    Rosewill RNX-N150HG Drivers


    My usb 2.0 wireless N adapter doesn't work with Windows 8 Release, although the Windows 7 drivers worked with the developer preview.


    Is there any way I can get this to work, I can't connect via ethernet.

    I have the same problem. Although I've only tried with the RTM version. If you try to install the driver the same way you do in windows 7 via the setup.exe in compatibility mode of win7 then it will detect the OS to be XP and will give you the option to either install with the wireless client or just the drivers. I tried to just install just the drivers and it did complete the installation but the usb adapter still didn't detect that the drivers were installed. I'm guessing in that case it installed the XP drivers. So if you select to install with the wireless client it will give the you the "irql_not_less_or_equal" error upon restart.

    So since none of that above worked I decided to go through the device manager. So I put the folder for Windows 7 x64 from the installation cd on the desktop and removed the cd from the computer just to make sure it wouldn't try to use the XP driver. It detected it and tried to install it but came up with an error of "The hash for the file is not present in the specified catalog file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering." I've also tried the driver from the Rosewill site both version 1 and 1.1 and both got the same error.I won't be using windows 8 on my desktop until they release a new driver or I'm able to just use ethernet.

    Same problem here... same results. I contacted Roswill by email and got the standard answer: "Windows 8 hasn't been released... no driver available, etc."

    I also tried an ASUS USB-N13 adapter; didn't work either (unsigned driver, wouldn't install).

I have a Konica Minolta PagePro 1350W laser printer. I had trouble finding printer drivers for Window 7 and now for Windows 8. If I recall correctly the Win 7 drivers came from Europe and I found them thru a forum. The printer EOM seems to always be behind. Anyone have any suggestions?
