Windows 8 and Broadcom wireless cards
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
I was wondering if any other school is having issues with the Broadcom Wireless network cards running Windows 8/8.1 pro on a WPA2/AES network? We have students that are upgrading their Dell computers from Windows 7 to Windows 8 and the cards stop working on our secure network.
They are prompted for 802.1x credentials, and the ACS server authenticates them as well as the DHCP server handing out an IP address, but the computer always states limited or no connectivity.
What is really weird is that we have a 1232AG radio and the card will connect ONLY to the A radio, but not to the 1142N-A radio. We are running 22.214.171.124 code because of the older AP’s on campus. We did purchase a separate controller for a test environment which we have running 126.96.36.199 now and it still won’t connect to the 1142n-a radios.
Trying to back the driver down to Windows 7-64 bit doesn’t work (won’t allow it to be installed).
