I have the following problem, Yesturday I updated my system to Windows 8.1, what I noticed that I had my WiFi connection stop working (ping to gateway dissapear), Disconnect and Connect fixes the problem but it happen randomly.
I've installed Broadcom 126.96.36.199 driver from Lenovo Website.. but it didn't solve the problem.
Does anyone know what could be the problem?
Thank you, D.

Looks like when 802.11n is enabled on router it doesn't want to work for windows 8.1 (Broadcom 802.11n wireless card) . I set router to B/G and it started working fine (but on slower speeds).
