Hi Mafilolo, You can download the drivers from here Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook, Ultrabook / TravelMate / TravelMate 5744 also while downloading the network adaptors ,download the chipset driver and reinstall that win 7 only puts the basic chipset drivers on

Hi Mafilolo, There are 3 wireless lan drivers and 1 lan driver on the site , The chipset driver controls the ethernet chip on the motherboard , not knowing which of the wireless drivers are in your laptop I would suggest you try all 3 ! also install the ordinary lan driver

Hi Mafilolo, Can you get on the internet from your laptop ? In device manager ,on the network adaptors is there a Yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside ? if so right click on it and select update drivers
Which of the lan drivers did you install? did you also install the ordinary lan driver are yoou running the install in admin mode ?

Direct link to your chipset driver: CHIPSET

Download and install it, then reboot.

After reboot download and install the LAN (Network Controller) driver, here's the direct download link: LAN
