    wifi network available but not connecting....


    I'm using win8 release preview. It shows available WiFi networks to me but when i try to connect it shows cannot connect.
    I have tried reinstalling WiFi drivers in win 7 compatibility mode, after this step it connects to network for 2 min or so and then disconnects and doesn't allow me to connect again. This happens every time I reinstall my drivers.
    what should I do? please help

    Windows 8

    Bumping to say that I bought Windows 8 and it created this problem for me, where the release preview did not. Strange.

    I can see my wireless network but not connect. I ran through all of the built in diagnostic tools to no avail. Device Manager said my drivers were up to date. My other devices can connect to wifi fine so I know the problem isn't with my router. Please help!

    Hi jakesully,
    Welcome to the forums, try different drivers and see, sometimes older drivers work better than newer ones.
