Many Windows 8 users have reported that after updating their computer to Windows 8, their NETGEAR devices are no longer working properly. Like most Windows operating systems, Windows 8 needs drivers that have been designed and developed specifically for it.
After upgrading to Windows 8, some users report that their computer fails to detect their NETGEAR printer, or that their NETGEAR printer is not working. Some have reported issues with their NETGEAR video card, graphics card and network connectivity. Others have seen generic messages such as Windows 8 cannot load the drivers or they are experiencing problems connecting to WiFi or the internet.
The problem is that all connected devices, including NETGEAR devices, need updated drivers to work properly under Windows 8. If you have recently updated to Windows 8, or your new Windows 8 computer, laptop or notebook fails to recognize your old devices, you also need to update all NETGEAR drivers in order to fix these problems on Windows 8 which relate to your NETGEAR hardware.
On Windows 8, not all NETGEAR drivers and updates are available through the built-in Windows Update feature. That's why it is important to check the NETGEAR website for drivers or to use DriverGuide to keep up with the latest drivers for your devices.
