Dell Venue 8 Pro Network Driver


Yes, this tablet has revealed that Dell doesn't care about their customers. They created a product with a defective network card or drivers that are unable to make it work properly. They refuse to acknowledge this, keep selling the device and don't provide a solution. The closest they came to admitting there was an issue was in the beginning of this thread, when a new driver was announced. All future driver updates never solved the issue and Dell stopped showing up in this thread. They have probably discovered that there is a flaw that software by itself can't fix. A recall of all devices is something they want to avoid, so they just pretend the there is no issue. There is not enough stir on forums and social media, so they think they can get away with it, and by the looks of it they can.




Dell Venue 8 Pro Network Driver



As mentioned by several people: all work arounds that suggest deleting certain Windows updates have no effect for most of us. It is not quite clear why some people seem to find them beneficial. As suggested before: it may only be a temporary cure, if any. However for most people they don't work, unfortunately. Don't get get me wrong, I'd love them to work, and tried them all, but they don't.The problem here is the lack of a proper driver which makes the network card work like it should. As long that is missing, these tablets will just not work as the should. The problem surfaced well over a year ago, so Dell had plenty of time to come up with a driver. They didn't and it has become clear that just don't care. No apologies, no refunds, no solutions. They just keep quite and hope the problem goes away.

It may not be broken or damaged yet. The following answer helps bring the dell venue 8 pro back up and working. Im thinking when it goes dark, the dell is hard sleeping, so doing the following Forces a Hard Shutdown and then you should hopefully be up an running in no time.


Dell Venue 8 Pro = drivers (Installed all dell latests drivers) / BIOS (BIOS A03) /windows updates (all updates installed, except Windows Malicious Software removal)Found that installing VirtualBox with "bridged network driver" interferes with /disables Miracast options and connections.So Installing similar virtual network components like the "bridged network driver", VPN software, somehow interfered with the WiFi Direct connection (Miracast - seamlessly displaying video between devices, without cables or a network connection.)."Make certain that your display when using the Netgear Push2TV indicates it's waiting for connection before attempting to enable connection from your tablet.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Charms Menu -> Devices -> Project "add a wireless display" not available anymore Fix/Solution


Your guess is correct. If I disable those network drivers, then wireless display behaves as normal. so, it is the network drivers causing the issue. I noted windows 8.1 has a wifi direct virtual network adapter, perhaps, vbox shouldn't bridge that adapter?


I've got a problem, and hoping you guys can help me sort it out. I installed windows 10 on my dell venue 8 pro, and it's been working beautifully. Today, however, I got a Miracast adapter, and dell informed me I needed new drivers. I downloaded the new drivers, and now windows 10 won't post. It also, won't let me restore. It says "you need media" and doesn't seem to figure out that I've got the recovery partition still taking up space (likely because it's windows 8.1) any ideas? Right now, it's not usable at all. Just boots to a blue screen informs me it's fubar'd then turns off.


Third-party Ethernet adapters are also supported for network deployment, although they don't support PXE boot. To use a third-party Ethernet adapter, you must load the drivers into the deployment boot image, and you must launch that boot image from a separate storage device, such as a USB stick.


Hi @jayeff I appreciate your reply and apologize for the delay getting back to you. I believe the number on this one is 3845. It has windows 8.1 on it. Initially the bluetooth device had disappeared from the device manager, but it has since returned. It wasn't coming back with a scan for new hardware. I think I fixed it by reinstalling the driver again and rebooting the device again. And then was having other problems with the pairing that made me think the Bose bluetooth is wonky too lol. I appreciate the video link as this is always great information to have, but for the moment it seems to be working, so I'll just leave it at that. Also I got it to go sideways in the first place by attempting to install a text to speech app on it. Also Narrator interferes with the networking for some reason. Probably a topic for a new question but I was trying to get "something -- anything" to read an open office document back to me, and Narrator won't do it and Braina won't do it and I had downloaded another one that won't run on this tablet.


how do you reset bios for dell venue 8 pro, i try to update the bios of my venue 8 pro and suddenly shutdown due to maybe battery drain, after charging it I try to power on and it was no longer working even i press it for more than a minute it just blink the orange led when pressing the power button and i noticed that it emit heat at the back even no sign on screen


To fix your Drivers problems you will need to know the particular model of the network adapter device you are having problems with. Once you have the details you can search the manufacturers website for your drivers and, if available, download and install these drivers.


Missing or corrupt Network Adapter Drivers can cause problems with your network connections. If you are not sure if your problem is driver-related, you can download a driver update tool, most of which will allow a free scan to check if any of your drivers are out-of-date.


In newer versions, like Windows 8 and Windows 10, Error 651 is usually due to a problem with the network adaptor, which is where the hardware of the PC meets that of the network device. Concretely, the culprit is usually a driver that was incorrectly installed, is out of date, or is completely missing from the network adapter.


Error 651 can also be traced back to RASPPPOE (RAS PPPover Ethernet), especially in Windows 7. This universal driver, which is saved in the system file raspppoe.sys, is often used in place of the official driver from the manufacturer of the network device. If this file is damaged, it may result in connection problems.


Before you look into drivers or concrete network settings, you should try restarting your devices. This means disconnecting your router or DLAN adapter from the power source and reconnecting it after around 30 seconds.
