Success of sorts anyway. I finally managed to install the wifi drivers through compatibility mode. Bad news is i can't connect to any of the networks at all. All my other devices in the house can connect. I tripled checked the password i entered, turned the router on and off but to no avail.

don't have an answer just a suggestion as new usb wifi device is really not that expensive and far more advanced faster and go further than the one you are having no success using ,good luck

Windows 8 seems to install the wrong driver or it installst wo conflicting drivers. I don't know which is true.
I searched the registry for "realtek" and deleted all the wireless and 8187 references (about 8) . Then I uninstalled the adapter in Device Manager. Then restarted and found a new "5 bars" icon in my notification area. If not (it varied) then I installed the correct drivers in device manager (to the adapter or to the "Unknown Device")
What a pain!!!!
NB You may want to export the registry keys before you delete them. If it goes pear-shaped you can then restore them. If the key lists a lot of other devices, just delete the "realtek" bit. Be careful if you have other realtek devices!

Hi. I've had the same problem. Found a solution in installing Beta package for RTL8187L 1316(Beta) 2011/2/23 from realtek download page: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=1&PFid=1&Level=6&Conn=5&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#RTL8187L
I'm on win 8.1 right now and it's all working just fine. I've had some minor issues. First I coudn't connect to any of networks using Rtl Lan Utility but in windows connection worked fine. Doday I installed an optional update from windows update and Rtl Lan Utility is working fine.

1. Select hardware installed in Device Manager (RTL8187 wireless)
2. With right click on the mouse select Update Driver Software.
3. Choose Browse my computer for driver software.
4. Select Browse and locate the folder named "Driver" that is located in the manufacturer cd (Drivers and Guide).
5. Finally wait and Windows 8 will find the driver and install it.
