[Y580] Win 8.1 WIFI dropping

Hello dear Lenovo-community!

 

Since my upgrade to Windows 8.1 I've been experiencing problems with my WIFI on my Lenovo Y580.

 

I have ruled out that it's my Router or connection (other devices have zero problems).

 

WIFI drops 4-8 times per hour, pretty consistently (timewise).

 

I have searched the web for about 10 hours, trying different things (changing wifi driversettings, changing router settings, back to factory settings, numerous things).

 

What can I do? As a gamer, this drives me nuts!

BUMP. This issue is still persisting. I've spent more hours researching what it could be, but can't find one with my setup. HALP!

I finally found a solution after 2 days of going through fourms.
First, follow this guide. Just the section about Power Save Mode of the Wi-Fi Adapter.

http://woshub.com/limited-wi-fi-access-in-windows-8-1/


Disable power saving mode for wifi.
Then, UNCHECK EVERYTHING BUT:

Client for Microsoft Networks
QoS Packet Scheduler
File and Print Sharing
Internet Protocol Version 6
Internet Protocol Version 4
