  • Are you upgrading from Windows 8.0 64-bit to Windows 8.1 64-bit?  If so, you should not lose your connection to the router.  However, that does depend on whether the current driver is fully compatible with Windows 8.1 64-bit.

    If you don't mind providing more details about your situation it would help immensely in determining a valid response to your question.  It is absolutely impossible to provide a logical response without knowing significant details of you situation.

  • What is the version before you install Windows 8.1? Did you make a clean install?

    Please tell us more information on how you installed the Windows 8.1.

    If you perform a clean install/in-place upgrade, it will not keep the wireless connection.
