Just bought an Air 2 and am having the same WIFI issues that have been well documented on the net. My IP6 has the same issues on 8.1 and since its cellular I havent worried too much about it. Now that the Air 2 is WIFI only Im looking for a solution. Some of the chatter has died down and I dont see much discussion on here lately. Has there been a consensus reached on the disconnection WIFI issue? Im currently using an older DLink N router. Would my best bet be to buy an AC router and update to 8.1.2? My IP4 on 8.1 has no issues, so I believe its how 8.1xx talks to the new WIFI chipset in the new devices.
