    Hey guys. I play a lot of games in Bootcamp through Steam and have games on an external HD. When I plug the drive in, I lose internet access. I haven't found much about this issue online and it only affects me in Windows. As soon as I eject the drive, the internet connection is restored. Has anyone experienced something like this? I'm on a rMBP 2013. Thanks!

    Try 5ghz wireless instead of 2.4ghz, if you can.
