I have the latest drivers (Intel wifi, there are no Intel drivers for the chipset working on Win8RP at this point...) for my Dell Latitude E5500 laptop.

The driver just provides the "dialog" between the device and the OS. But the OS can simply stop pulling/sending data, right?
Explanation, why I need this personally:
Personally, I have a traffic limit on my cable internet provider. I just don't have any other possbility, then to check out their webpage for how much traffic I have left. I am provided with 6 GB per 7 following days.
Somebody at MS could have thought about this one as it is common outside of the US and because there already was the code for wireless connections.
