      Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 issues after upgrade to Windows 8.1

       

      When I try to connect to any Wireless network it goes through the following steps...

      -Checking Network Requirements

      -Connecting to the network is taking longer than usual

      -Can't connect to this network

      Then I close the WIFI menu and it shows "Connected"

      It won't remember the network upon reboot and the connected icon no longer looks like a WIFI icon, its an ENET icon (no enet cable connected).

       

      I've uninstalled the network adapter from device manager. Removed the drivers from Windows\System32\Drivers

      -NETwew00sys

      -Netwfw00.dat

      Rebooted and it auto installs the default Microsoft Windows 8.1 drivers for the device. - Same issue as above.


      I tried the same process above but instead of rebooting and letting it install the Microsoft default drivers I first installed the latest drivers from Intel

      (package Wireless_16.5.3_De164) - file version after install is 15.10.3.2 which Intel indicates is correct. Rebooted PC - Issue continues.

      I really don't know what else to do. It's not my Router as this is an issue anywhere I go, and my other devices (another Windows 7 and 8 (not 8.1)) work fine. This was working fine after installing Windows 8.1 on launch day but two days ago this became the issue.
