In 8.0 people were able to stop the limited connection issuesI by disabling the selective suspend option in the Wi-Fi driver properties. I noticed that in 8.1 it went back to being checked enabled.
Thanks. Turned it off. Let's see if that is it. Still seems to take forever to connect though. My PC connects pretty much instantly.In 8.0 people were able to stop the limited connection issuesI by disabling the selective suspend option in the Wi-Fi driver properties.

Too much power can create major snr problems in a noisy environment. There are a couple dd-wrt posts regarding it. Also, remember that just because the router is transmitting that hot does not mean your tablet will. So you might see 5 bars but the router won't see 5 bars from you.Ok, reduced my router to transmit at 71 mW (the default curiously) and now I can connect just fine 5 feet away. Apparently I was overwhelming my SP with the sheer power of the signal. That along with my electric personality just proved too much
Also even at 71 mW my wireless extender seems to still be in the green signal-wise so it's all good.
I have the newer driver; however, since reducing the power on my router to 71 mW I have not had any connection issues. I think I was just overpowering it when nearby.@mitchellvii, which driver version you have for the Marvell Avastar 350N on the SP? I switched to version 14.69.17056.73, 11/16/2012. Already 1 week no problems whatever anymore. A steady 270.0 Mbps connection, all the time. Maybe you can try it.
btw I have Selective Suspend enabled(default in 8.0)
