    Windows 8.1 Drops Network Connection--Often


    I have just yesterday downloaded Windows 8.1 to my machine. Since then my computer loses its network connection often, and I have to reconnect via "Connect to a Network." This is quite annoying. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

    I take it this is a laptop? go to the makers support site and download and install the wireless driver.
