I have a Sony Vaio (SVF15213CDW), Windows 8, which I bought a couple of months ago. The WiFi was working perfect until a month ago when my laptop started to have connection issues. The WiFi works perfect on my phone and my friends' laptops but my laptop never shows connectivity greater than 2 out of 5 bars in the connection signals(even when I sat right next to the router it wouldn't give me full signals). I've updated the driver to the latest one and have removed the laptop from disconnecting the internet when the laptop goes to sleep but nothing seems to be working.

Please help!
