so, I have upgraded my GE60 from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Since the on Windows 8, I have been noticing that my wifi just disconnects itself from the my router randomly and frequently (like every 5-10 mins sometimes) and then it displays the list of wifi networks but is unable to connect to any of the networks and I would have to either use troubleshoot network problem (Fix connection feature in windows) or disable and re-enable my network card to make it work. It is really annoying bug. I am definitely sure that it is some problem with the windows 8 drivers as this issue never existed on Windows 7.

steps I followed for troubleshooting:
- I have 2 routers and card doesn't connect to either of them, when in problem mode, so it is not the router.
- upgraded to latest drivers and bios, still no help.
- tried toggling "let windows control wifi card power state" in power option, and it didn't do anything.
- uninstalling and reinstalling drivers.
- Even when I am playing some online game, it disconnects itself and then don't connect unless I do the fix connection problems.
- Fix connection problem feature doesn't always help. Sometimes I would have to restart windows.

If the MSI dev team is reading this, please do something about it.

I have the same problem, and for some reason sometimes it gives me the result that I haven't been assigned an IP-address properly when I troubleshoot it and I'm unable to release/renew the ipconfig in the command line interface.
