Windows 8 is still in Beta just as you reported and this means that the OS is still unstable and and not guarenteed to function correctly..  Even the release notes reported a number of compatiblity issues so you should not expect anything when you are working with any Alpha or Beta builds.

This is why in th past only Beta Testers recieved copies of builds, this using the public as beta testers has positive and negitive outcomes..

No Thanks, even with changing my Verizon Wireless Apple IPhone 4 WIFI Personal Hot Spot's Name and Password all the time, I still end up with an Occasional Unrecognized WIFI User on my Device all the time, especially if I leave it turned on Over Night! Answer Rated NOT HELPFULL!

It should be noted that I was previously in those Windows Beta's and I am also a member of both Microsoft Technet (Retail Subscription), and all 3 Apple Developer Programs (IOS, Mac and Safari), which is the reason why I am running Microsoft Windows 8 Beta 1 on 2 of my 3 Dell's (the oldest one has Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 and Microsoft Office 2003 on it, which is the PC that I am using the 551L on), and the Mid Year 2010 Apple Mac Mini has Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Server Edition on it (something that I am technically am NOT supposed to be talking about here due to my NDA so this will be the last time I mention it here (as you can see I am known for being the type of  Computer Nerd that loves Alpha and Beta Testing)! 🙂

I have knowledge of the tech world also and am not a rookie to the game, my only point is that when a developers release beta builds it is clear that other applications and devices may not function because of the limited code refining...   Since you understand how the game works I am unsure what is the reasoning to reporting something not functing on a OS that is uncomplete, this sounds like a question for the Beta group and the developers not the Service Pervidor..
