    Clicked disable, then enable.

    The "exclamation mark" icon is still present.

    Afraid that I've still had no luck being able to download the Atheros driver. When I try to update as suggested above, it just says that the most up to date driver has been installed...and the Drivers Download link as posted previously doesn't seem to work unfortunately.

    GOOD NEWS! My wifi now works.

    You were right - the device first needed to be uninstalled. I then downloaded the latest driver from the Acer website and it all seemed to work fine.

    Thank you so much for your continuous support on this issue. Hopefully I can enjoy Windows 8 now!
