    I am facing a similar problem of wifi getting into limited connectivity after every resume from sleep. The problem however goes when I run the network troubleshooter but that is really annoying. I have tried downloading the Windows 7 x64 drivers from the HP website for my HP 6515b but that does not solve the problem since the Broadcom drivers that come with Windows 8 are newer than the ones available on HP website.

    My wifi is Broadcom BCM4312 using on Windows 8 x64.

    The ID details of my Hardware are below:

    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4312&SUBSYS_1371103C&REV_02
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4312&SUBSYS_1371103C
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4312&CC_028000
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4312&CC_0280

    I have also tried unchecking the IPV6, it some how seems to solve the problem but the trouble is that the check box also comes to checked by itself, so some of you might also get to solve the problem of UNCHECKING the IPV6 settings in the adapter settings of the wifi, this was posted in MS technet forums.

    PPl I think I have found a solution:

    The basic solution is that we should UNCHECK IPV6 (for those who don't know, please search). Now the problem with my system was that the IPV6 option was by default getting checked/enabled even after I unchecked so the system used to resume with the limited connectivity.

    Now I tried to disable IPV6 by default in the registry and bingo the problem is gone....I am not longer getting the limited connectivity when I resume from sleep, though I must clarify the moment I resume the system is in limited connectivity for sometime like 10 seconds or so and then it comes to the full connection, it seems to be a much better situation than earlier.

    Please note the link I used to disable the IPV6 in registry:

    How To Disable IPv6 In Windows 7 & Windows 8

    Will keep every one posted if I get this problem again.

    I made this for you, including a driver date of July 5, 2011. To install, right click it in device manager. Update driver software. Browse my computer. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse.

    Now find the bcmwl6.inf in the extracted folder from the download and double click on it. Hit next then ok and it will install.

    Where did you get the original driver, if I may ask?

    Sure thing. From Microsoft server, although Broadcom is the author/maker (must use I.E.):

    Microsoft Update Catalog

    You can search for VEN_14E4&DEV_4727 on there and download yourself. Extract to a folder. Then open its .inf file and compare to the one I gave you.

    I just made small changes so it will work for you, that's all. I've been doing this for many years and would like to think I'm somewhat trusted around these parts by long timers.

    Edit: I fixed the search string above so you can find it on there. If you include the whole string, it will not show anything...and that is precisely the reason I had to edit the .inf for you.

    I have a Realtek wireless adapter. Would the same sort of change work for me? What exactly did you change with his? I couldnt tell by comparing the two inf files.

    @Davegx - Realtek has the driver for you on their website, dated July 5, 2011. It should do very well. 8192SE

    Realtek

    If for some reason it doesn't install well, check the .inf for your hardware id to be present. If it is not, try with one of the 8191 downloads.

    It's not for you, but just to specify what I did anyway - the new .inf has this instead of the third (of 4 in total) hardware id in every mention:

    "%BCM430N_DeviceDesc% = BCM43XNG20_NT61, PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_051014E4 ;WNC"
