Acer Aspire E1-531 Network Controller



At first my Acer Aspire E1 was stuck in an Automatic Repair Loop and I recovered my system by creating an recovery disk on a USB Drive. Once I got my laptop working again, I go to Change PC Settings and click on Wireless and see that Bluetooth is grayed out and I don't have a Wife option in wireless. I tried to turn on my WiFi using Acer Device Fast-Lane but it doesn't detect any wireless devices nor does my WiFi stay on. I know it is not my router because my phone can detect my router and I live in a college dorm and my laptop would detect the other routers. I went and looked at my devices in my settings and there was a ! by my Network Controller and saying that the drive is not installed. I went to the site and download the correct drive and let is run on my laptop but nothing works. How can I access my Bluetooth and WiFi options?
