In windows 8 (64bit) I can't connect to a new wireless network. I can find them but when I click on a particular network the "connect" button does not appear. It used to work, so I have no idea what's wrong. If I try to "Set up a new connection" via the "Network and sharing center" no wireless networks show up at all. Wired connections still work fine. My computer is about half a year old ASUS S400C.

Just a friendly suggestiong, we try not to use direct links like these too often because in a year or so, it could be dead. – Moses Sep 8 '13 at 1:35
Thanks but the wireless network adapter is Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG. I reinstalled the corresponding driver but the problem is still there. – Jan Sep 8 '13 at 1:52
