    Before upgrade to Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store, you do not need to install all Windows 8 updates from Windows Update.

    You only need to install KB2871389 update, then you’ll be able to install the Windows 8.1 update via the Windows Store. Download and install KB2871389 update from link or from Windows Update.

    Update is available that prepares Windows 8 and Windows RT-based computers for the update to Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 RT

    But if you've opened the Windows Store and you don't see the Windows 8.1 update, then you will need to also install KB2917499 update.

    Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1 upgrade information is not displayed as expected in Windows Store

    The link works for me OK. Try this:


    - All supported x86-based versions of Windows 8:

    - All supported x64-based versions of Windows 8:

Is it possible to "refresh wireless networks" in Windows 8
In prior versions of Windows before W8, it was very easy to refresh your network list. This would allow you to see ALL of wireless networks in your area that your WiFi card could detect. My Windows 8 only allows me to see the wireless networks that it wants me to see. How do I see all Windows...
