I am using a hp spectrext ultrabook with windows 8 ,connected to a wifi router with wep encryption. The problem is that I am getting intermittent connection. i have even had my wireless nic card changed but the issue persists.

I am using a 2wire 2701hgv-e modem router. I don't think its a modem/router issue because I am getting intermittent connection elsewhere too.

How should I diagnose this problem??

does your wired connection also give you trouble ? –  Shekhar Apr 22 '13 at 14:22
If you had your card changed, you probably did this already, but just in case: have you checked your network card drivers? –  Ariane Apr 22 '13 at 14:25
