Re: wireless network adapter not working w/ win 8

I have tried everything I can think of. The wireless card worked yesterday (I turned it off w/ fncf3) but now it will not turn on using that key (turns airplane mode on and off). I have installed and reinstalled atheros wireless network driver and also ePower driver, thinking it might just be a button glitch (but turns airplane on and off). But the wifi will not turn on. I have disabled ahteros driver in control panel shutdown, and then enabled it when I was up and going again. WIFI WON'T TURN ON. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

V3-771G-9809

 

I just ordered this computer. I hope it does not have any issues or I will be requesting my funds back right away. I should have done more research.

I also had the same issue with the V3 771G-9809. Updating the BIOS seems to fix it (my wireless adp now works after the update), but I will not put my laptop back in Airplane mode to test until Acer gives us more informaion about this issue.
