    Have you tried installing them manually from the .inf, or are you just running an installer program?

    download the WLAN pack from here

    http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks/latest

    You'll need Winrar or 7zip to open it. Extract it to say desktop\drivers\



    Go to device manager, tell it to scan the folder for drivers. The first links are for the 64bit ones.

    The .inf file just brings up a text page in notepad, so not sure how to use it in this case..



    Just wondering if it is the utility software that won't install not the driver as in the device manager I have the ....

    Aheros AR7015 wireless network Adapter which I guess is the TP-Link driver and that seems OK.

    The utility software on the other hand gets the error "Failed to load the library flile" when I try and open it.

    3rd party utilites are cack anyway. I'd use add/remove on the previous one, then just manually install the driver that I linked

    Still no joy for 802.11n

    Followed this instruction but still only seeing my 802.11g network, not the 802.11n network. I simply cannot find a driver that will do this. One thing to note is that it did not give me any option about which driver to install - it just located and installed on.

    Got it working by changing frequency

    I switched frequency down from 5GHz to 2.4GHz, retaining the 300Mbps speed, on the Virgin Super Hub (i.e. netgear router) and suddenly the TL-WN822N could see the network.
