Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-N Network Controller (SDIO) - AZUREWAVE

Hello,
I have a Tablet PC with Windows 8 Release Preview installed.
The Tablet PC is equipped with a x86 Intel Atom Z670 processor and the Marvell 88w8787 Wifi/Bluetooth chip.
(Also ref. as AZUREWAVE_AW-NM387 WiFi/Bluetooth)

Previously, Windows 7 installed with wifi connection was working good via the Marvell AVATAR Wireless-N Network Controller (SDIO) - Network adaptor driver installed. File version: 14.57.8025.39, dated: 02/29/2012.

After doing both a upgrade install(keeping Win7 files) and also a CLEAN install of Windows 8 onto this same Tablet PC, my Network Adaptor is stating errors, and not working.

Kindly, how do I go about fixing this problem?

Sincerely, HWayne.

Hello,
I'm still having trouble installing a driver that supports by x86 Intel/Atom Z670 Tablet PC running Windows 8.

The WLAN module inside my Tablet PC is from Azurewave.

To be specific, '88F105-012000 WLAN CARD.AW-NM387..802.11 b/g/n SDIO...W/BLUETOOTH(V3.0)..LEAD-FREE..AZUREWAVE'.

My Tablet PC wifi connection worked OK with Windows 7, but now fails with Windows 8.

Any advice and/or recommendation?

BTW, this is related to the earlier POST: Marvell AVATAR Wireless-N Network Controller (SDIO) - Network adaptor driver installed. File version: 14.57.8025.39, dated: 02/29/2012.

This driver installed and worked for Windows 7, but fails in Windows 8.
This driver is the driver that automatically gets identified by Windows UPDATE for my Tablet PC type.

Welcome to EightForums Hwayne

So far that I have experience lately most of the driver that I install, I notice that not ALL drivers (I will not say old version but later version ONLY for Win7) might not work properly when we use it in Win8.

For, manufacturers have built this drivers to RUN Win7 and there is no assurance even if you consider the platform of x32bit or x64bit. If you have install some of your drivers good to go but I know most of them might not work or can't be install.

The only help I can give you is to restore factory default setting of your tablet.

Do you have a resolution? Anyone out there does?

I have the exact same problem. My HW is ViewPad 10pi with same processor and WiFi

Viewpad 10pi / W8 / Marvell

I have 2 Viewpads 10pi from Viewsonic. Exactly the same problem and downloading the driver from the manufacturer's web doesn't change anything.
