Windows 7: Aspire E-15 indicates no wireless adapter found

Aspire E-15 indicates no wireless adapter found

On a new Acer Aspire E-15 which had Windows 8.1 pre-installed. I reformatted hard drive and installed Windows 7 Pro x64. Installation did not show any errors during/after install but when I attempt to go to Control Panel - Network & Sharing and try to setup a new wireless connection I receive a message stating no network adapter found.

I assume that a driver needs to be installed but how to do that if I can't get connectivity? Where should I look for an appropriate driver?

Thanks, Tom
