    Tethered hotspot driver Sprint Sierra Overdrive


    My Sprint Overdrive router connects but the thered usb connection to my desktop has stopped working.There is the yellow exclamation point in device manager but I am unable to update a missing driver.
    How do I trouble shoot and fix this?

    Welcome to EightForums dkisling

    Do you still have the CD Driver of Sprint Overdrive router!? Kindly install using the CD, if the exclamation mark didn't disappear in the device manager try to visit the link of the manufacturer's website to get the latest driver for your router.

    Let us know once you have tried my suggestion.

    I didn't have a disk-the software installs from the units internal memory.
    I found the installation folder in my old Win 7 directory,ran that then installed drivers from another win 7 folder-the combo of these two did the trick.
    The questions remains where are the Win 8 drivers and installation software? Neither Sprint nor Sierra has any support for Win 8.

    For sure, Sierra do not have the support driver for Win8 and still Win8 OS do not have it's official release. Your ISP needs a lot of technical review's to work with the new OS.
