    Wireless network card not finding my wireless network ?


    My wireless card in my Compaq Presario works fine and Windows 8 detects it and said it was compatible. For some strange reason though it's not working in Windows 8. It hasn't detected my wireless network. Currently I am connecting using a cable.
    The card is Qualcomm Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WIFI Adaptor.

    I am trying to do a Google search on this issue, is it me but is this device not compatible with Windows 8 despite Window 8 saying so? I have updated the drivers through Windows Update, but it still can't find my Wireless network even though Windows 7 did originally before my upgrade.

    If you're
    connected to a hotspot or domain network, contact the network administrator.
    Otherwise: 1. Unplug or turn off the device. 2. Once all of the lights on the
    device are off, wait at least 10 seconds. 3. Turn the device back on or plug it
    back into the power outlet. To restart a router or access point that has a
    built-in battery, press and quickly release the Reset
    button.
