wireless adaptor

  1. #11

    No problems showing in the ipconfig but I need the specs on the router such as, make, model, version number so as to track down firmware or check for compatibility. Many problems in this area with Windows 8 due to changes in the network stack.

    It would also be helpful if you could install the InSSIDer for home software and post a screen shot of the results here. This will give me a picture of the wireless network signal and more info.

    I'm not seeing any real problems here besides the channel overlap so experimenting with a different channel may help.

    You should go to the Acer site and look up drivers for your model number which is actually Acer Aspire V3-571, the latest drivers for Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 may help.

    hi chev65

    thanks very much for all of your help and advice.

    Can you please tell me what channel overlap is, and how do I try another channel.

    Hi Calmat,
    Go to Device Manager(Right click bottom left corner), expand Network Adapters, right click the wireless adapter and uninstall. Then install the new driver.

    hi brummyfan

    I did what you told me, but when I tried to install it says the newest driver is already installed.

    I have just had another disconnection, why is this happening.

    After uninstalling, right click your downloaded driver and click "Run as Admin" without rebooting the PC. The details in the link for another make but the procedure is same.
