Hi preeti19,

Please uninstall and then re-install the most update Wireless card drivers and check. If you have difficulty finding the drivers please reply with the Device Instance ID of the Wireless Card. To find the Device Instance ID of the wireless card in Device Manager:

1. Press and hold the Windows Key and then press the R key on the keyboard to launch Run Dialog Box.
2. Type "devmgmt.msc" and hit "Enter".
3. Expand "Network Adapters" and check if any wireless card is listed here. If any wireless card is not listed here, expand the "Unknown Device" and check.
4. Double click the listed Wireless Card.
5. Click the "Details" tab.
6. Select Device Instance Path or Device Instance Id (whichever is available for your version of Windows) from the drop down box.
7. Make a note of the Device Instance Path or Device Instance ID and add this in your reply.

If I may Zohaib, What OS? Do you have a network location set up when you make a new connection, work, public, home? In vista and window 7 you must set this setting to allow firewall to work properly.

Hi preeti19,

These are some of the very good points to check (suggested by ac3mark). On the software part if these settings are correct will definitely make good connection.

@preeti19 if you don't mind, I would like to know the Device Instance IDs of the three adapters listed. I will try to check if there is any know fixes available for your wireless card.

Please do write back.

Hi preeti19,

I am sorry for the delayed response. "PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_E042105B" is indeed the wireless adapter in your computer. Please uninstall the "Broadcom 802.11n Network adapter" and then download and install the drivers. You can download the matching drivers from here. Also you can find the drivers on the Acer's website.

Try to connect to the wireless networks after updating the drivers. If the computer still doesn't connect to the wireless networks, please try to restore your computer to an earlier date. Click here to find steps on how to perform System Restore in Windows 8.

Do reply with results.
