Worked fine in RP.
Tried Win 7 drivers, compatibility mode, etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.
Dev Manager says "This device cannot start. (code 10)
[operation failed]
The requested operation was unsuccessful.

Vizo - Thin, Vizio has no beta drivers, can't find any on Qualcomm either....

ruined my day. Been flying find on Win 8 all along....

Tried 8's test mode / disable driver signing mode (Not sure how to do that with 8, I think mashing shift + F8 at boot enters safe mode list)

I've got the same problem. My VIZIO Ultrabook was working fine with the consumer preview, but I updated to RTM and no luck. I dug up an HDMI to Ethernet adapter I had and I can get connectivity that way, but no luck finding a new driver. Keep me posted if you find a solution.

Sony Vizio? You're confused.

I'm sure the drivers will be out by general release, but it sucks that they don't work now :(

One clue, with RP install, the device shows up in device manager with as not having a driver at all, then I can install the Win 7 driver to get it to work.

In Win 8 RTM, it shows up in device manager as having detected a driver but the driver not working properly. Hope a bunch of Qualcomm people having same issue get to this thread and pump it up so we can get it resolved asap. Vizo, Vaio, same chip probably.

Uninstall the device and uninstall the driver.

Then attempt to install the Windows 7 driver.

You can find unofficial Atheros driver releases pretty easy on Google or whatever, though. They often work better than the OEM provided stuff.

Sorry it's NOT a Sony - its just a Viizio , my bad . I was thinking Sony due to the large Sony display next to the Vizio laptops . I'm an idiot

I had the same problem with my Acer Aspire V3-571G-6602 with the same wifi adapter (AR5BWB222). I was able to get the driver to install successfully by doing the following:

Open computer management
Clicked on device manager
double clicked Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Network Adapter
selected driver tab
selected Update Driver...
selected Browse My Computer...
selected Let me pick from a list of device drivers...
selected Have Disk...
navigated to the directory where the win 7 driver was and installed it
(for me the path was C:\Users\myname\Documents\Drivers\Wireless LAN_Atheros_10.0.0.38_W7x64_A\WLAN_Atheros_10.0.0.38_W7x64\ndis6xWin7\netathrx)

driver date: 2/15/12
driver version: 10.0.0.38

Hey all! Exact same problem as you (Windows 8 RTM on Vizio CN15-A2). I was able to get the WiFi working with this driver: http://www.driversdown.com/drivers.asp?ID=125459&brNum=3&show=0 (I used the installer bundled with the driver but I imagine it would work via Device Manager as well.)

Hope this helps!

Thank you Tango209 for your guide, it worked for my Aspire V3-471G. Although I had to locate on a different directory. Re-installing it works.

Weird - I use Atheros exclusively as the product is well supported in Linux and never had any issues.
