Occasional wifi drop recently on windows 8

I upgraded my computer from windows 7 to windows 8 on day 1, relatively no problems since then.

About last week I started having trouble with wifi, not sure if its HP bios updates or Windows 8 general updates that may have caused the problem. It's not that it disconnects often, its more like once every few days. Still an annoying problem when I'm working on something and I have to go into my wifi connection and disconnect then reconnect. Any fixes?

Its not the router connection, I've checked it at the same time on my phone and ipad and it's working fine.

Making sure all your drivers are up to date, the only other thing you could try is to reboot the router. Unplug it from the AC outlet and let is set for a minute and the plug it back in.
