The issue is firmware in routers.
You can turn of the Power saving features and use CAM mode.
Intel® Centrino® Wi-Fi Products Power save polling (PSP) causes connection issues with access points.
The following symptoms can happen if a Wi-Fi access point (AP) or broadband Wi-Fi router does not support the power save polling (PSP) feature:
Using battery power can cause these symptoms to be noticeable.
Cause:PSP mode is a feature that provides extended battery life for laptop computers. The mode requires coordination between the AP or router and the Wi-Fi adapter. Intel has discovered that some APs or routers may not implement the feature correctly or completely.
Contact the AP or router vendor for updated software or firmware to correct the problem.
Alternate Solution:An optional workaround is to manually put the Wi-Fi adapter into continuously aware mode (CAM). This disables the PSP feature. Set CAM by using one of the following methods:
Set CAM using Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility

I've had the same issues and came here looking for an answer. I have a Dell Inspiron running Windows 8. I adapted the info from SpeedStep's reply for my computer. Here's what I did.
Open up control panel, then click on-network and internet-view active networks-connections
When you click on Connections it will open up your Wi-Fi status. Under Activity click Properties and choose the Networking tab. Click Configure and choose the Power Management tab. Uncheck the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" box. Click OK.
You should try upgrading your firmware on your router or have your internet service provider do this if they provide the router. Worked for me!
