I have Windows 8 on my primary desktop computer andam using the Windows 8 startup button addon to run the classic interface once logged in. I initially get a strong wireless connection on my 5 GHz link, but after about 20 seconds I get a "no connection available" indication If I wait a while, I'll either get "connections available" or get reconnected. No further problems. Why should I get connected, then disconnected, then connected again? I never had a problem like this with Windows 7.
