    Tp link ma180 cellular modem - is it compatible with WIN8?


    Hi
    I've bought this modem cellular mentioned in the title (tp link ma 180) and tried to install it on a computer with windows 8 OS. I was able to install the driver and the software that controls the modem seem to work fine but when I try to connect to the internet it shows a yellow warning symbol and saya 'limited'.
    So I checked to see if maybe it's a comatible problem and i saw that on the box it doesn't mentioned that it's compatible with WIN8 (just xp, vista and 7), but when I checked this link in German it says that it does support (in the end of the page, under the category of 3G modems).
    So I wonder - A. Does anybody know if it compatible with WIN8? Should I believe what's written on the box or in the link above?
    B. From what I've described above (driver and the software installed well and there's only a warning symbole) , does it sound like a compatible problem or is it different kind of problem?
    Thanks in advance

    There's a k9 on this computer, is it possible that this is the problem?
