    Are you using any third party security/antivirus program?

    Nope, it was a fresh install of Windows 8

    You need to burn a DVD if you haven't done it already, then do refresh with this Tutorial and see whether it resolves the problem:

    Well, I didn't have Windows 8 on disc, so I had to re-install back to Windows 7, install the Wireless Networking Card and then download the Windows 8 ISO and burn it to disc. Then I updated so it kept my settings, and this time Windows 8 let me use the card for internet access.

    Still have no idea why it suddenly works, it must have kept some settings from Windows 7, even though I used the exact same driver for bother versions of Windows.

    Thanks for the help
