Hi, I recently purchased an Acer Aspire M5-481PT and have been experiencing problems connecting to my wireless modem. I just moved into a new place and the internet was just set up this week. It works fine via Ethernet, however it is unable to connect via wireless, despite the computer being able to detect the connection exists.
Whenever I try to connect to my home router and key in the password, it takes a long time attempting to connect and always ends up failing to do so. I have restarted the computer and tried many times with the same end results.
I am using Windows 8, and have tried updating the wireless adaptor software however it is already the latest version.
Right now, it says Connecting next to my home connection, but when I try to disconnect it wouldn't let me. I have also tried to Forget the Network by right-clicking, but the option wouldn't appear as well.
Please help. Thank you.
