    Default Windows 8 won't recognise my wireless device after upgrade from win 7

    Ok so on my MSI Ge60 laptop I was happily runnig on windows 7. but during the upgrade to windows 8 the installer i selected I wanted to keep windows settings and personal files and it prompted me to uninstall 2 intel pro wireless bluetooth adapters (I didnt take note of the specific name like an idiot) because it said they would not be compatible with windows 8. first of all I couldnt uninstall them properly, i tried ccleaner and winfixit and on my computer they were gone but the instaler still recognised them even after a reboot. So instead I selected "keep personal files only". and the install went ahead without a hitch

    now I have a lovely new windows 8 machine which won't recognise that it has wifi. not bluetooth, wifi. I have no options in network and sharing centre that relate to wifi at all and I cant see any wifi adapters in device manager. I ran speccy and it simply says under wifi info "wifi not enabled"

    please please please help
