Hardware Drivers :: Linksys Wireless G Card V4.1 Drivers For Windows 8.1?
Jan 4, 2014
I just upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Windows 7, and I cannot get a wireless connection. I have a Linksys Wireless G Card v4.1, and I've attempted to use multiple different drivers, but none of them work. At one point I was able to get a "Network Controller" to show up, but after rebooting my computer, it went away (and I was unable to get it again). Is it possible to get an internet connection with my card and Windows 8.1? Or will I have to stick with Windows 7?
I downloaded the drivers for windows 7 x64bit for the SD card reader in my system. I have installed Windows 8.1 Pro x64.
I had the same issue with Windows 8 and now that I have settled on 8.1 need to fix my card reader. Funny thing is that the drivers from Microsoft load (2006) and all devices look fine in Device Manager.
Even after installing the link from Acer and even searching around and getting other ones from Lenovo, HP still no go.
My internal multi card reader has been working fine for just under a year but just recently it has stopped recognising SD cards. When I insert a card it normally opens an explorer window but now it does nothing and does not show in file explorer.
Though if I click on .. file explorer/manage/disk management .. it then opens an explorer window for the card.
I have the setting in autoplay - memory card and removable drive set to open explorer.
I just purchased new Insignia multi-card reader connected to machine, got the windows connected sound, but nothing in the windows exporer pane (what was My computer in XP and Win 7)...went ahead and connected my cf card... still nothing, should show Nikon D3 (all may cards are named for the camera they get shot in ) ... ???
card is a transcend 16gb 1000x ... computer is win 8.1 pro 64bit, 16gb ram, processor: AMD a10-7850KAPU with Radeon R7 Graphics, Motherboard: Asus A88X-PRO
Where to get the relavent OpenGl Drivers from for windows 8 ? Apps designed for Windows 8 are fine , anything which did play on Windows 7 (minecraft for example) just gets the same error message, "Bad videocard drivers! failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode ".
I bought a Micro SD Card 32GB from eBay. I am trying to copy files to it so I can transfer them from my PC to my Laptop, however whenever it finishes copying files and I plug it into my Laptop, it needs formatting. I have tried copying files to it and them plugging it back into my PC but it says it needs formatting again. It is annoying me because I am trying to copy a disk image which is 16gb and it takes hours to copy to the Micro SD Card but when i unplug it from my PC it suddenly needs formatting. I am using NTFS Format, i cant copy my files on Fat32. It also doesn't let me format the card, its saying 'Windows was unable to complete the format'. This Micro SD Card is basically unusable.
I am trying to print a gift card from the internet that someone sent me from Facebook. It is telling me I cannot print until I use One Note one time. I don't want One Note.... How can I get this off my computer so I can print. This is maddening... I buy a printer and computer and can't print until I use their product?
OK so I right clicked and made my printer the default and it still won't print. I ended up thinking I was deleting the print queue and my whole printer disappeared. Do I have to now reinstall my printer??????
Just upgraded to Win 8.1 Pro from Win 8 on a Dell Latitude E6530. Everything was working fine; post upgrade, system does not recognize any of my SD cards upon insertion. [Don't even see a drive letter show up.] All other peripheral storage devices are fine.
In the device manager, under memory technology devices, I have Realtek PCIE CardReader Properties displayed twice. The two locations are: PCI bus 2, device 0, function 0; and PCI bus 2, device 0, function 1. Dell offered a driver update for the cardreader which I installed. Only 1 of these 2 actually updated.
My question is do I need to update both or is one enough?
I'm using Windows 8 x64, all updated, which had been working without problem for about 8 months now.
I noticed my internel card reader drives (9 pin USB header) kept disappearing and reappearing quickly, in both My Computer, and Device Manager. So I assumed it was dying and bought a new one, but it too did the same thing, so assumed it must be the USB connecter dying, and left it unplugged, and orderd an external card reader (yet to arrive).
Sadly my USB flash drives and USB hard drives started doing the same thing, front and back ports, these drives will disappear and reappear a few times then work as normal, weird thing is my USB printer, mouse, keyboard, and Sansa Clip+ work fine.
I tried testing in WinPE v4, and Linux (Ubuntu LiveCD) and everything seems to be working fine, including the internel card reader. So I reinstalled Windows 8 after trying fixes like uninstalling the USB Root entries in Device Manager, and messing with the USB power saving options in Windows, even though they're at the defaults and never caused problems before, but the internel card reader was doing the same thing again before even doing any updates, or installing drivers.
I have found a workaround for the reader, if I disable it within Device Manger before putting a card in, and then enabling the device it works, but once ejected it goes back to disappearing and reappearing again.
I have a newly home built MSI AM1i motherboard and have it running fine with Windows 8.1. I am trying to expand the number of SATA ports it has (comes with only 2). The mobo has a mini-PCIe card slot.
I purchased a AsMedia 106x, 2-port, mini-PCIe card (had to use a ribbon-cable extender to get it connected).
That all appears to be fine. I struggled a bit with drivers, but eventually found a Windows 7 AsMedia 106x driver set. Loaded that, seems ok.
Problem: When I go to device mgr, it does not see the added 2-ports. When I first boot up, during the black-screen phase, it does report that the AsMedia device is loading and will actually find/name a hard drive that I attach to one of the new ports. It then almost looks like it will load windows, give the nice little blue windows 8 flag and just sits there. I can hear a drive cycle every 2-3 seconds, but nothing.
I eventually have to hit the power button to shut down. If I disconnect the drive added to the new card, it will start up. The AsMedia device looks to load during a black-screen phase, but reports no device found, and then loads Win 8 Correctly. When I get in, again, no SATA ports shown for the new device.
I am trying to install a graphics card in my desktop pc. The heat sink on the card blocks the SATA port that the DVD drive is plugged into (SATA1) so I've switched the DVD drive to SATA2. The drive is now showing as connected to port2 in the BIOS, but in windows (Windows 8 64-bit) it isn't detecting the DVD drive at all? I've seen other posts about this on the internet suggesting to add a line to the registry, but I've done that and it doesn't solve the problem.
I have a Asus T100 tablet with 32GB SSD. I bought a 64GB SD card to augment the storage on the tablet. The problem I am having is that the SD card disconnects after a few minutes of no activity, I then have to take it out of the tablet and pout it back in. I then have the folder in my C Drive again. How do I prevent the SD card from disconnecting so that I can use it as additional storage?
After the most recent update from Windows Store for Windows 8.1 Pro, my Intel Wireless drivers got busted. I could only connect to the Internet via the Ethernet cable and no matter how hard I try re-installing/uninstalling the drivers for the wireless drivers, I still get the same outcome.
In Device Manger, I checked the listing for Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection.In the Properties menu, I get this message:
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.
I went to install software from Intel's website for diagnosing the wireless driver/connection status, so I ran Intel PROSet/WIreless Tools, and after clicking Diagnose > Run Tests for Hardware Test, I get this message:
Wireless Hardware is not bound to transport driver. My wi-fi switch on the left side of my laptop is already turned on. I switched it off, uninstalled and deleted the driver and restarted the laptop to see if I could reinstall. Upon turning back the switch on after logging into my Windows account, I still get the same outcome: code 12.
I just bought a Dell Inspiron 3537 with 500 gb hard drive capacity, 4 GB RAM, no graphics card and came with UBUNTU as its OS. So I made a clean install of Windows 8.1 pro myself. All the drivers that have been provided by the site installed perfectly, except for the 1705 wireless and bluetooth driver. It says that the driver isnt for my platform .. wth :@I even tried checking my drivers via Intel and it says that it doesnt recognize my wireless card.
I just recently bought a new HTPC server and installed Windows 8.1 on it. Everything seems to work great except my USB mouse and keyboard. The range of these wireless devices dropped to just about one meter. They work further away if I lift them high in the air but from waist level they only work from very close ranges. Before they used to work perfectly from distances up to 5 meters.
What's odd is that the USB recievers are in the exact same spots as they were in my old computer. I have an extender cable and a hub so there are no obstacles between the recievers and the devices. I'm not sure whether this is because of Windows 8 or because of the new hardware. My previous computer was a laptop running Win7 but the new one is a desktop. The devices seemed to work bad even in BIOS so I suspect it's the hardware.
I have installed latest drivers, replaced batteries and tried different positions for the recievers but nothing seems to fix this issue. I have not added any new wireless devices in the household.
I have a Wireless Presenter. It comes with a USB receiver and the presenter device. No driver software or any app provided. Simple plug-n-play and works fine on my PC. I need an app to configure the device...a Software (which will work in Win-8 64 bit) that will allow me to customize the control keys of the Presenter. Meaning via that software I can configure the vol up control of the presenter to fast forward a movie playing on my PC.
I have a new PC that a friend built for me, I've noticed that the wireless receivers for my keyboard, mouse and wifi aren't working properly when plugged into any USB ports (front or back, 2.0 or 3.0). The range for the keyboard/mouse is awful and wifi connection is very slow if it connects at all.
However, all peripherals work correctly when plugged into a powered USB hub, the range for keyboard/mouse is huge and internet/download speed is fantastic.
Everything is up to date and was installed correctly. Having a couple of forums and speaking to Asus, I think it's a power issue. I arranged an RMA but the problem persists with the new motherboard.

All of a sudden my wireless printer has stopped scanning i just get a message saying no scanner detected it is a hp110a model. I have uninstalled and installed it a few times now but still not working it is printing ok.
I have a Brother HL 2270DW printer in one room of my house. Each of my two Win7 machines, all in different rooms, print to this printer wirelessly with no problems. However, my new Dell One 2020 detects the the printer as a wireless printer but reports something like 'Driver Unavailable' in Settings/Devices. How do I go about making a driver available? I have the latest Brother drivers on my HD but can't seem to figure out how to install them under Win 8. The CD that came with the printer has only very old, out of date drivers.
I tried to update my driver for my wireless card (Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230). Basically, I've been getting a number of different errors and then the BSOD from the Bad Pool thing to others everytime I try to:
- update the driver (through network & sharing and also win update)
- uninstall the driver
- disable the wireless adapter
It will also randomly shut down and give me the BSoD every few hours without doing anything other than surfing on firefox. I've attached the logs as directed in the sticky
Windows detects my Ricoh AC104 on a wireless network but insists it's an HP 5Si MX and installs that driver. When it adds the printer, it loads the driver automatically and without choice or prompt. Perhaps the misidentification has something to do with the printer driver in between (Hawking HMPS1U). I need to force it to use the printer driver from Ricoh, but I've had no luck so far. Some things I've tried:
1. There's an installation program with the Ricoh driver, but it doesn't see the printer on a wireless network.
2. Going to the advanced options for the printer on the device manager, I can see the driver info but Windows will not permit changes. I tried as Administrator also. No difference.
3. Attempting to update the driver just leads to Windows telling me the (wrong) driver is up to date.
I have an HP m6-k015dx and it has an intel centrino 2230 wifi card in it. I also have an old, netgear wna 1100 usb wireless adapter. The wireless usb adapter I have gets extremely better wifi connection that the internal adapter and the signal strength on the networks won't fluctuate. Are there any settings I can change on the intel adapter, or can I buy a new internal adapter to replace the intel to get better reception?
