    Power Plan Affecting WiFI?

    I was on a balanced power plan on my laptop while streaming on Netflix from my xbox. I couldn't get on any site on the laptop but I was able to use my iphone.

    On a hunch I switched to high performance and it works. Not sure if there is a relationship between power and the wifi on my laptop.

Switching Power Plan Shortcut
I have a Dell XPS 13 and the F3 button has a battery sign on it. Pressing it brings up some battery meter property which does not really help as a day-to-day shortcut. Is there any way I can change that to toggling between two of my Power Plans ("Power Saving, High Performance") each time I press?

What Power Plan do you use?
As title suggests, what power plan do you normally use on Windows 8? Do you switch between power plans depending on the situation at hand? I run Balanced most of the time, since my AMD CPU has Cool'N'Quiet technology, then switch over to High Performance when gaming.
