Re: New y510p with a wifi problem

Well, #1 did not work and #2 does not apply to me. I can say that the wifi works fine, when I turn off security setting on my router. I have also uninstalled Macafee. Should I still check out my wifi in .... safe mode? It doesn't seem like that should help, given what I have just explained.

hi wagraham,

 

You could check if you can stream videos / download some files without issues to isolate if there's something in the background that's your problem in normal mode.

 

Try also these options:

1. If you have the Intel Wireless N2230, update the to the latest driver below: (to know the model of your WiFi card, press Win+R > type devmgmt.msc. On the Device Manager, navigate to Network Adapters)

 

Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 8*

 

2. On the Device Manager > Network Adapters > right click on your wifi card > choose properties and under the advanced properties tab, set the following settings:

 

802.11n Mode = Auto

Wireless Mode = 802.11b/g or 802.11b/g/n

 

 

Best regards,

neokenchi

As it stands, I downloaded and installed 15.8.0.5 drivers for my Intel wifi card, and it seems to have resolved the problem. Apparently, these were not the original drivers not the updated Intel drivers---but they were Lenovo's 4/26 driver set. This has, for now, improved my situation. Perhaps it will for others? I will update the forum tomorrow, if it has fixed my problem.

 

Warmly,

 

Wyatt

Can you provide the link of that Lenovo Wlan driver that you have downloaded recently?

 

Since you alleged that you are using Lenovo's latest driver, does this mean that Lenovo has made their own driver?

I might have been mistaken about the Lenovo driver. Sorry. But Intel driver 15.8.0.5 has made my connection more stable. But other problems have come up.

I have made my connection more stable through using the drivers that I listed above. However, I found that if I connect a blue tooth device (my mouse in this case), then the wireless connection drops off frequently and I have less bandwith. Has anyone else experienced a conflict between bluetooth devices and n2230 wifi cards?

Re: New y510p with a wifi problem

I've had my Y510p for a week and have consistent problems with WiFi.  I'm positive it's the laptop, because the issue happens at home with a Cisco E2000, at a friends house with a Netgear WGR614v9 and at work with an older D-Link DIR-601.

 

I've followed the steps in the thread, upgraded the driver, checked and updated the Intel PROset settings and it still drops the connection constantly.

 

I can't just go into other peoples router settings and adjust them, but I did looke at my settings on the E2000, at home, and everything is fine.

 

I previously owned a Y580, a MacBook Pro, Toshiba Satellite and we have an HP All-in-One...none of which have problems. 

 

I then thought it may be possible to change the Intel Centrino N-2300 to something reliable, but then discovered you run into problems with the BIOS and I don't want to do anything to void a warranty. 

 

What is one to do at this point?  I frankly don't want to troubleshoot a WiFi adapter that has more pages of complaints and problems than Apple Maps.

Beside updating the driver you might want to take a look at the following:


Wireless Networking: What are the recommended settings for 802.11n connectivity?

 

http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/sb/CS-030709.htm

 

Intel® Centrino® WiFi Products: Possible interference by other wireless devices may impact 802.11n performance.

Data rate will not exceed 54 Mbps when WEP or TKIP encryption is configured:

No, calling them is useless. I've called them, sent them my laptop for repair since the guy on the phone couldn't fix it, and when I got my laptop back it still has the same exact problem. Seriously lenovo, you should know how to fix your products. This is some bull**bleep**.
