Wi-Fi not working in windows 8.1 on STK1A32SC

I installed windows 8.1 on STK1A32SC but not able to get wifi working. I tried installing the drivers but it keeps sayign "Driver not installed" and there is no way in device manager to update driver. What are the steps to get wi-fi working. It came with windows 10 and the wifi was working correctly but i need windows 8.1 for my purpose.

Hello akmedia:

 

 

You are doing the steps correctly, the wi-fi should work that way, but since that is not the case, first we can try to restore the BIOS to defaults.

 

 

Then we can try a BIOS update.

 

 

Instructions to do a BIOS update with the F7 method:

.BIO file needed to do the update to 0024 version which is the latest one:

If still is not working, then get into device manager, and un-install the driver by doing a right click on it and select: "delete" then try the following driver, make sure to choose the one for Windows® 8:

If the driver gets installed, then restart the PC, and it should work that way.

 

 

Any questions, please let me know.

Hello akmedia:

 

 

I just wanted to check if the information posted previously was useful for you?

 

 

And I wanted to confirm if you need further assistance with the wi-fi problem on the stick, or if it was resolved?

 

 

Any questions, please let me know.

 

 

Alberto
