Where did you find the XP drivers?
I popped Puppy on a USB stick and booted it, pulled down the drivers for the AR5B91 off the Acer website.
These are for the Vista version:

I think this has to do with turning it "on." I think the problem is similiar to a "cardctl eject" I used to have when using a card adaptor.
Everything is associated, but in the box's mind, it isn't turned "on."
I couldn't find any official XP drivers, and the non-official drivers I found gave: "forcing parameter MapRegisters from 256 to 64" x many.
ndiswrapper -l lists it as present, but the device still does not come up, and is not listed in iwconfig/ifconfig.
Any ideas? Thanks much,
