I seemed to have found a solution to my issue.
I was able to find a Win 7 driver that solves my Windows 8 driver issue with very slow and intermittent/dropped
wifi connections for the Dell 1510 N WLAN (Broadcom 4322) wifi adapter.
The driver I found is: Network_Driver_WD35F_WN_220.127.116.11_A37
I found it here:
The the auto installer will not run without error. However, it will allow you to extract the files from the driver
package to a directory of your choice. Then you can point Windows 8 driver change/update utility
('Have Disk') to that directory - 'Drivers/Win7/WL' and select the bcmwl6.inf to install a driver
I hope this helps others.
Did you try to run a Windows Experience Index under Windows 8? If yes does value seems normal? On my system everything seem to work fine but I cannot run the assessment at all. I doubt the driver for the Intel 965 Display Adapter is the culprit.
I'm confused - did the direct X 2010 patch as recommended by SpeedStep solve your wifi issue?
Or did the Win 7 Driver recommended by stevekesler solve your issue?
The direct X is marked as a potential solution, but I'm not sure how that is relative to Win 8 and slow wifi issue
I ran the Windows Experience Index under Windows 8 and it ran fine (rating 4.1). I believe this is similar to the Win 7 rating.
I am using a Dell Studio One (1909) All-in-One unit. Video is Geforce 9400. I replaced the hard drive with a SSD and clean installed W8. It is very responsive (shut down <10 secs, boot-up <15secs)
I would check your video driver and maybe check NVidia or ATI for an Win8 driver.
Your scores are pretty good. My studio is one year older and I can only get a poor 3.2 with Windows 7. This is of course the lower, Desktop Graphics Performance value. Other values are over five. As the computer's performance with Windows 8 is more than satisfactory I will not bother with the Windows Experience Index.
Thanks for your help.
