    Bios Upgrade Then no internet

    Ok so I did have a bunch of BSOD's every day well I updated BIOS and replaced a bad ram stick. Well now I have no internet. I have a little internet 100kb/s-300kb/s before the update and through minimal fixes I get 1.2-8mb/s.
    So here's my system:

    AMD FX-8120
    ASUS M5A970 Evo
    Radeon HD 6870
    Razer Naga
    Windows 8 Pro
    Patriot 8gb
    TP-Link 300mp/s Wi-Fi adapter TL-WN822N - Welcome to TP-LINK

    To make things easier I'll tell you what I've done:

    Re-Installed Windows 8 over and over
    Ran the install uninstall USB Driver Wifi cycle
    Clean Installed Everything
    Disabled the "Allow computer to turn off device"
    Tried the internet repair
    Checked TSL and the other Protocols
    Reset the Router
    Hard hooked up the computer to the router
    Tested Wi-Fi USB on other computers worked fine
    **None of the above worked**

    My temp fix was this

    CMD admin

    netsh winsoc reset catalog

    netsh int ip reset reset.catalog hit

    and after restart I'd get my old internet speeds back, well then Windows updated, my speed went away, well then I re did that, had my speed for about two hours and now its gone again. What are my options people?

    I see where you said "Ran the install uninstall USB Driver Wifi cycle" but I'm not quite sure what that all entails. So did you download and install the Win8 compatible driver for your TP Link (first Win8 driver was just released for v3 on 7/2/2013)?

    My version is V.2 I forgot to mention that, it only has a beta driver, no official driver. By the cycle I mean Install drivers, uninstall doing that process repeatedly.

    Thanks for those clarifications; however, I do find it very strange that the driver for v2.1 has been in beta for over 7 months now. With that said, I would be contacting their support group to confirm you hardware version has been tested and is known to be stable when connected to a Win 8 installation. Note: I see where you said tested on other computers but I don't see where it was specifically tested on another Win 8 rig. good luck.
