Windows 8.1 WiMax N 6150


Original thread: /thread/45947 https://communities.intel.com/thread/45947

Question: I have a WiMax N 6150 wireless adapter in my Samsung Series 7 notebook. I updated to Windows 8.1 and since then have been experiencing wireless connection problems on all wireless networks. I've tried to update the driver, but it says it is up to date. I need help.

Thanks much for your help!
