I have just recently done the Windows 8 upgrade on my Laptop which has the facility for having a data card in the Laptop (behind the battery). The connection to this was working fine when I was using Windows 7, but now seems to be not letting open it to add password and connect to the internet.

Any suggestions please?

Hi :) 

You NEED Windows 8 drivers for it.... and 8 has a problem with various WIFI dongles... so manufacturers support site for 8 drivers , IF they have written them otherwise its buy a dongle WITH 8 drivers or back to 7....
