Re: Windows 8 Driver Request Forum for Unsupported Systems

I am somewhat surprised by the fact that Dell is not going to support the first generation XPS laptops, choosing to provide drivers and BIOS updates only for *02 family, and not *01. Since I have the former, in its "stock" configuration, with no updates to the BIOS and Windows 7 working more or less like a charm, any pitfalls I should avoid when uprgrading to Windows 8? I'd rather see Dell support my hardware, after all, it's quite fresh - I have received my laptop in December 2010 - but I'll be grateful for any advice.

Re: Windows 8 Driver Request Forum for Unsupported Systems

Hello friends, I have recently clean installed windows 8 on my dell latitude e6400. WIFI is not working with windows 7 drivers.

Does the card not work natively with Windows 8? Any idea what wireless card are you using? (Can you check if its name is listed under device manager?) The E6400 has a few variants.

Re: Windows 8 Driver Request Forum for Unsupported Systems

its an m18x and  no luck so far.

The Sibeam wireless HD will not initialize, the port wont open.

 

tried the link and the AT91USBSerial element in device manger does not have a yellow warning icon anymore though so there may have been a tiny step forward.But still get the 'port will not open' error when trying to run the WiHD utility

Re: Windows 8 Driver Request Forum for Unsupported Systems

The driver I gave should be the correct one. Try uninstalling the SiBeam software from both device manager and add/remove programs.

Restart the computer and then attempt reinstallation of the driver.
