Idea centre B520 slow WiFi connection.

I recently bought a leno b520 all in one and I found out that WiFi connectivity is slow on that PC.

I tried with Opera, IE, Chrome and Firefox and the problem still exists. I even reinstalled the drivers and nothing has improved.

However, my Sony laptop performs just fine when I use it on the same network. Is anyone else experiencing this problem and if so when will a fix come out?

I tried this. My VAIO loads this site instantly and the speed is 9.76mbps down and 2.4 mbps up.

However my lenovo takes more than a minute to load this site and the speed is 0.2mb up and 23kbps down.

Did you ever find a solution to this issue?  I am having the same problem and cannot find anything that corrects it.

Re: Idea centre B520 slow WiFi connection.

better yet, my brand new IdeaCentre K4 gets 55mbs when hardwired to the router, but only 0.5 (yes, 1/100th of the download speed) when operating wirelessly, 3 feet away from the router! - help

Re: Idea centre B520 slow WiFi connection.

yes, all my other wireless devices get similar speed in the house, many of them being 25, 50 or even 75 feet away, as one would expect, hence the consternation about a brand new souped-up pc getting such incredibly low download speeds from 3 feet!

Re: Idea centre B520 slow WiFi connection.

Hi all,

Thanks for posting. Was reading through this thread and wonder which type of Wireless card has been installed in your machine. Is it the Intel, Atheroz or Broadcomm.

Do let me know.
