Re: Y700 slow wifi speed

With the same drivers and card, I am getting much better speeds:

Here's my Speedtest, given that I have a 100/6 plan and this connection is 802.11AC:

Have you tried rebooting your router?

Re: Y700 slow wifi speed

Its this the out of the box build? What OS? Have you run the OneKey Optimizer and Update which automatically checks for driver updates and more.

No information on anything and No answer available. Guessing doesn't work on Computers.

 

Its new and warranty. Call Tech Support and they can go through it.

Re: Y700 slow wifi speed

Some of the driver don't allow us to see what mode the WiFi card is connecting in. EG 11g, 11n or the Band 2.4 or 5GHZ. I know my Alteros 61x4 doesn't. Intel's drivers usually do and can specify which band to use.

Do you know which and what its using of what your router is capable of. I know 5Ghz does not have the range that 2.4 does and I have to be a lot closer to the router.

You may have to have tech look at it. They can remote connect to the system and go over things. If this came with Windows 10 it should work already.

Re: Y700 slow wifi speed

I'm not sure how to respond without providing many more specifics, but my Y700 is new out of the box.  In my office location I am approx 30 ft from my wifi router.  This machine is showing speedtest DL @ 3.00 Mps, and if I move even 10 feet closer to the router it jumps to 24 Mps, which is a normal speed for me on my previous machine.  My previous HP got the full 24 Mps or more here in the office location.  To me this seems to clearly be an antenna issue within the Y700.  This is a great disappointment after buying this machine.  Other than going out and buying a wifi repeater closer to this room, I'd sure appreciate any helpful suggestions/updates/workarounds.  Thank you

Re: Y700 slow wifi speed

Unforunately I am having the same issue and to be honest it is quite ridicilous.

 

Is not there any Lenovo representative already suggested a solution in regards to this?

 

Wired speed test: 16Mbps

Wireless speed test: 1.7 Mbps

 

I bought a laptop for gaming but I can't even use it for the intended purpose?!?
