My laptop came with Windows 8 preinstalled in it. The WIFI was working fine then. After that I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and then to Windows 10. There were no issues with the WIFI connectivity. After some days my laptop started to hang and then ultimately it crashed. I deleted Windows 10 and installed Windows 8.1. But during the installation, I was unable to connect to my home WIFI. I skipped that step but after installation also I was unable to connect to my home WIFI. In both the cases, it is showing that the connection is limited. But when i install Windows 10, I am able to connect to the WIFI during the installation process and also use it after installation.
I do not want to install Windows 10 since my laptop crashes in a few days everytime I do it. I want to install Windows 8.1 but I am facing this connectivity issue. Please help.
