I had tried a different approach on this problem and so far so good, let me share my experience..
When I removed the battery on my laptop my wifi did not encounter any problem.. so maybe it was all in the settings.. what I did is.. power options > hp recommended change plan settings (my laptop is set on this one) >
change advanced power settings > wireless adapter settings > power saving mode > on battery: CHANGE TO
MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE.. my one was set to medium power saving.. > apply > OK...
Until now everything is running smoothly.. ^^

thanks for the update. So the problem is caused by the pw saving options of this dual graphic unit which cause several issue when not running in maximum performance.

Yes, it´s that what i mean, case some new models came with switchable graphics one of high performance and the other conserves power for longer battery life when handling less demanding applications, and when unplug the psu it change automatically to pw save mode which can cause this issues.
It´s a good idea from hp but need to be improved and i think they´re already working on that but will take time to solve this issues.
The better for now to not face out this problems is to change switchable graphics mode inside bios setup to fixed mode and change manually the pw mode you require.

Hi ive signed up to this just to answer this question because I know how frustrating it is!!! It did it with my mums HP laptop and now ive got one its doing it with mine and I have searched google and found the answer!!
If you have a wireless telephone. UNPLUG IT. Somehow its affected the conncection? Anyway I tried this as the last possible option as I thought there's no way it could be this.....and sure enough it works! No problems what so ever and my connection is perfect!!..so make sure you try it guys....and then get a new phone.
