I've recently upgraded to windows 8 and I've been having some issues with my wireless connectivity. I've narrowed it down to an issue with the wireless adapter. Specifically, windows doesn't seem to recognize my Intel centrino Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250 and instead installed drivers for Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6250 AGN. The correct driver is instead listed in "Other Devices" in the device manager.
This was the first thing that I tried. I did Intel's automatic driver scan and installed the drivers, but as it is a package of drivers for various devices it installed for the wrong adapter. The correct adapter is still listed in "Other Devices." How can I change this?
