    I went into driver manager and clicked properties and update driver but it told me the driver was the most recent version already. It's a edimax EW-7128g wireless card so googled it went to the edimax website and downloaded the windows 7 driver because there was no mention of windows 8. When I installed it it uninstalled the older version and I just installed the driver not the software too and it has worked.

    The ralink driver that was already installed is
    3.0.9.1 and the date 02/06/2010

    Can't find where the other driver has been installed to hence me explaining how I got it! Sorry!

    Welcome
    It is always best to find drivers in the way that you described. You get the most current when going to the website.

    It is best doing it that way but sometimes it's hard because they give you a massive list and it's sometimes not obvious which 1s you need! Like when I was trying to find the drivers for my asus motherboard!

    Try the free version of Driver Max. The free version is different in only that you can only install a few drivers a day.

    Cheers for the tip will do that! I downloaded driver manager and it told me all these drivers needed updating and then wouldn't let me download them!

    Are you saying that driver manager installed a newer driver with a newer date, but it should not have because it was meant for windows xp?

    No it was the free version of driver manager so it was a waste of time!

    The free version is just like the paid version, except for the daily limitation on new drivers.
