First off, am I getting this right that there are still no Windows 8 drivers for this adapter? I had to run the setup disc with compatibility settings to get the software installed. Also, since I am using this adapter Wi-Fi shows "Off" under Networks, even though it is on and working. This was not the case with the WUSB600N I used before with Windows 8.

On the website, there is no Windows 8 driver for this device yet; however, the operating system should be able to install a generic driver that would make the adapter work on your computer. Reboot your computer with the adapter plug in so that the OS would install the drivers automatically.

I would certainly hope someone from Cisco checks in here from time to time too. The AE3000 has proven to be problematic with my installation using the Windows 7 driver (v. 3.2.8). Whenever I turn the computer on, or wake it up from sleep mode, the networking icon says No Internet Access (although displaying otherwise, all bars that is), and I have to restart, or reset the adapter to get it to work. Pretty annoying. I can only see a Windows 8 specific driver fix this.

Same here, it will be nice if there is a specific drivers for a specific OS so that the device will function properly. Let’s just hope that the drivers will be released soon so that these issues will be resolved.

you are correct. in most cases ojnly the driver is compatible and you install only the driver software - not the wireless configuration utility. since winxp, people would only install the drivers and just use the wireless utility of the OS and not the manufacturer's.
