Acer 5600u windows 10

Aspire 5600U — upgraded to Windows 10 and now no WIFI drivers. Can anyone help.

Ok — I’ve contacted Microsoft and now Acer. No help. Basically, I upgraded to Windows 10 and my WIFI completely disapeared. When I go to Device Management and Network Adapters I have to select Show Hidden to see the 3 drivers that I’m guessing need to be working properly. They are all gray-ed out; when I try to update them it says that I have the correct drivers installed. Microsoft claims that Acer hasn’t updated these drivers for Windows 10 compatibilty. The Acer rep pretty much said the same — that my machine was not compatible with Windows 10. Are they freaking kidding. Is there anyway around this?? Any third party drivers or ways to make them work? Is anyone running this same machine (Aspire 5600U) on Windows 10 with WIFI working?

If anyone can help — I’d greatly appreciate it and consider you a full blown genius!

FAQ & Answers

can you please report the wifi adapter model listed on device manager?

Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Network Adapter

There’s also two others grayed-out:

Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter

Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter #2

Not sure what those are — guessing the above Qualcomm is most critical? At any rate — those are the three that I see if I select to show Hidden Files; all three are grayed-out.

download this driver, clicking on telecharger:

double click the downloaded file to extract the files, then run the install/setup .exe file.

reboot and check if the wifi is available.

No luck.

Downloaded, extracted, ran executable and installed. It detected a previous version so the first time I just chose to update. No changes after a reboot so I ran the executable again and this time chose to completely uninstall the previous version first. Still nothing after a reboot. When I go back into Device Manager and Network Adapaters the same three are still grayed-out.
