    i been read lot post for wi-fi issue of the update 8.1 unfortunately i'm having issues too on connect to any wi-fi out there. i have read and done all most every thing on the forum they recommend. am going crazy trying to figure out how to fix this issue. i started working on the common issue that most ppl have with wi-fi. none of them help me. from there i update my router but no luck. From there i update all my drivers hoping there was some thing i missed but no luck. then i update my bios maybe there was update that need be done once aging no luck. then i went to dell support page update on wi-fi there was. i download the update then it ask me to Uninstall the wi-fi that was on computer so i did and re-install the new wi-fi driver and no luck. am runnig out of idea maybe some one out there can point me to directions how to fix this issue. i was think of installing i new OS like ubuntu or linux on my computer but is my last resort. the spec of my computer is

    Welcome to Eight Forums,

    It is unfortunate that others are also experiencing similar issue that you're having, have you tried using an old Windows 8 or 7 driver?
    Just to confirm your statement here that you've tried connecting to other Wi-Fi Networks, secured and unsecured?
    i'm having issues too on connect to any wi-fi out there.
    Are you not able to connect at all? or having disconnection issue?

    Can you please post your ipconfig /all output for review?

    Have you read the Thread here and follow the suggestions?

    I would think that the latest drivers for the Killer 1202 dated Oct. 24 should work for this.

    I'd have to see the Driver version in Device Manger in order to determine which driver you are using now so I can only guess that the updated drivers would work to fix this problem.

    Download BigFoot Killer Wireless-N 1202 Network Adapter WLAN Driver for Windows 7, Windows 7 64 bit, Windows 8, Windows 8 64 bit, Windows 8.1, Windows 8.1 64 bit

    Or maybe the driver from Dell dated 10/9/13
