Internet on windows vista

Specs: Windows XP
Does anybody have up to date Internet drivers for windows vista? I have a tri boot setup witch includes windows 2000 xp and vista(I have another post in the windows 2k forum witch mentions that) Internet works fine in xp but not on 2000 or vista. Internet also works fine on 7, 8, and 10 beta build.

The way I see it you should already have the Windows Vista and Windows 2000 standard drivers present. What you need is the drivers for either the Ethernet or Wifi hardware, if available for those systems.

Someone might be able to take this forward if you give us the make and model number of your computer, or motherboard number if it is home built.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I ran the diagnostic test built in and it said I don't have a wireless adapter installed and configured. The wireless adapter I do have is a Marvell drive. It is an acer aspire laptop

You can check device manager in whatever OS you boot to to check to see if drivers are installed but, as Derek mentioned, they probably aren't.

There's a lot of Acer Aspire models but just go to the support page for your particular model to see if wireless drivers are available for the OS for which they're missing. Or if this is an external wireless connection then go to their support page for drivers.

We can't point you at the correct drivers without knowing the make/model of your network chip.

The model number might be underneath, or at the rear.
