i own a Pavilion dv7-6c90el that i updated at windows 8 two weeks ago. Every week a problem occure: my pc can't connect to any wifi, and i can't disable the wifi card, it doesn't respond, so i have to switch off many times the pc until it begins to work again (after many times you can enter in connection menu and disable the card and then switch on it other time and then works). i suppose is a driver problem (with windows 7 this problem never appeared). can you resolve it?thanks in advance

Have you tried the Realtek driver for your card directly from the Realtek site?
Select the 8188CE, click on step 2, and you will be directed to the driver page.

i tried but after two days i have the same problem and now is also badder,because at the download page of my notebook there is a new BIOS version (F.1B) that,in the changelog, says that resolve a problem with the wireless button,so i supposed that could help me. i updated and it did the opposite effect, now my HP connection manager,that use the wifi button, doesn't start saying that it is a problem (error 80080005). And now when the wifi problem appears it is harder resolve it because i can't switch off the wifi card (if i do it from the menu on control panel it doesn't respond)...i suppose that there are many incompatibilities between realtek wifi card, windows 8 drivers and also the new bios!!!

I too am having issues with my internet connection dropping out randomly. My wireless adapter is a RTL8188EE 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter.
I visited the realtek site and could not find a listing for for that adapter under the driver's section. My current operating system is Windows 8. I have also disabled the Microsoft Kernel Debug Network Adapter.
Any help would be appreciated.
