    Driver writer

    Is there anyone here (or knows of someone) who writes drivers for Windows 2000? I thought I saw there were some driver writers for Windows 9x in the Windows 9x forum, so I would think there would be some for w2k (I can't seem to find the thread). What I need is a wireless internet driver (not ethernet or an adapter) that is compatible with Windows 2000. I do have the install files for Windows 2000 Extended Kernel (it's the one that can make Windows XP sp2 programs compatible with Windows 2000 (such as Firefox 37, which is incompatible)), so if anyone has a working Windows XP sp2 wireless internet driver (or one with Windows 2000 compatibilaty without using Extended Kernel), please share so we don't have to write a driver if one doesn't need to be.

    Where would I find this info at? There's no stickers or anything stating it. The make of the computer however is an Acer TravelMate 2480.

    In Windows 7 try Device Manager > Network Adapters . . . also probably find it in msinfo32.exe as well.

    Speecy > Network.

    I found out from searching that Windows 2000 doesn't have the ability to read wireless networks straight away like what XP and later can do and that a third party software needs to be installed to get it to do that. Once I get that installed, then hopefully w2k can read wireless networks and that'll solve this problem once and for all. I'll report back on my results once I know.
