    Wireless and Bluetooth Issues


    So I bought this wireless game controller for my pc. I didn't really think it would work but I figured Id give it a shot. I plugged it in at home and set to trying to getting it connected. It didn't seem to be connecting to any bluetooth network, so I looked for bluetooth in control panel and it didn't exist. I found out how to turn on bluetooth, but it seems in my 'Change PC Settings' menu there is no Wireless option. I went to the windows 8 metro thing and searched for 'wireless' and again nothing comes up at all. I checked my network and sharing center and then to change adapter settings and Ive got my Qualcomm Atheros AR922x Wireless Network adapter there and the device is working fine, just not connected to anything. Does that even work for bluetooth and connecting wireless peripherals?Anyway, I dont know what to do. I figured it wouldn't work out like I said, but I at least want to know why it's not working out. Anyway, any help with this would be awesome.
