    Windows 7: No Wireless Connection Available on Laptop - Drivers Missin


    I recently purchased an Acer Aspire M5-583p-6324. I went from Windows 8.1 > Ubuntu 14.04 for class, needed it to do Fortran on, and now I decided to go back to Windows 7 in order to do Java on and play some games. However, as was the case on Ubuntu, my wireless isn't working, and I can't seem to find any drivers for Windows 7. Any help?

    Here is the thread I made on Ubuntu forums in order to solve my previous issue: [SOLVED] No Wireless Connection on Fresh Install of Ubuntu

    Thanks in advance

    Try this, Go to start button right-click "computer", click "manage". a window will popup. something like this Windows 7: No Wireless Connection Available on Laptop - Drivers Missin-computer-20management_2.png
    Click "device manager" in the left, when clicked right click the top thing with your computer name then click "scan for changes". It should detect your wireless adapter then download a driver(s).
