Lost Wifi after Win10 upgrade from Win 7

Dave_JohDave_Joh Posts: 3Member

I upgraded a few days ago on my ACER Aspire 605G from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and I lost wifi capability.  After upgrading numerous drivers, The Qualcomm Atheros Wireless LA Driver gave a message that said, "The device may not be present or could have been ejected/unplugged from the system.  Insert or reinsert now."  Is that the root of the problem.

 

How do I fix the wifi access?  Thanks for your help.

    Aspire 605G isn't a good model number. Is it a XC-605G?

    Go to Device Manager, Network adapters, double click on your Wifi and click drier. Note the version and date.

    Uninstall the wifi driver in Programs and Features and reboot. Check to see if Win 10 installed the driver again.

    If no driver is installed,Install this driver and reboot.

    Check if Win 10 let it install.
