    [Solved] install network driver, levelone WNC-301

    Microsoft has just released Windows 8 through our university
    So i downloaded and installed it ofcourse.

    But it wont install the network card drivers from win7 and ofcourse there are no drivers
    for windows 8 yet..

    I have allready tryed to force them on the computer by disableding the check via..

    1) Run Cmd as admin.

    2)type "bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS" and press enter,(without cotes)

    3)type "bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON" and press enter (without cotes)

    But all drivers i try, even tryed switching the netword adapter itself and using new drivers,
    but i ALWAYS get the same damn error

    Sorry for my english but this is a translation of the error (rougly)

    The hash for the file cannot be found in the catalog. The file is likely damaged or has been exposed to changes.

    And the only option i have to this is CLOSE..

    Any ideas how i install or force a compatable driver on a networks adapter
    make is

    Level one WNC-301 11g

    Any help would be appriciated..

    Have you tried installing the drivers in compatibility mode for Windows 7? The link below explains how to do this.

    Compatibility Mode - Use in Windows 8

    Yes indeed..

    But i found another solution, i simply got myself a new Networks adapter,
    Cisco Linksys WMP600N

    Installed the CD, which failed, but Win8 recognized the hardware and was able to use a generic driver
    then with a connection i got a working driver.

    So its all good Old netword adapter was just being a d***
