Just bought my X220 a few weeks ago and lately started having issues with the wifi. The wifi tends to loose connection every now and then. Especially when I stream a video etc. or even just my gmail. I then have to use the diagnose tool and the tool ends up resetting the wifi adapter and then it works...for a while. Any ideas? Btw, the router is fine, since my Mac does not do this.
- Win 7 Prof version
-Intel Wifi Link 1000

There's got to be more people having this issue? My sons new Z570 also started having the same problem. Seems to me it's a windows 7 problem. I have tried turning off the firewall, but no difference. I tried updatiing the wifi adapter driver and it says it's up to date, I have moved very close to the wifi router and still same issue. It always happens when I start streaming something or visit a website that downloaads a lot page data. Is there a lenovo help desk number? I have a 3-yr warranty on the darn thing!
PS. I have an old xp desktop and a iMac that have NO issues like this. It's defintely not the router (Airport Extreme).
