    My wireless driver it stopped connecting to my wireless network. I tried rolling back to the older verison,still refused to connect. I reinstalled the older version,but it still continues to not connect. I tried deleting the network profile and making a new one,but it still won't connect. The only way it will connect to the internet is via a hooked cabled. My specs are as follows. OS Version: Microsoft Windows 8 Pro, Service Pack 1, 64 bit Processor: Intel i3 6th Gen Processor Count: 2 RAM, Intel integrated Graphics, Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard, 3577 Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled

    There is not actually a service pack for windows 8 - as called by that name.
    Windows 8 was released in 2012 and should have been upgraded to 8.1

    The original update to 8 - the 8.1 was released in 2014

    Additionally to that on Windows 8 you should be using Windows Defender - which is the current Windows 8.1 AV not Microsoft Security Essentials which is now used only on 7.

    IF the system has bot been updated with the latest 8.1 updates then when you do so, you may well find that the wireless connection works

    Can you be more specific about what is happening when you try to connect? Does it tell you cannot connect?
    What is the wireless network? From a ISP provided modem/router?

    Do you only have 2GB of RAM and running a 64 bit version of Windows?

    Pretty sure that's the processor count. I had to look twice as well...

    I think it is as well
    That said I do not think we need to worry too much as - a response is not coming IMHO
