Windows 8 CP on Fujitsu Q550 - Wifi

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have installed the Windows 8 CP 32bit on a Fujitsu Q550. Installation went smoothly but although Windows 8 detect the Wifi-Adapter it does find any Wifi Network.

    Does anyone already have encounter this and has a possible solution.

    Thank you

  • OK, I will simply try a reinstall the OS.

    And I agree the signal reception of the Q550 is terrible but I am only 2m away from the AP.

  • Hi Sascha,

    Just need a confirmation here 'Windows 8 detect the Wifi-Adapter it does find any Wifi Network' - do you mean it does not find any Wi-Fi Networks?

    Were you trying to connect to a secured Wi-fi or unsecured? Have you tried both?

  • Hi,

    the small wireless icon shows that a network is available but when I click to view the networks available the list show no networks available. I am now on an Asus EEESlate and have about 10 networks available both secure and insecure but on the Q550 I am not even able to select one.

    Regards

  • On my Q550 everything was fine. I've connected to my wifi during the installation process and everything is fine. In general i find the reception qulity of the Q550 very bad compared to my other devices.

  • Windows Update is a difficult without network connection. The Q550 has only Wireless and 3G. 3G drivers are not working with Windows 8 and Wireless is the issue.

  • Reinstallation did work and now I can download the Q550 driver update through Windows Update.

    Thank you everyone.
