Windows Developer Preview crashes every time I connect to Internet

    Question

  • Hello.

    I installed Win8 and I have a problem.

    Every time I try to connect to Internet the system crashes.

    Is it possible to resolve this problem somehow?

  • Okay. I resolved the problem.

    I changed the way I connect to web. The crash happened when I have had to enter Password and Name.

    I'm using now an Wi-Fi adapter and no crashes anymore. (Adapter allows me to connect to Internet directly, without entering account data).

    (maybe wi-fi router; I'm not sure).

  • Hi corvard,

    try updating your Network Adapter driver through the Device Manager. Since you may not be able to use the network update service, try downloading the driver on another computer, and transferring it on your own or , if you are using a dual boot, use the second option you get while updating through the Device Manager- Search for Driver software on this computer. You may also try to run the downloaded driver in Compatibility Mode, if necessary.

  • Hi,

    Do I understand it correctly that you were using PPPoE with AUTH before you switch to Wi-Fi?

    Thank you.

  • Okay, so that adds to the known issue with PPPoE on Windows Developer Preview. Thanks for the info. Hopefully, this is fixed in Beta.
