I installed Windows 8 and tried to connect to the Internet.
Windows 8 has no problem with wireless connections. In fact, the OS has been designed for a 24/7 connectivity. Yours seems to be a PC problem acquired in the upgrade. One of the solutions could be to download the Wi-Fi drivers for your laptop again. Also, it would be good to check if your winsock or the TCP/IP stack has been corrupted in the upgrade process. To reset them, type the following two commands into an elevated command prompt one at a time hitting enter after each one then
reboot the system. netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries) netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack) For further assistance, you can contact Microsoft customer care on 1800-1021100. But it doesn’t connect though my USB Dongle. Is this a problem with my PC or Windows 8? Is there any solution for this? My Micromax MMX352G data card is not being detected by Windows 8. Does Windows 8 do not supports Wireless Internet connection or it is the problem with my PC? It was working very well in Windows 7. Is there anything you or I can do about this?
