    Cant connect to internet after uninstalling Qualcomm WIN8


    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me with this dilemma? So I got an Inspiron 15R and upgraded to Windows 8.1 and I noticed that the bluetooth driver for my Jam Classic wasn't working. I looked for hours and I found a post detailing another substitute driver and I decided to install it (Qualcomm Antheros). It worked for a bit but then it decided to crap out on me after I rebooted my system. So I uninstalled the driver and apparently it took the internet with it because my laptop can't find any wireless networks now and what's worse is that I've been using my Microsoft Account to login and I don't have any other accounts on the start screen to login with. I basically can't do anything.

    Hey mate,

    You'll need to post the specs of your computer. Bottom of your post, click 'my system specs', and update them. Then we can direct you where you need to go

    Hi! Sorry about that. Don't know if this is enough but I updated what I can dig up at the moment.

    Almost. Use this tool, it will help a bunch: System Info - See Your System Specs - Windows 7 Help Forums
    - You run it, but you wont need to remove it afterward. Also, it works for windows 8 & 8.1

    Windows 8.x has a known issue with Bluetooth adapters not working properly. Even some computers running Windows 7 SP1 has the same issue. You will need to download the original driver from the computer manufacturer support site, and install that. Do not let Microsoft/Windows update change the driver. That is another issue that I have come across also. The Microsoft signed drivers are causing issues with certain hardware.
