    Windows 8 Wireless Networking Secrets Revealed

    With a consumer preview on the horizon, Microsoft recently provided some details about the wireless networking features in Windows 8.

    Redmond has re-engineered the wireless networking stack to optimize the experience in Windows 8, the company said in a recent blog post.

    People want similar mobility on their PCs as they get on their smartphones," wrote Billy Anders, a group program manager on Microsoft's devices and networking team. "It is unlikely that your end goal is just to get connected to the Internet. Instead, connecting to the Internet is a step (or a hurdle) towards what you really want to do, like surf, socialize, or explore, and you would prefer that your PC is connected and ready for you to use whenever you want and wherever you are."

    It's only briefly mentioned in the article, but I read a recent article on how MS will make the connection really fast from startup and resume from sleep, etc. I really hope they do, because on 7 it can be painfully slow--especially from hibernation. Often I have to kick it with ipconfig in the command line.
