I dual-boot with Linux Mint and have no problem with Wifi on it or in my previous Vista instillation. So I know it is not a hardware problem. I have all the Windows 8.1 updates, it even game me some from Lenovo for the trackpoint. Do I need to get drivers from Intel for my Wifi?
EDIT: Found the solution. Windows 8/8.1 does not officially support the chipset ( Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG ), so they get generic wifi drivers. These do not work perfectly, but did work on install and let me finish install updates wirelessly!
Intel site and forums said to use Windows 7 drivers after installing Windows 8.1. This fixes problem of losing Wifi after sleep or closing lid.
