Thanks.

 

My machine (3334CTO) had the problem; seems to have been fixed for me since the update that was released before the one that you posted.

15.6 from Intel fixed dropping on a Wireless N router but would still disconnect on a Wireless G router I have usually on large file transfers.

Intel recently released 15.8 and that seems to have fixed it.

Also on prior versions I had to set Max Performance on Battery mode or it had issues when on battery. Not sure if 15.8 fixed that.

Here is link for Intel drivers

I am giving 15.6 a try right now.  The issue is I am away from my old wireless point that I did ALL of my testing from.  I don't have enough experience with this wireless point (cheap netgear in a VERY congested apartment).  At work the wireless is basically broke here, so I have limited ablity to test for hte next month.

 

I will say that a few days of 15.8 (from Intel.com) seemed to be working flawlessly.  I downgraded to this 15.6 a few minutes ago and will report back after a few days (or when I experience an issue).

 

:edit

Well... that didn't take long.  15.6 already failed.  It disconnected me while loading a Youtube video, much like hte older problematic versions did as well.  I put  Intel v15.8 back on.

15.8 continues to work pretty good. 

Here is a direct link to the 15.8 drivers from May 31st.  Download the filename_DE_32(or64).exe for your particular version of Windows 8 (32 vs. 64 bit).

Another update. Back at my original testing location for the past 1.5 weeks. Wireless has continued to work flawlessly on v15.8 from Intel. I hope Lenovo is looking into this version to fix wireless issues with the current Lenovo drivers.
