I have the same WIFI problem. The connection drops and the internet stops working. When I go to Settings, I see the WiFi connection is limited. In order for me to connect to the internet again, I have to disconnect from the Wifi source and reconnect again. This happens approximately every 30 minutes.

 

My computer is Lenovo G580, purchased brand new on Nov 20, 2012, just 2 weeks old!!!

I purchased 2, brand new Lenovo G580 2 weeks ago and both experiences WiFi connection problem. The internet connection stops and becomes Limited, but the wifi signal is still strong. The only temporary solution is to disconnect from the wifi and reconnect again at least every 30 minutes. Please fix this problem LENOVO.

There might be a bad production batch of Lenovo G580. The wifi problem is occurring on several users as well. Lenovo, please take action on this problem.

So far, no solution yet. Do you have a Broadcom wireless N chip in your system?

Can we please have a solution to this problem? I have bought a couple of these Lenovo G580 laptops for our business and cant use the wireless because it disconnects all the time. It is not my routers as I have other devices that work perfectly. The Lenovo's do it at work as well as home. I have not seen any replies to this thread from any support agent. I use Lenovo in my business and I expect better support. If you cant help us. Give us our money back and we will use another brand. Seriously?????

Exact same problem as others have mentioned. Wifi keeps dropping and says limited connectivity. I talked to the tech support (took an hour) and he just re-installed the driver! 

 

Problem still exist. I bought this laptop 2 says ago (Dec 5, 2012) and this is just so disappointing to get this crappy laptop. I was also told that this is because of windows 8! I dont know if this will turn out like Vista. 

 

Anyone find anything that worked to fix it? I am going to send it back if this continues.
