

Network controller driver


us.acer.com go to service, driver download, select your model, under that above the driver list, change OS from Vista to XP Pro x32, and download the LAN driver. That is your ethernet controller drivers. Since ethernet is your network controller, I'm assuming you need your wireless NIC controller aswell, it will be listed under Wireless LAN. If you don't know/remember the make, download all of them and try each one til one works.

Lan and wireless driver for toshiba a135-s2246


Unfortunately, the Toshiba Satelite A135-S2246 was never designed to run XP, only Vista. Which is why you can't find any drivers for XP. The nearest you can get is to find a laptop running XP SP2 that is using the same LAN (ethernet controller) and WLAN (wireless ethernet controller), and see if they will work.

Here are the drivers I found for XP (please check which one's you are trying to install):

Atheros WiFi card driver:
http://www.wireless-driver.com/download/atheros/2007-7-23/Atheros-ar5bxb6-AR5424-mini-PCI-E-Wireless-Card-Driver-Download.htm

Intel WiFi card driver:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx
You will need to search for the card that you have.

LAN (ethernet controller):
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=6&PFid=6&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#1
You can pick third or fourth from top depending on your preference.

Please remember that Toshiba, Microsoft, Atheros, Realtek, Intel and especially myself accept no responsibilty for what may, or may not happen when installing drivers not specifically designed for your system. All that said, I hope it works for you.

Ethernet drivers


Windows XP Driver
Windows Vista Driver

These updates should sort out ethernet problems.

If these don't work or you have Wireless LAN, here is the Wireless LAN driver.
