    Wifi connectivity issue on Windows 8.1

    I bought a new laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro L850 with builtin Windows 8 64-bit, which I updated to Windows 8.1, It took me 3 days to install the 3.4gb update.
    PROBLEM: I am getting the Wifi connectivity issue inform of very slow speed, frequent disconnection, limited connectivity.
    Plz note: This issue was also happening when laptop was running on Windows 8.
    The network adapter is Qualcomm Atheros AR946x
    After reading some blogs/discussions I did some following changing to solve my wifi connectivity interruption.
    1. I disabled Bluetooth Device from Device Manager under Network Adapters
    2. Uninstall the Atheros adapter and re-installed the new software Dated: 02/04/2014 from atheros website.
    1. My laptop internet connectivity doesn't seems to be smooth.
    2. My laptop does not connect to wifi when I go to another room, infact my mobile phone connected to wifi where my laptop don't. I also have my old laptop (acer) with me that I bought 3 years back and it's wifi is working perfect even in far distance.

    Plz note: This issue was also happening when laptop was running on Windows 8.
    I am not too much in windows programming. I am so much confused what to do to solve this matter. Your valuable suggestions are the only hope for me now.
    Thank you & looking forward

    Wondering if this problem still solved, I have exactly the same problem. Wondering ISP problem or my problem.
    I have same network adapter, Qualcomm Atheros AR946x on my Acer laptop

    When the internet speed is slow. I check the network and it somehow said connectivity issue with my modem, router etc... but they are just worked perfectly before.

How are the wifi connectivity bars determined?
There seems to be almost no correlation to performance - 5 bars could be a 100+ Mbps connection, or it could be < 5 Mbps... On the other hand, 4, 3, 2, and 1 bars all mean that the connection is going to be flaky and unstable :rolleyes:
