    How to install adapter in Windows 8 64 bit?

    Region : NewZealand

    Model : TL-WN823N

    Hardware Version : V1

    Firmware Version :

    ISP :


    Hi,

    I saw on the TP-LINK web site that windows 8 32 and 64 bit is supported for the WN823N V1, but I cannot install the programs from the CD and cannot get the adapter to work.

    When I plug in the adapter itself it is recognised as a realtek RTL819CU Wireless LAN USB 2.0 Adapter and a driver from realtek is loaded. 1021.0.716.2012 16/7/2012. However I cannot connect to it by entering the password at all.

    I cannot update the drivers. I can manually install the utility app by directly running the installer from the CD in Utility\setup.exe but it wont run it starts up and show a dialog With the header TWCU and a message Failed to load the library file!

    I am running Windows 8 64 bit 6.2.9200. The adapter is labelled as a TL-WN823N Ver 1.0 on the box.

    Regards,

    JR

    It seems that the driver was already installed successfully.
    After you entering the password, is there any error message ?

    "but it wont run it starts up and show a dialog With the header TWCU and a message Failed to load the library file!"

    It seems that the TP-link utility can not support the windows 8 currently.
    But you can use the windows built-in utility...
