PC keeps losing connection to router

Since upgrading to windows 8 a few days ago my router keeps dropping my connection every few minutes . 4 other pc's in the house are fine. Mine has a wooden floor for the signal to pass through, my wifes which is fine has two walls between her and the router.

I'm fairly PC savvy but at a loss here.

Have you tried changing the channel number in the router's wireless settings?
