Re: Tab 4 10 plus wifi/internet problem - fix please!!

2018-09-12, 7:13 AM

It worked fine...... but only for a short period. Now the problem is back again. My solution this time: despite the fact it’s only 6 months old I’ll dump it in an electronics recycling container. Bye Lenovo, never a product from your company again as this is not the first problematic item from your company!!!

You were right! My solution stopped working. I’m finished with this product and it is on it’s way to an electronics recycling container!

I’ve found a permanent solution: the tablet is on its way to an electronics recycling container. I’ve spend hours and hours trying to solve this. I’m finished with this tablet (and with Lenovo as well).

84 MB download from memory - it was available about 12 hours ago in Australia. It definitely seems to have fixed the 5 GHz wi-fi issue - Hallelujah!

Ahh, darn, I have the TB-X704V. Still, it's a sign of life, and hopefully mine is soon to follow. The XDA article from the other day suggested that they were done with updates at all, so maybe they're reconsidering. One can hope.

Software update today in germany, but this problem is already there. Try to find a repair service in germany through the lenovo webpage, and it shows me on in north africa...

 

Stay away from lenovo tablets folks!

That’s a very wise advice. I bought the new 8 inch Lenovo tablet. After about 6 months the wifi problems started and many many frustrations later and no service at all from Lenovo I threw it in the recycling container and decided to spend more money on buying something of decent quality and therefore went for an Apple device. What a relief! Lenovo is far far away from Apple and can only dream of being in their reach.

After Googling about Routers I found out why I was loosing Wifi all the time.

 

It was NOT my Lenovo TAB 4 10 Plus.

 

I found out the 3 key elements that are important for good steady performance:

 

1. Placement of the router ( Place it high and at a central place ( Mine is about 150 cm above the floor ) and not close to speakers, electrical appliances like microwave ovens or large metal objects.

 

2. Wireless Channel ( I found out that channel 1 worked best for me ).

 

3. Channel Width ( I thought the more the better but I was wrong, I now use 20 MHz, My router have the 2.4 Ghz Band ).

 

Google these 4 things:


1. Router Placement
2. Router Channel
3. Router Channel Width
4. Router 2.4 Ghz or 5 GHz

 

There are good apps like Wifi Analyzer, Wifi Strength meter and Wi-Fi Channel Analyzer 2 that will help you to see what is going on.
