    Touchpad and Wi-fi issue


    Hello Sir,
    i installed windows 8 pro in vmware a day ago. Everything is working fine except that my Synaptics touchpad is not providing all the functionalities which it provides in windows 7. I read some blog somewhere and downloaded and installed the drivers for the touchpad. But that didn't help. Even now, i can't scroll or pinch zoom or rotate pictures or do stuff like that with my touch pad.

    Another thing,my wi-fi is working but the icon is not the same as we get for wi-fi connections. I am getting that icon (a monitor with a cable pointing upwards in the side) which we get for dial up connections.

    Would b very grateful if anybody of you could help me with these issues.
    Thank You.
