LS800 with Windows 8 and wireless now working

I installed Windows 8 Dev Edition and had reported here an issue with a couple drivers not loading. In doing some research on the internal wireless card I finally found a driver that works from within Windows 8 itself, it had the driver all along. Steps:

  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Double-click on the network driver showing under Other devices.
  3. Click Update Driver.
  4. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
  5. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
  6. Scroll down and select Network adapters and click Next.
  7. Scroll down and select Atheros Communications, Inc.
  8. On the right select Atheros AR5004X and then Next.
  9. Install the driver and you should then have working wireless.

I was excited to finally get that working in Windows 8 so now I feel a bit more complete.
