Hey guys, I have this weird problem with windows 8. When I had windows 7, I had no problems with my wifi on my desktop. I installed Windows 8 and now my computer is really slow to connect to the wifi. When it does connect, there are no problems, but it takes 5-10 minutes to even detect a connection. I have tried updating my drivers and disabling ipv6 and resetting ipv6 and ipv4, but the problem persists. Can anyone help me out?

I have been having connection issues using hardline to my DIR-655 router. I've bypassed the router and issues seem to disappear. I would suggest trying a hard line to your router, then also bypassing the router and check your results. I am thinking that Win 8 has issues with routers.

Side note, all my other devices have no issue with the wireless or hard line to the DIR-655
