    Wireless driver wont work in windows 8.1 9471


    I installed Windows 8.1 build 9471 into my desktop. I use a TP Link TL-WN781ND wireless adapter to access my home network and the internet. I tried copying the drivers from Windows/System32/Drivres and installing them manually, I also downloaded the exe from the site but they still wouldnt connect. It would just say no connections found.
    Any Ideas?

    It's fixed my internet more than a few times.
    Delete the driver from the device manager.
    Restart your computer. If windows doesn't reinstall it, you can reinstall it.

    If there is a .inf file in the drivers you downloaded right click on it and install it that way
