brand new acer xc 6000 windows 8 will notfind my wireless network

ChelseaLynn86ChelseaLynn86 Member Posts: 1

I just turned on my brand new just out of the box desktop computer.  It says that there are no wireless networks available and keeps saying I have to plug in an ethernet cable. My network is working because every other device in my house connects to it no problem. I am getting mad because it shouldn't be this hard to connect to the darn internet. 

 

Please help. I am really frustrated and all ready hating windows 8.

    Hi,

     

    • Please verify in the device manager if there is a yellow triangle somewhere.

    to access to device manager do this                                      

    1- Press WIN+R

    2- Then write devmgmt.msc

    3- Then ok

    Awaiting your response,

    I have the same problem with my Aspire MC605 which I just set up today. I did what you asked with device manager and could not find said yellow triangle. I have also tried installing Wireless LAN Atheros Driver but still no luck. HELP!
