Uhh you guys did not understand there is no add connection in newtwork connections of windows 8. so how i will add a connection.its bsnl and its not like plug and play. you can simply install and windows 8 and check it before telling me anything well i jsut need the lan. when i insert the driver cd it says it cant find any modem but on wins xp or 7 it shows.
Ideally windows shoud be able to install drivers for most NICs. And the driver CD that u have might not have any drivers for windows 8. Did u get this driver cd before the release of w8? Depending on the type of nic (integrated on mobo or a separate pci card) u would have to look for the mobo vendor's website or the card vendors website to download latest drivers for w8. U would have to use a seperate computer to with net connection to do that.To ensure that it is a driver problem u need to check the device manager to see if there are any question or exclamation marks next to something like network contoller or an unknown device.Another option is that bsnl might have given u a usb cable with the modem. If the usb drivers on win8 are working u can try to connect ur modem wiht the cable (ur modem has to be usb supported for this to work)
