I have done the search and found that some people have problems connecting their rover to Windows 8. My problem is that it never appears in my wifi list. I have a netbook that has Windows 7 starter and it appears in the list. What is it about Windows 8 that I need to change? I have tried disabling my antivirus software, windows fireball etc. I have other devices such as my roku and network cameras that I have no connection issues. Thanks, Barry.

You may have more luck on a website dedicated to the rover or even from the manufacturer.
The only other thing I can suggest is to try using a different WiFi NIC, use a USB WiFi dongle and see if that picks it up, it's as likely to be a problem between the NIC in the pc and the rover rather than the OS and the rover. I always had issues with my old Sony Viao laptop and finding some wireless networks.
