    Default HELP!! Problems with wifi after installing Windows 8

    Hi everyone,

    I have just completed a fresh install of Windows 8 on my laptop (a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge, E450/3254/AP7) however I am having an unusual issue with the wifi. The wifi is connected however it continuously drops in and out (down to 0 kbps and back up again) every 5 seconds meaning that the internet is practically useless.

    Some details - I haven't yet been able to download and install any new drivers from Lenovo for Windows 8 (due to the problem) however now I am at work I will be downloading the relevant drivers to install when I get home. I also applied the Windows 8 Bitdefender antivirus package to my laptop immediately after installing Windows 8 - I am unsure if this might also be affecting my wifi? I tried turning off the Bitdefender firewall and it didn't change or improve anything.

    Does anyone have any idea what this might be and how I can fix it? I am really enjoying Windows 8 and this problem is driving me mental!!

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Kally,

    Have you tested on other computer or mobile phone? If this issue also happen on other computer, that is your wifi issue. Then you need check your wifi adapter.

    Hello,

    Yes we've tested the wifi/internet on other machines (another laptop and a tower PC) in the house and it's fine - it's only my laptop and since I installed Windows 8 that this has started happening.
