[HELP] Y510P limited connectivity and weak signal after upgrading to Windows 8.1

2013-11-25, 8:59 AM

So I purchased a y510p from a retailer yesterday and was very happy with it. First thing I did was update to Windows 8.1. After updating, I get VERY unreliable, weak wi-fi signals and limited connectivity on all wi-fi connections. I need help, fast! My wireless card is Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230.

hi yan3321,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

Can you try to:

1. Press Windowskey+R type appwiz.cpl. On the list of programs, uninstall any trace of Intel Wiress Driver and Bluetooth Software

2. Download and install the following:

Intel WLAN Driver for 64-bit Windows

Version: 16.5.1.6 
 
Version: 3.1.1307.360 

 

The blueooth driver/software is needed as the Intel Centrino N2230 is a wifi/bluetooth combo adapter. After you install the above drivers, turn off or disable bluetooth then try connecting to your wifi network.

 

If you still get limited connectivity, try to boot in Safe Mode with Networking and observe.

  - If internet works fine there, temporarily disable/uninstall any running firewall/security software and observe it in normal mode.

  - If you have an invalid IP (i.e. 169.254.x.x) and you have a separate modem/router. Try to turn it off and turn it back on after 10secs (turn ON the modem first and when all the lights are ON, turn the router ON and reconnect). If you have a router/modem combination, you can just turn it off for 10-20secs and turn it back ON.

 

Let me know how it goes

 

 

Regards

Re: [HELP] Y510P limited connectivity and weak signal after upgrading to Windows 8.1

Hello,

 

since I've met similliar problems on my y510P, I tried to perform this solution. I cannot uninstall all Intel Wireless drivers properly though (actually I can't uninstall it at all). The uninstall process stops at some point, displays the message that the installator was't ran properly. Then it go backwards with all the changes and the driver stays on my computer.

Any ideas, how to get rid of it?

 

I have win 10 on my computer, but the installed driver seems to be for win8 (when I try to simply update intel Wifi drive with a win 10 installer from Intel site, I get the message that the current version of the driver cannot be updated with this version of installer)
