    Problem accessing Wifi after downloading Windows 8.1


    Hi. I've spent a whole day trying to restore my Wifi connection after downloading 8.1. I've looked at forums all over the web and despite many people having the same problem, I haven't found a solution that works for me. Any help would be much appreciated; I'm tearing my hair out!

    You need to reinstall your Wifi drivers. Check Acer's Support site, and download the proper driver for your computer.

    Thanks so much. I downloaded the files for the driver from Acer's website and when I ran the application file, hey presto!

    I did get a 'compatibility error' message, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this has solved the problem.


    Cheers. Thanks again.
