G50-80 - Disconnecting from WiFi

2016-04-23, 1:49 AM

Hi,

 

I have a Lenovo G50-80 and I keep running into this problem sometimes. My laptop is connected to my wifi network and it will randomly disconnect from the wifi and the will be a red "x" in the notification section in the bottom right hand corner and when I click it to select a wifi network it says that there are no available networks. My roommates laptop doesn't ever disconnect from the wifi even when mine does so it's not the network. Anybody have any suggestions or solutions to my problem?

I have this problem.  Usually happens a few times in a row then it's fine.  Nothing wrong with my wifi, all the other devices stay connected.

I'm having this issue, too. I've narrowed it down to using Bluetooth and WiFi simultaneously and streaming video... When I don't use the Bluetooth, the WiFi Internet stays connected.... With the Bluetooth, the Internet drops, and it can't connect again. After a while it can't find the network. Eventually, the wifi become unfunctional altogether and the symbol changes to a circle shape. There's also some issue if you put the computer to sleep. Sometimes, I've turned off Bluetooth, and the Internet can be found again...

It's a mystery...

 

Update:

I checked all the drivers for latest version for all bluetooth components... they were all "up to date". I uninstalled and autodetected the computer bluetooth. Also, I repositioned my bluetooth reciever to near the ceiling. The internet hasn't seemed to drop... but it's super slow... almost unusable.

 

When I turn off the Bluetooth, now the Internet seems to work just fine, and my computer responds well, etcetera....

 

I'm pretty sure something is wrong with the radio bluetooth/wifi on this computer's hardware design or drivers. Maybe they are too close? Or, the drivers need adjustment?
