  1. this has nothing to do with windows 8. please just upload a driver for this and we can figure it out ourselves if you do not have time for such an over-demanding request.


  2. Cant get it to work with windows 8.1, have written tech support 22 times and done all they have recommended and nothing. Still in a loop, and it doesn't work at all.


  3. The win 7 driver seems to be working just fine for me on Win 8, give it a try! Just manually tell your computer you'd like to supply the driver for the adapter and navigate to where the win 7 driver is (for me it was a usb flash drive) and it will install it super fast and you'll be online


  4. Using the win 7 driver on my win 8 machine gave me absolutely no trouble at all. Don't run the win 7 driver setup file, that will error out. But the good news is that most driver setup files install all kinds of useless software anyway..Instead, open Device Manager and manually supply the win 7 driver for the adapter. It installed super quick and I was on my network immediately running Windows Updates.Give it a try! I hope it works for you both
