I had the same problem.
The Network is not working because the Network driver is not compatible with Windows 8.1
I did this to get it to Work:
1: Rightclick the startmenu and click Device Manager
2: Search for something like Network.
3: Rightclick the driver inside the topic
4: Click on Update Driver
5: Click Search for updates online

Windows will now install the lastest update for your Network driver.
After it said Complete close Down the Device Manager
Now restart your computer. Then it should Work:)

As it won't connect item 5 should be search on this PC/laptop. Mine found a driver and when re-installed it worked so overall the solution is good.

This worked on my two Acer Aspires:
1. Hit the Windows button
2. Type in "Device Manager"
3. Select Device Manager
4. Click on to expand 'Network Adapters'
5. Right-click on Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter
6. Select 'Update Driver Software'
7. Select 'Browse my computer for driver software'
8. Select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'
9. Select 'Broadcome 802.11n Network Adapter (Broadcom)' - note NOT (Microsoft)
10. Select 'Next'
11. When done, select 'Close'

What do you do when your computer isn't connecting to the internet to look for the latest update?
