    hmmmm..
    have you checked to see if airplane mode is on or off?
    Have run the network troubleshooter?
    just tossing ideas out there.
    checked the connection on another computer?
    last idea I have is a last resort sort of one....disable fire wall in router modem and windows firewall and any third party one.

    Yep, airplane mode is off, Ive run the troubleshooter, nothing coming up there. I installed windows 8.1 last night and so far so good. If this doesn't work I'll try the turning off the firewall in windows defender.
    I've got a modem/router. Umm how do turn off firewall in that? I didn't even know it had one lol

    well it depends on your type of modem\router. if you can't find the manual, then look up their website usually under support FAQ to see how to adjust the settings.

    Yeah Goldy, found out how to disable firewall on router/modem but was strongly advised not do it. The good news is since I updated to windows 8.1 I have yet to have a dropout but I'm not holding my breath.
    Keep you posted!

Limited wireless connection in Network & Sharing
I have read previous posts that say to uninstall 3rd party virus software/firewalls and this should solve the wireless connection dropping. Mine still drops after I have uninstalled McAfree. What else can I do? It usually drops several times a night!!! Really annoying.
