too many variables are involved with public networks. the routers may need a firmware upgrade to accomodate windows 8. there could also be differences in security settings of the router. wpa2 vs wep for example

Do you have a Ralink RT5390 wifi adapter? It seems to slow down if you get too far away from the router.

I did what I could from the doc - no difference. I do have the Ralink adaptor. I guess I have to accept that 2-3 bars of strength or less is a "show stopper" with this computer. My Acer didn't seem to mind it. Depressing.

Is your rotuer the Uverse RG? Or maybe the default Comcast/XFinity router?
I have Uverse, I grabbed a Belkin N750 at Wal-Mart for $70, used it and now the problem is solved. I have yet to test to see if the Ralink is running n, but the Uverse router was b/g. The router I bought also advertised a lot of distance on the signal, and my problem was if I left the room with the router I lost signal strength big time.
