Specs: windows 7 ultimate, Intel celeron SU2300

i have an acer aspire 1410 netbook. been using it for 2 years and then suddenly it wont start. i reformatted it and installed win7 ultimate. all went well except for its wifi. the wifi is not functioning. when i checked under the computer management it has an other device which tell its a network controller then i updated its driver using the available driver in it. then i selected intel wifi link 5300 AGN, it says that driver update was successful. but whenever i try to turn on the wifi switch, the wifi led indicator does nothing. i dont know if i choose different driver on the pc. as i can see there's atheros, there's this broadcom and intel. i've tried to update to those mentioned but only under the intel i can update thedriver but the wifi is not functioning even i updated its wifi driver.
can anyon tell me what is the exact driver for wifi of acer aspire 1410? it says that its WLAN is 802.11b/g/n. but i cant find available driver from the selecion when updating the driver using the available driver in the computer

Do not update the driver through Device Manager. Download the driver from the Acer website. On Acer laptops, the wireless device is usually an Atheros one, but your's may be different.

Select your model name & number on the Acer website and you should see the drivers which are correct for that model.

The default region is "United States". If your laptop was designed for a different region, click "United States" at bottom left of page and select your country from the list.
