    Do not know what problems you are talking about with limited wifi & windows 8.x.x. Majority of the issues are Router/Gateway related.

    It helps to know the mfg & model of your router/gateway, and spec's on the laptop. Use Speccy so you can upload system info on here, from the URL it gives you after it inspects your system. Speccy - System Information - Free Download

    No! I don't know what problems you are talking about either. W8.x works great with Ethernet or wifi.

    And there is no such thing as "Ethernet with the wifi". They are two separate networking protocols, independent of each other.

    If you mean connecting to two networks at the same time (Network A with an Ethernet cable and Network B via wireless), that would be an unusual setup, but it is not a limitation for W8. You can connect W8 to multiple networks - IF your hardware supports it.
