Windows 8 Wifi issues at multiple locations
Posted on 2014-11-13
We are having an odd problem at mulitple sites that we wanted to run by you all to see if you were having any similar issues, or heard anything about this.
We have new Windows 8.1laptops and tablets. A variety of hardware manufactures but the top three are HP's, Lenovo, and Microsoft Surface tablets.
At multiple, completely separate networks and customers the Windows 8 pc's randomly drop off the wifi network. The users will be connected, then the computer will say "limited connectivity" and drop the connection to the internet, then reconnect a minute or so later. Window 7 and Mac box's on the same network do not experience any issues.
This is happening on 3 networks now, all 3 with different types of WAP's (Cisco 321 at one sight, Netgear and linksys at the other 2.
Any of you see this behavior? If so, did you figure it out?
