Hey, I was having the same type of problems with a Lenovo ideapad z585 with Windows 8.  It has a Broadcom adapter.  I wound up going into the adapter's properties in network and sharing center.  Under the advanced tab there are many settings that can be changed.  Turned a lot of stuff on and off and long story short the one that fixed the problem was "Bluetooth Collaboration."  Disable it.  I think it allows you to share your Bluetooth device across a network through your wifi adapter.  I could be wrong on this because I didn't find a lot of info with a quick search but who cares.  My wifi works.

Hi  RLohman is correct. I had a problem with a new router and a Lenovo Miix 2 (Win 8). The tablet said "can't connect". I read RL's post, made the change, and hey presto. Thanks RL.

This worked for me too. Dell Inspiron 17 – new in January; Windows 8.1. Had been working fine but all of a sudden not. This could have been after I tried to use a Bluetooth headset but I'm not sure. In any case, in Control Panel > Device Manager, under Network Adapters, I have "Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-N 7260". I right-clicked, selected "Properties", Advanced tab … "Bluetooth(R) AMP" was enabled. I disabled it and now WiFi automatically connects again. This was driving me nuts. THANK YOU so much!

Lohman has left out one crucial step (at least in Windows 8.1): After you go into the Broadcom adapter's "Properties" you must open "Configure." There you will find the "Advanced" tab, and "Bluetooth Collaboration."

its the network card!! Рnewer routers have newer protocols so communication is not happening. To put simply Рwindows 7/8 is sending info to router but it does not understand it -  it therefore asks for password РI went through trying all the things suggested in the discussion forums but nothing worked until I changed my network card (was only 12 months old) for a wireless pci one 802.11 b/g/n n300 that was backwards compatible and everything will auto connect that is in range Рjust have to set order of priority if several networks are in range Рhope this helps

Neil is right!  I had two $5 "N" adapters for Windows XP, 7 & 8.  One connects automatically and the other asks for my passcode every time.  It can't remember the code.  That adapter software also has two different passcode abilities and the adapter that remembers the code has only one, WEP.

I have tried everything from any board I've read and I still have connectivity issues with my Toshiba.  Nothing is working and I am beyond pissed!  I've updated every driver available several times, I have changed the IP to use the dns google 8.8.8.8 nothing.  I made sure my adapter does not auto shut off to save power, I tried disabling the bluetooth thing.  

 

Everything worked until windows 8.1 was forced on my computer.  I need a real solution.  Months of this crap is not working.  Every computer works fine but the one with 8.1.  Microsoft either fix my computer or send me one that works!

Disculpe por el idioma, queria dar mi aportacion al respecto del wifi.

Estuve con este problema buen rato con un Toshiba Satellite p845t y despues de tratar de buscar el driver adecuado para mi Centrino Wireless N2200, nada funcionaba, baje los dos que estaban en Intel y nada, entonces me fui a la opcion de instalar driver manualmente y en la opcion que te da encontre 4 controladores propios del instalador de windows 8.1 Pro, en una lista y precisamente los tres primeros tenian terminacion de Intel, y el ultimo era Microsoft, entonces elegi el ultimo y actualice el driver y todo empezo a funcionar normal con el wifi en la laptop. espero sirva esta experiencia.

I'm also having problems with windows 8 on a toshiba desktop. Originally, I managed to get wifi to work for a few months, and then it stopped. In trying to fix it, I 'disabled' the settings which deleted them. Now I can't get the computer to see my wifi network or the Ethernet cable at all…this is a complete waste of money without Internet access! Any suggestions for what I can do? My wifi works fine on all my Apple products…but my work software does not.

I just bought a new Gateway computer with Windows 8. I need to re-enter the wifi password, but I CAN NOT RIGHT CLICK THE WIFI NETWORK. I have accessed the wifi network profiles via command line prompt "netsh" but it doesn't show the wifi profile. I don't care about any of this. I just want to get my computer to connect to my home wifi. Why is this so difficult?

I have the same problem I got a Toshiba satellite c855 for "school Work" XD, 

but it really gets annoying every time i close the laptop is disconects from the network and i have to open up networks and reconnect it myself but the worst part is that sometimes i click the network symbol at the bottom right of my screen and it does nothing so i have to turn it off and this means i have less time to do my "school work" haha but joking aside it is a really annoying problem that i would like to fix if anyone knows how Thanks

Like everything in Windows 8, the wi-fi connection at power up doesn't work properly.  And it looks like support and replies from Microsoft to issues about Windows 8 doesn't work properly either.  It is like Microsoft is being ran by adolescents.

Windows 8 doesn't connect every time to wi-fi, and it is not drivers or hardware, it is the darn Windows 8, which turned out to be such rubbish.  Nothing works properly.

Well, I should say that if what you want to do is to send happy faces to your grandma, that probably works, although I haven't tried.  But if you want to do some work, see if you can get a copy of Vista or Windows 7, or even XP 64 bits.

Even getting to the power off button is a game of treasure hunting.  What a piece of trash.

NO, Windows 8 doesn't connect properly automatically to wi-fi, and it is NOT the drivers, it is the darn Windows 8. So, Mr. Microsoft, stop blaming the drivers, and go fix it, will you?¬† Where is Bill Gates when you need him?…

I have the same issue.

 

I have Win 8 Pro on an ASUS mb x401a laptop that won't reconnect to the house's wifi after it wakes from sleep, hibernation or rebooting (cold or warm).

The troubleshooter doesn't see a problem, I'm using Avast AV, Spybot's Teatimer but none of those have caused issues once the wifi connection is manually re-established.

 

The warning is of limited connectivity so it's not that the network isn't seen, and I don't have to re-enter the security key so it's not losing it.

 

My laptop is ALWAYS plugged in and the power settings are set to Maximum Performance.

 

I'm having some serious compatibility issues with Win 8 and my brain.

This issue seems to be a mutual one and it's not with the PC's instead, it seems to be on Windows 8 because, I get the same on Sony laptop, Lenovo laptop and HP desktop.

 

We will soon be posting an article on how to solve these problems. Stay tuned!

no, the metered option is not selected. and when it goes off I sometimes can't get back on, I have to shut down 3,4,5, or more times before I can get back on.

Have you installed all the latest updates for Windows 8? If, yes then, there might be some problem with the drivers of you PC. You can try getting the latest drivers from HP for Wi-Fi or Ethernet, which you are using.
