    Problem wtih Ethernet Controller - No Internet


    I have just installed windows 8 on my Acer Aspire T120c which was running Windows XP. I can't connect to the internet becuase there is a problem with the ethernet controller driver. I've installed all the drivers I can find on the Acer website but it doesn't fix it. Can anyone help?
