    Intellinet 150N Wireless PCI Card Issues

    Hey guys.

    I know this is a little specific but maybe someone has had similar problems with another card/driver. I built a new machine and was running Linux for awhile. Didn't like it, downloaded the windows 8 release preview. I formatted my hard drive and installed windows 8. When it booted up the first time I could see wireless networks but could not connect to them. I figured that was typical for a wireless card with no drivers installed. When I installed the drivers from the CD and restarted the computer, the wireless card was no longer visible. No wireless networks show up. I have tried uninstalling the drivers and the wireless card is still not visible. Anybody have any clues?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Instead of installing driver from cd/dvd you should try finding the driver online as it would be the most current version. These what I found...

    Alternatively you can usinstall driver and remove card and reboot, then re-add card and the install downloaded driver and see if that helps. Keep in mind this is still a beta version and it's still quirky. You could also try installing in in compatibility mode as well.

    Yeah, i tried the website's drivers with the same result. I emailed the company's tech support and they simply said there were no windows 8 divers.

    Maybe i don't understand compatibility mode... When i tell it to install as windows 7, first it wants to check I'm windows 8. Well it installs, but it doesn't work. So I never get the chance to "install using" windows 7.

    What are the odds this is resolved for the final release?
