    I have had a lot of issues when I use wifi and bluetooth with my windows 8.x PCs
    I have disabled one feature of the wifi card.
    It is better even if it is not perfect.
    You can try too.

    Nope, my signal strength is completely full. I never connect to weak signals to begin with. It normally happens when you have both Bluetooth and Wifi on at the same time though you don't necessarily have to be connected to anything via Bluetooth; it just has to be on.

    I also have similar problem but it happened frequently when I tried to watch a long streaming video.

    I was tired of rebooting the tablet to get the WiFi back. I figured that you can disable and re-enable the WiFi adapter in device manager with performing a full reboot.

    I automated this with a batch file on the desktop with these 2 lines:

    netsh interface set interface "Wi-Fi" admin=disable
    netsh interface set interface "Wi-Fi" admin=enable


    Be sure to launch the batch file with "Run as Administrator".

    Hope it helps others with similar WiFi issue until Dell comes up with a permanent fix.

    I started experiencing wifi issues this week where it would just drop out for no apparent reason. If I try to slide the wifi bar to the off position the block will slide right back. If I put my DVP8 into airplane mode wifi will turn off but it will not turn back on. The only way to reconnect is to restart my DVP8. Others have experienced this issue so I know it isn't me. I'll try reloading the drivers & see if that helps.

    Hi, I have a Venue 8 Pro and experience these same issues with wifi:
    1. tends to drop in the middle of extended downloads/streaming/youtube
    2. when it drops, it shows as unavailable and doesn't see my router or any of the others in the area
    3. attempting to reset it by turning the wifi slider off fails and it just reverts back to on
    4. each time this happens, a failure log is created/appended at C:\AR6K_FW_Recovery.log
    5. driver restart is required to reconnect, either by reboot or toggling advanced driver properties like the roaming aggressiveness setting

    I've made a thread on Dell's forum if anyone who gets the C:\AR6K_FW_Recovery.log would like to help collect details: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/mobile-devices/f/4586/t/19603660

    I keep having Wi-Fi issues. The signal strength is high, but a continuous ping to any device on my lan shows varying latency between 1 ms and 1200ms. A reboot resolves. It's going back to Dell for repair.
