Windows 8 Wireless - not working

I just purchased an Aspire V5 - 571 and installed Windows 8 Pro over Windows 7 and the wireless driver is not working. I went into the device manager under the 'Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Network Adapter' and it says that the " This device cannot start. (Code 10) {Operation Failed} The requested operation was unsuccessful." I tried to update the driver and it told me that the driver has already been updated. Can you please find a solution for this?


Thank you,
