  • We have seen some cases like this. Try to download and install manufacturer Wireless driver. If they don’t have the driver for windows 8, try windows 7 driver.

  • Please update WiFi driver for your machine, also update BIOS and Chipset. You can contact machine manufacturer for the latest version of driver.
