Lenovo IdeaPad 500S-13ISK, Atheros QCA9377 Slow WiFi Problem Win10

Hi !

I bought new laptop two months ago and  have frustrating problem with WiFi performance.

My internet connection is 20Mbit and max 20ms ping, but max speed measured by speedtest on my new laptop is 2-3Mbit and 80ms ping. Unfortunately videos are not loading, and everything is buffering sooo long.

I tried reinstalling drivers with no luck. I've read about problems with Atheros wireless drivers and Win10 but i haven’t found any solution on internet working for me.

Any suggestions ?

If are connecting at 2.4GHz, try disabling the Bluetooth adapter.   Bluetooth uses the same 2.4GHz used by WiFi, and use to eat my bandwidth, so I turn it off when not using it, wich is most of the time.

  • Right click on start, select Device Manager
  • Double Click on Bluetooth to expand
  • Right click on your Bluetooth adapter and select Disable

To re-enable, just do the same steps, only choose Enable.

 

Also try turning off location when not needed., it is constantly checking your location and can eat bandwidth too.

  • Windows Key plus A to open Action Center
  • Select All Settings
  • Select Privacy
  • Select Location
  • Turn Location Service off
  • Select Location and turn it off when not needed.
