Centrino Advanced-N 6230 and Windows 8

I have a Dell XPS 15 L502X laptop. It has this particular wifi adapter. I have the 15.3.50.2 driver installed. For some reason, it isn't particular good at staying connected. I drop connection to my wifi router and when I attempt to reconnect, it fails. I have a WinPhone, iPod Touch, 3 Android tablets and a Android phone connecting to this router with no issue. If I reboot into my Ubuntu partition it connects and remains connected just fine.

Is there any particular reason that when I'm running Windows 8 my wifi adapter refuses to work? Handled just fine with Windows 7.

Just to echo, I am having similar problems in Windows 8 with this adapter, using all 15.x drivers. Is it possible that I broke my adapter by installing the wrong driver?
