Only my laptop keeps disconnecting from the internet

I recently got the Lenovo Y410P with Windows 8 installed on it and have been having troubles with the internet. It frequently doesn't let me use the internet, even though it still says I have full bars in the bottom right corner. When it isn't working, I check the internet on my other devices and it still works for them. If I manually disconnect from the wifi here, either by turning on airplane mode or by forgetting the connection to this router, and then reconnect, it instantly starts working again. I would try more solutions, but being that this is my first time experiencing Windows 8, I am not that familiar since it is quite different from Windows 7. Any help would be greatly appreciated since I am trying to re-download programs onto this machine and these disconnections keep interrupting the downloads. Thank you.

  1. Look for updated drivers for the wireless NIC. Also, if the NIC in the laptop is 802.11 bgn and your router is 802.11bg (not n) then disable the N on the NIC (use bg only), its worth a try.
