    Help with Windows 8 and wireless adapters

    Hello everybody, I just bougth a desktop (Compaq CQ2930EA) and windows 8 is the default OS. I also have a wireless dual band usb adapter (TP-LINK model no. TL-WDN3200). I try to conect to the WiFi and the result is limited access. I already tried to fix it with:
    - the trubleshoot
    - use the comands to reset the winsock catalog and the ict.
    - and also to unistall the device and install it again.
    anybody have any suggestion that I can try?
    Thanks a lot

    Installing the latest Windows 8 driver for your TL-WDN3200, should help.

    If you are still having problems after the driver update please post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all from this machine.

    From this, you aren't getting anything from the router.

    You should reset the router and go through the set up procedure again.
