I have just installed Windows 8 on my Acer Aspire 5750, and my wireless adaptor has gone!? I have looked in the device manager and there are three options, Ethernet, debug and Qualcomm Atheros AR5B97, but it has a yellow ! on the symbol. I have tried updating it and it keeps telling me it cannot load the correct drivers?

That usually indicates a problem with the driver getting loaded properly. Sounds like you need to download and install it manually.

You can get the Atheros driver directly from them at: http://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php?chi...
