WiFi is not working when upgraded the OS to Windows 8.1

Q: WiFi is not working when upgraded the OS to Windows 8.1

Hi All,

Recently I have upgraded my Lenovo G580 laptop from windows 8 to windows 8.1. After up-gradation Wifi is stop working. I have checked the WIFI device driver(Broadcom 802.11n) in device manger and it is showing working fine but in the Networks section the Wifi is showing disabled.

I have search a lot but not find any solution. Please help me to find the solution for the issue.

I am attaching the screen shot of the device driver property and the my network panel.


Preferred Solution: WiFi is not working when upgraded the OS to Windows 8.1

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: WiFi is not working when upgraded the OS to Windows 8.1


Have you downloaded the driver for Windows 8.1 at the Broadcom site?

If that didn't work, you might want to try the Program Compatibility Assistant and use the Windows 7 Driver, instead of the Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.

I just upgraded my Windows XP Toshiba Satellite laptop to Windows 7 and now the sound card, and the wifi feature (where it looks for signals) does not work! Is there a way to fix this, or maybe even revert back to XP. I didn't make a back-up disc.. but if there is a way to do so, I'd like to. Thanks!

After my upgrade to Windows 10 on my HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 CTO Quad Edition Entertainment Notebook, the Wifi is no longer working ... in the sense that it does not find my Wifi network. I believe, that technically, the dv6t is not supported by HP for Windows 10 but everything thing else seems to work albeit a bit differently at times.  For instance, the WiFi but no longer toggles the WiFi on/off but now turns Airplane mode on/off. In my office I am most always on my wired network so this is not an issue but certainly will be when I am not in the office. The driver is at the latest available (for Windows 7) from HP so I'm not sure this is a driver issue or something else. Any ideas or has anyone else had this issue on a dv6t? I should also mention that Bluetooth no longer works either ... service will not start.

A:Upgraded my DV6 to Windows 10 and now the WiFi does not work

TBiggi1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I had EXACTLY the same problem on my DV6 laptop -- after I upgraded it to Win10.  Despite pushing the WiFi key time after time, it would always stay orange and the WiFi never worked. But ... to fix this, I had to do the "upgrade" again -- and do two things very differently ... 1: Prepare for clean-install:If, after the upgrade, your PC is only partially functioning, that means that the Upgrade did not go well and stuff is still there from the prior OS corrupting the functionality of Win10. You MIGHT be able to fix this by doing a clean-install of Win10. Problem is that a clean-install often does not recognize the prior activation, even though it should. So, you need to do 2( below BEFORE you do the clean-install: 2) Create a file needed to reactivate Win10 after the clean-install BEFORE you do the upgrade, follow these instructions from the community Win10 forums about creating a genuineticket.xml file: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/23354-clean-install-windows-10-directly-without-having-upgrade-fi... You will need this later to activate your Win10 pc after the clean-install. NOTE: I did the clean-install, and even though the product-key was SUPPOSED to work to activate Win10, it did not. And, calls to MS about this were wastes of time -- since the MS idiots said I could not activate Win10 with a Win7 product key!! What DID work was using the genuineticket ap... Read more

We did a recovery back to factory settings on Windows 8.1 due to problems we were having.  We then updated to Windows 10.  The windows that it opens to after putting my Microsoft password in is the old "desktop" from Windows 8.  It is not working properly at all.  There is no place for apps like on Windows 10 that comes with a new computer.  Can anyone help. You have to right click the windows button in the left hand corner to even get to an area where you can get on the web.  There was a search area that was to the right of the windows button, but you could not type anything in the box.

I bought a Gateway E56R41u to replace my Acer netbook. I'm really happy with this machine. However, I downloaded the free upgrade to Windows 8.1 and my audio quit working. I've downloaded all the drivers that I could find and nothing works. Is there a driver for another machine that will work with my Gateway?

A:Realtek HD Audio stopped working after I upgraded Windows

There is a generic driver available from RealTek, but if you have reinstalled the correct driver from Gateway, I doubt that the direct from RealTek will help.

Are there any other problems that you are aware of, after the 8.1 update? I don't recall this being a problem with audio.

Go to the Device Manager and display what is listed in the Sounds Video and Game Controllers section. Post back on what is listed there, including any error codes. Better yet, post a screen shot of that section.

This happened when I first upgraded from Vista to 7 32-bit last year, when the front output jack stopped working, and I ended up getting an extension cord to travel from the rear port.

Now I've upgraded again, and none of them work. I've got up to date Realtek codecs.

Any help is appreciated. I know I need to give more information, but it's 3am here and I can't for the life of me think what it should be.

Thanks in advance

I tried everything, something isn't right here all of them don't fix my problem. I tried to restore to early time before I update it, it didn't work. I tried to follow every single instruction from the basic setting, still doesn't work. THIS IS WINDOWS FAULT, their market share is going down and they do little trick to make money. I tried to contact support and it says, "charge may apply." ONLY BECAUSE I HAVE OEM in my ****ing product ID.

My hardware is TOTALLY FINE, I believe yours too. WHY I know mine is fine? BECAUSE I USE UBUNTU ON THE SAME DEVICE! Open Source is your friend, you can trust it.

A couple months ago, I upgraded my cable modem to DOCSIS3.0, and just yesterday upgraded my WiFi router. I also changed the WiFi security settings and went around to all my devices to make sure they were accessing properly.
The weird thing is that all of the network devices were able to connect and work properly except one laptop.
Dell Lattitude D820
Windows XP Home SP3
The wireless network card seems to be working properly in connecting to the network, as I can type in direct (numeric) IP addresses and see the router and modem, but this machine has no Internet connection. Under LAN & Network connections, there is no internet connection listed. So far, I've tried:
Tried to "Add a Connection" - still not showing an internet connection
Updated the Driver for the 1390 wireless card - now matches Dells most current version
Any ideas?

A:Upgraded home wifi and now laptop has no internet connection

I found the setting.
Under the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) settings, I had "Use the following DNS server" checked.
The DNS server changed with the new router.
I updated the DNS server and things are working again - (I could have also used "Obtain DNS server automatically").
Please feel free to close or delete this thread if it is not useful.

'Lo Again,

Was wondering if anyone knows offhand if my 13-year-old Toshiba laptop can "take" a wireless card. If it matters, it's an original Pentium 90 running Win'95. The problem is, I don't even know where to begin to look for an upgrade slot/compartment on a laptop (this is my first one, fresh off Ebay).

Also, can Win95 itself even handle wireless networking? If necessary, I have my own copy of Win98 that I can install; will that work? (Unfortunately, I can't put any form/shape of Linux on this thing, as the particular piece of software I require--ExamSoft--only runs on Windows).

Do you have any PCMCIA slots in that machine? If yes then what type?

Do you have an ethernet adapter there? If yes then you could get yourself a small access point.

Hello, a friend of mine has updated his HP 650 to windows 8.1 from windows 8 after a prompt to free upgrade. Probably he had blocked windows update before that's why he got a huge bunch of updates last week. The thing is that now that he got in Windows 8.1 the wifi adapter is missing form Network and from Device Manager. There is not even an unidentified adapter. I then visited Hp.com to download drivers for win 8.1 but i see no drivers availlable newer than win8.  If i upgrade to win10 is there a possibility that it will work? Is there a way to have wifi in win 8.1?Or is it the best option to install another wifi adapter? Could you suggest me an adapter that will work on win10 or win81.?

I recently had to format my drive and reinstall Windows 7, however after reinstallation nothing really works.  USB is not recognized, Wifi does not work, etc... I realized that all new drivers need to be downloaded but I cannot find the original driver disk and its hard to download them without being able to go online.   I was able to find and install a driver for the network card "Intel Centrino advanced -N + WiMax 6150".  I can see that the driver is installed and up to date, however it is still not discovering any networks and when troubleshooting, it states that no hardware installed. At this point I am thinking it is maybe a hardware issue, but the wifi was working just fine before I resett everything.  Anyone know what I can do?  Is there additional drivers I need for the network adapter to start working. Thanks

A:Wifi not working after Windows 7 re-install

I think you did not have the right drivers for the WIFI. please follow these steps:1. In the Run box type devmgmt.msc.2. Unknown devices would be listed as such and marked out with a yellow question mark.3. Select the unknown device or other device for which you need drivers and right click to access Properties.4. In the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id  or Hardware ID from the drop down.5. An alphanumeric string like this PCI\VEN_1217&DEV_7130&SUBSYS_012F1025&REV_01\4&6B16D5B&0&33F0 is the identification marker for the device.6. Please provide this number so that we can suggest the appropriate driver.

My computer is a recently purchased Dell with the Intel Graphics HD 530 display adapter. The outputs are one HDMI port (Monitor 1) and one display D-port (Monitor 2). I am connected to a pair of identical Samsung monitors. The D-port is routed through a passive display adapter for connection to the HDMI cord serving the second monitor. All my trouble is associated with Monitor 2.

During start up both monitors are used. The machine moves from the D-port monitor back to the HDMI port monitor during the startup process. At the end of the process only the HDMI monitor will display.

I tried swapping the cords around between the two monitors (switching up which was on D-port and which wasn't). Monitor 1 (HDMI-primary) works when connected to either the D-port cord set or the HDMI cord set. Monitor 2 (D-port primary) does not work on either cord set EXCEPT at machine start up when both monitors get used.

Prior to upgrading from Windows 7, everything worked. After the upgrade only the Monitor 1 works. I've tried removing and re-installing drivers. That didn't work.

Thoughts and suggestions?

I have a Dell E6510 laptop which I upgraded from XP to 7 Pro 32 bit. After installation I can no longer get online(I was able to get online before); "Not connected, no connections are available". Device Manager shows 3 drivers not working: Broadcom USH, Ethernet Controller and Network Controller. Anyone know where / how I can get these correct drivers to my machine?

A:Upgraded to 7, drivers not working

When you are in Device Manager do these items have yellow exclamation marks next to them. If so, right click the device, select Properties and under the Details tab select Hardware ID's. Copy and paste the first line for each device in your next post.

My computer is a recently purchased Dell with the Intel Graphics HD 530 display adapter. The outputs are one HDMI port and one display D-port. I am connected to a pair of identical Samsung monitors. The D-port is routed through a passive display adapter for connection to the HDMI cord serving the second monitor. All my trouble is associated with the second monitor.

I recently pulled my AMD K6-2 motherboard and installed a new ACORP socket 370 with a celeron 566. However, it refuses to boot, even the bios on the motherboard wont come on. Everything powers up, but just sits there. I have an ACORP 6BX/VIA83, 64mb PNY SDRAM, Diamond Multimedia Stealth 3 video card with savage 4 controller.
I think it may have something to do with the motherboard but i need help. I installed my old motherboard and it works.

It seems you can't get an IP address from the router DHCP server. Did you try factory resetting the router (not just power cycling)?

Also, Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 12-34-56-78-90-AB for onboard LAN I believe. Did you change the MAC address manually before?

After installing Windows 10 pro my WiFi will not connect. I have tried updating the driver (Ralink RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adaptor) and it tells me its upto date. im assuming this driver is the issue but not sure how i can fix this. My laptop model is: HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 CTO Notebook, Windows 7 home premium (x64)

A:WiFi not working after update to Windows 10 64bit

Hi: The only suggestion I can offer, would be to try the W8 driver for the RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi card your notebook has. I am not surprised that it doesn't work on W10, since there are no W8.1 or W10 drivers for that model card. This package contains the driver installation package for the Realtek RTL8188CE wireless LAN Controller in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59001-59500/sp59181.exe
