Windows 8 is not in the Microsoft OS list.
Anyway, this computer is wired to the router, and also another computer, a Blueray player with wifi receptor, a Roku and Google TV are connected wireless to the router. After Windows 8 installation, the other computer and this computer are working fine, but other devices are saying they can not be connected to the network. Any ideas?

make and model of the router you have

so no items can connect to the router, cable or wireless

whats the status lights on the router showing
also try a powercycle
------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to power cycle

“power cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router
  • Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
  • Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes,
  • Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.
  • First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
  • Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
  • Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

Thank you very much for your help.
Power cycle solved the problem, although I still don't understand why only the computer was working wireless while other devices did not work.

a powercycle is often needed with devices - solves quite a few issues and must be done with cable modems to work after any connection changes

excellent - thanks for letting us know
