    I installed Windows 8.1 on my late 2012 MacBook Pro running OS X. The installation went fine, but the wireless driver was absent in the boot camp drivers provided. I found a Broadcom 802.11n driver on a forum somewhere. I installed it and I was able to detect networks through wi-fi. When I tried connecting however, it gave me a message reading "cannot connect to this network." I've tried with two different networks that work when I run the osX. Any advice?

    Can you hotspot your phone and see if it connects that way?

    I tried, but it didn't work. Thanks for the suggestion though. I got it to work I refreshed my PC, but then only to until the next time I restarted my computer or switched to Mac. I tried refreshing again, but it didn't work.
