    OK, i just checked on the driver version for the wireless adapter and there is a new one out. I had ver v10.0.0.26 and now have 10.0.0.274. I just installed it and will see what happens.

    Have you uninstalled the old driver from Programs and Features ?

    I would have, but it's not listed. Even the new one isn't listed. I can see it when I right click on the adapter in device manager and the option to delete is also there. I didn't delete it as it seems to have replaced it. So far I haven't had a disconnect, but it's too early to tell.

    Wonder if that's an ASUS thing as all my Realtek drivers are listed in Programs & Features in my Toshiba, but hope the driver has fixed the disconnects.

    I think its a Realtek thing. Most Wireless drivers I've come across are only listed in Device Manger and not in Programs and features.

    I concur. It's rare to find a driver in Programs and Features.

    I am hoping this may have done the trick. My daughter was on her laptop for hours yesterday and today with no drops. I will keep an eye on it. I realize now I was misled, when I click to determine if I have the most current driver, it said I did even though I knew there was a newer one. I installed the new driver and all looks good so far. I will wait a few days as on occasion it would go without disconnecting for 2 days..... fingers crossed.

    Glad it seems to be working . As in previous situations, Windows 8.1 gets a bad rap because of faulty drivers and that is not Microsoft's fault.
