this can help see if it is an OS issue or a wifi issue.
If you have a USB wifi card that is windows 8 compatible you could try that and see if you get the same results.
I have a feeling both Microsoft and hardware manufacturers are encountering teething problems with the different way wifi works on 8, and I would expect a few more OS fixes and driver release to be made over the next few months.
Actually, I had no issues with 8, though I never did get N connections, going to 7 is where I'm experiencing issues.

it is possible that your concern is "ping"
just my wild guess, might be the server is too far? so the latency is higher? correct me if im wrong
Games World of Tanks, and my issue with it, my ping s up generally 10-20, but routinely spikes now to over 300.
SPEEDTEST.NET IS MY BIGGEST difference with my d/l being hacked considerably, from 22 down to 3Mbps.
