    Win 8.1 x64 Not Showing 2nd Network Adapter In Connections


    I bought an external USB WiFi adapter (Alfa AWUS036NHA) a few months ago, for the purpose of using it for penetration testing, studying networking and Internet security, fooling around with WiFi hacking, and just generally being able to get much stronger signals and throughput, etc. It's supposed to be one of the top-rated adapters on the market for these purposes and retails at around $40 USD online. And a wide variety of screw-on antennas can be used with it, from straight antennas to flat-panel antennas. I really like it and it's been very reliable and issue-free for me in the past.

    But the issue is that it isn't showing up in the Connections list when I click on the WiFi icon in the Taskbar. It does, however, show up in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections as "Wi-Fi 2". It used to work on Win7 and Win8 and showed up in both my adapters list and the Taskbar as "Wi-Fi 2" (my internal WiFi card was displayed as "Wi-Fi" and the external card was displayed as "Wi-Fi 2" in the Connections list), but I have never been able to get it to work in 8.1. It simply won't show up in Connections no matter what I do. I can disable and enable the adapter via the Control Panel, but when I click on the Connections icon I only see my internal adapter. Normally I would see both adapters, and should even be able to disable the internal in favor of using the external, since an OS can only be connected to the Internet at any given time with one adapter, and obviously I would want to use the better of the 2 in certain situations.

    It came with a driver disc, I installed the drivers from that and nothing so far. I've also tried downloading the latest drivers from the Alfa website, as well as from ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????) . But still nothing. There is no Win8/8.1-specific driver for the device, only for 7, but that should work fine, in my experience. The blue light on the adapter also blinks like it should and it shows up in Device Manager listed as "Atheros AR9271 Wireless Network Adapter". Device Manager displays the drivers as being installed and says the device is working properly. I also have no issues using it in Linux distros like BackTrack and Kali. And I have tried installing the drivers in Win7 compatibility mode and with admin priviledges. I have also tried manually installing the drivers via Device Manager. As well as searching Windows Update to see if anything is anything is available for it, nothing comes up.

    I should also note that when I install the drivers it asks me if I want to install the Client Utilities and driver, or just the driver alone. Choosing the first option results in a BSOD on reboot, this also happened with 8 but not with 7. It's presumably due to the Client Utilities, which from past experience I can tell are not necessary/essential to the operation of the device, it only needs the drivers.

    Being able to use this card is essential for me, but I really do hate the thought of rolling back to 8 or even 7 just to get it to work. I've been running 8.1 since the beta and now have the stable version, nearly everything works fine except for this one niggling issue and a few other minor things.

    I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me get this working once and for all. I will provide any additional info if requested.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    All of the settings listed from Network.txt look ok.

    Since the driver is designed for Windows 7 it hasn't added the correct information for the adapter to function correctly.

    Use NetSetMan to configure the adapter with the settings for your network. Once you have the basic settings in place, click the Activate button to apply.

    Next, open Tools from the menu bar > select NSM Wi-Fi Management. Create a profile for the network adapter & click connect.
