    I think I’ll wait until I can find a nice 802.11ac/b/g/n + Bluetooth combo card.

    What do you mean by nice?

    From which manufacturer?

    I suppose that was just a figure of speech. I have yet to see even one such offering. Nice or Good suggest an alternative or a point in a range of possibilities. So in this case it would have to be an exemplarily offering out of many but again I have to see even one.

    I can say after more than 2 weeks later the Bluetooth and Wifi in Windows 8 Pro x64 with this new Intel Centrino Wifi/Bluetooth Wireless N 6235 card doesn't drop and the mouse wakes up the computer with a couple of shakes.

    Goat which driver are you using? I tried to install the intel driver running win8 but get the message to install ms net framework 3.5 first. I went to ms downloads and win8 already has framework 4. installed but intel still won't allow their driver to be installed, any ideas? How did you do it?
    Thanks, great posts btw

    Just let it install .net framework anyway - it will work fine.
    Mine ran fine from the Win 8 install after - no other work needed.

    Just one problem with that, the window drivers do not support widi, can not extend my screen. widi demands different drivers, at least on my tablet.

    P.S., put in 240 GB hard drive and works flawlessly. Now I have a lot of storage and with the new wifi card if I can get the new or proper intel drivers in it will give me a great little tablet.
