    Not working - Linksys USB Wireless-N adapter (AE2500)


    Hey all... Sooo I successfully installed Win 8, but can't get my USB wifi driver to work. I'm attempting to install the Windows 7 driver directly from Linksys--


    "Linksys AE2500 - There is no driver elected for the device information set or element"


    Anybody know a way around this? or if not.. Anyone know of a wireless adapter that WILL support the Win 8 beta?

    I have no idea how to fix your issue, but I use Belkins N150 wireless N network adapter and it works great, no setup or anything
