    After installation of Tp-link TG-3269 network card Window


    Hi all
    I decided to try a new network card due to problems with my onboard one, got a TP-Link TG-3269 after reading various reviews. most saying it installed in Win 7 with no problems or driver needed.Disabled onboard lan in bios, rebooted with new card in place, but card not recognised in device manager. Surprisingly, when I started windows troubleshooter it started working, it had reused my old onboard drivers even though it's in a PCI slot. but still not recognised in device manager.
    Hope someone can help

    If it does not appear in your device manager under network devices then look for it under ' other pci devices '

    Look for an exclaimation or a downarrow (indicating disabled)

    right click that device and update those drivers..

    if you can send a SCREENCAP of your device manager we can show you which your devices are, please expand the network adapters tree..

    When in Device Manager try going to the top of the page and hit the View button then click on "show hidden devices" it may show up on the list but probably isn't using the correct driver.

    Try going to the Windows update Center using the wireless connection and see if they have some Windows 8 specific drivers for this Ethernet adaptor.

    Ive had this issue before turned out to be a shorted ethernet cable, it was a bad patch the verizon guy made. It was obvious the crimp was pinching the wires instead of the insulation..
