Intel I7-3630QM 2.4G, 8G RAM, HDD 1TB- 15.6" FHD LED display, OS Win8, Lenovo IdeaPad Y5000, model name 20193, Nvidia GEFORCE GT 650M.
Hope that helps..
This is what I have done to mine:
Boot into bios and disable secure boot.
1. Boot in safe mode.
2. Uninstall wifi driver from device manager. Be sure to check the box that says "delete ...".
3. Reboot and let windws 8 install it's own wifi driver.
4. Connect to internet by supplying the ssid and passphrase.
5. Disable bluetooth.
I have a very stable connection after this.

I have this problem of the dropping wifi connection and have read several ways to fix it from various sites. I have already uncheck boxes in Device Manager regarding internet connection and saving power.
Below is my computer info, but, in Windows 8, I don't know how to "restart" my computer, plain, in safe mode, etc.
I just bought this computer about a month ago, and this wifi connection problem only seems to a problem at home on my Excede Satilite wifi; I took a trip several weeks ago and never had this problem with wifi at various wifi sites.
If I could get nicly detailed 1. Step, 2. Step, sort of instrutctions, I would really appreciate it. I've got the flu and my head is congested enough as it is. Thanks.
