    Hey,

It has refused to reconize my device any one know of any issues with IE8 not reconizing a wireless device. Its happening on two seperate wireless adapters which I kno work so its not hardware problem becuase it happens on laptop and pc. Cheers.

    Is it stopping all network activity for the computer or is it not importing proxy settings (if you are running a proxy?)

    Seems unlikely that IE8 would cause it ...

    What happens when you plug it in?

    Well you see a teacher has come to me with this problem which is happening at home. He said it started as soon as he installed IE8. So I am a bit unsure of the exact message. I think he should try reverting back to IE7 see if it solves it. Anyone know a nice easy way of going about that, he said he is having problems installing it due to it saying a newer version is already running. I am just wondering if IE8 messes something up maybe. What do you suggest I tell him to do :P

    I think he's missing some of the story

    Tell him to follow MS Advice here.
