MBWE (White Light) Disconnecting with Win 8?

I’ve noticed my MBWE (white light) disconnecting from the network a lot lately, requiring a hard reboot.  I’ve seemed to narrow it down to my wife’s new Win 8 laptop trying to connect to the drive wirelessly.  It is usually able to connect to the drive, but also seems to be causing these disconnects.

This is the first time I’ve had this problem - the drive has worked pretty much flawlessly up until now.

AFAIK is not going to perform well on Win 8

not sure if an update will be available

drive works with Win 7 and Vista
