Wireless Fix for Samsung Ultrabook NP530U3C-A09UK

Bought this little ultrabook, an i3 core, for the wife, has W8 on board and a great little machine, except for the fact the wireless kept dropping out every time I/she used it and required significant fiddling to get it working again, only for it to drop out again.

Checking online found many people with the same problem, given that Samsung ultrabook all have the same wireless card, an Intel Centrino Advanced-n 6235.

My router was kicking out DHCP and WPA2-Personal

So how to fix:

  1. Went to the Intel site and download the very latest drivers
  2. In Settings for the card, changed from AES to TKIP encryption

Connection is immediate and solid now :)
