Realtek makes the chip for Boise and if you download the driver package from Boise and open it up it says:
Copyright© 2011, RealTeK Technology Inc. All Right Reserved.
* Realtek RTL8192C USB 802.11B/G/N 300M Wireless NIC Release Note.
So I don't think the name is the problem. I would remove the Boise. Then right click on Computer and select Manage then Device Manager, Look for Network Adapter in the right pane and click on the arrow in front to open it up. If you see the Realtek adapter, right click on it and uninstall. Reboot. Download the driver package from Boise:
Go to http://www.mybolse.com/support.asp and click on Wireless then find your adapter from the three they show. Click on Windows Driver. Download it and Save it. Right click on the file you downloaded and Extract All. Double click on the folder you extracted. (Probably Windows20140110) then Find the Install.bat file and right click on it and Run As Admin. It will probably tell you when to install the Boise but if not, wait until it finishes then stick it in. (Preferably in a different slot that it was last.) Does it install without a problem?
If it still doesn't work then go back into Device Manager and right click on the Realtek wireless adapter and select Properties. Does it say:
This device is working properly?
If so and you are still having problems then follow the 1st 4 steps on http://technology.pi...Combined_01.pdf
Steps 5 and up depend on your encryption standard so don't blindly follow them.
Tomorrow is my last day before a month long trip so I may have to give you back to Trevorever
