To make a short break from all the issues and problems we’ve been writing about Windows 8.1, today we’re going to talk briefly about top five new wireless networking features in Windows 8.1. I myself didn’t bother to see what has changed in the wireless network field with the advent of Windows 8.1, so some of these are also new to me, as well.

Wireless network in Windows 8.1

  • Support for 802.11ac – 802.11ac comes with better bandwidth and faster connections than previous 802.11n standard. This will improve the Wi-Fi speeds on your Windows 8.1 desktop device and tablet
  • Wireless Display – the Wireless Display with Miracast technology not lets you project your Windows 8.1 laptop or Windows RT tablet screen onto larger Miracast-compatible displays. Imagine playing one of the best Windows 8 games and have it screened on your huge TV.
  • Extended passwords use for enterprises – if you are part of an organization, you can bring your own wireless device running Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 to work. You will have to enter passwords only once during the wireless session.

I guess those of you that have issues with their Wi-Fi in Windows 8.1 are really disappointed that they can’t benefit from these awesome features. But follow the above link and let us know of your issue and we’ll try to work it out together. The same new wireless networking features have been made available for Windows Server 2012 R2, as well.
