Windows 7: Windows can't find and install device

Windows can't find and install device

Cisco EAP-FAST Module is on my Programs file but when I 'search device',
Windows can't find it. How is that?!

A quick Google search tells me that it is an authentication protocol for wireless networks. So I would say that it is software that works with your wireless card, and not a device.

Yes I see. Btw, Cisco Linksys doesn't support Win 7 Starter. Isn't that the reason why Windows can't find the router? Thanks TV.

First time you mentioned the router. Is there a bigger problem you are trying to solve?

If so, try and describe it in detail - as if I were miles away and only knew what you told me!

lol I was trying to find ways to hack Cisco on my Acer netbook but as I said, Cisco doesn't support Win 7 Starter. That was the big problem which apparently cannot be solved. Can you? Thanks.

I can't help you violate any licensing agreements on a public forum, if that is what you are asking.
If you mean, how can I get this hardware to work on my computer?, then maybe.

Let's start with Brand (Cisco), model #, type of device, and function.
Then add your full System Specs to your profile.

Let's not violate any licensing agreement here TV lol.
Before I give you my Cisco specs which I have yet to find, I think I must tell there's still one solution
I haven't tried. I learned somewhere that I could use a USB network adapter to connect Cisco to my Acer Windows netbook.

I'm really confused. What is it you are trying to do with your router? If it is a standard router, running standard protocols, then your netbook should be able to connect wirelessly to it.

Sorry Layback. Do I have to delete that message. I didn't mean to make it a joke.

The router simply refuses to sync with my netbook Deacon.
