This is a little early I suppose, but I noticed one single driver from apple's windows driver package isn't working: the wireless network one. It's kind of a pain since I don't have an ethernet adapter.

Would anyone who tried 8.1 on the new airs have found a fix?

Oddly enough I am running Windows 8.1 on my 2010 MBP and I have the opposite problem. The ethernet adapter cuts out after a few minutes from booting into Windows but my wireless adapter works great. sorry, I know you are talking about the Air but I just thought it was interesting that you are having wireless troubles.

I had this on my new Macbook Air 2013 - the Wifi driver didn't work after the Bootcamp install package completed. But I just ran the install manually and it worked fine.

The file I had to run was f:\BootCamp\Drivers\Broadcom\BroadcomNetAdapterWin8x64.exe (where f was the USB drive that the Bootcamp software got put on).

Stupid I didn't think of this myself, since it went through Apple's installation wizard I figured it was a driver problem, not a problem with the install.

Thank you very much.
