Ideapad Flex 14 - Ryzen 5 4500u

2020-07-03, 18:33 PM

Hello all, 

 

I just purchased a Flex 14 with a Ryzen 5 4500u for my wife two days ago.  It's had nothing but wifi issues since we've brought it home.  Her previous Asus laptop had no issues at all.  From what I've read the issue is related to the Realtek 8822CE LAN adapter.  Has anyone else had issues with this particular laptop and have you found a solution?  

 

I've updated windows, uninstalled and reinstalled the adapter, then installed fresh drivers.  I've tried 2 drivers so far and they haven't solved the problem.  

 

The issue arises with heavy bandwidth usage - Netflix, downloading a game on Steam, etc...  The issue effects the router as well, as the network will drop entirely for 5 minutes everytime a large download starts.

Well, we ended up returning the model with the Realtek 8822CE and picking up a model with an Intel AX201 wireless adapter.  Lo and behold, there are absolutely no more issues. None.

Buy Intel AX200 (13$ on Ali), AX201 incompatible with AMD.

I thought about doing that but since this is a brand new laptop I didn't want to risk voiding a warranty. I also don't see why I should spend any more money to fix a brand new laptop.
