    It may be something within the firmware for the wireless. At least that is what it would signal to me. IT is inherent that the drivers for Win 8 will have their hicups, so to speak, since it is a new os. You can be sure that further down the road they will get better, but it will take time. Go to lakes app thread and download driver genius and run it. make sure every time you update that app you must rerun the crack that is within the file and reinstall the crack to the directory folder. It would be a good idea to make backups in your instance of the os incase you have any mishaps. Hopefully it will fix your problem. I wish you luck.
