Re: New y510p with a wifi problem

All,

 

If you have the broadcom / atheros cards, Lenovo did release updated drivers in July.

 

Here is the Windows 8.1 version

 

Here is the Windows 7 version

 

For those who are encountering drops or reduced throughput, please confirm which card you have and which drivers you have loaded.

 

Thanks

 

Mark

Re: New y510p with a wifi problem

2014-08-26, 22:25 PM

I have downloaded and installed the latest version from Intel and I have been running for 3 days straight w/ no drop-offs.  The only setting I changed was to disable the bluetooth. i still run at varying speeds, but that has more to do w/ where my laptop is situated in my house as this has happened w/ all my laptops to date.

My details are below:

Wireless Card: Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230
Download from Intel: Wireless_16.11.0_e164
Latest Driver: 15.12.0.6

I had same problem with Y510P

when connected by wifi to new and faster internet connection and router i got speed = 1 Mb/s sometimes 2Mb

I was changing channels of router, and all rest of things that were mentioned before and no result.

 

But when I turned off Bluetooth, at speed tests I got at last proper scores around 50 Mb/s

 

thanks for this tips, it worked good, beer for You guys !

 

and BIG MINUS for lenovo company for delivering us broken drivers for our laptops. If they wont fix it this year my next laptops will be from other company and I will also put attention on it if they did take care of this or not.

At least we all got forums to say is it worth to buy some products of Lenovo or not.. just for future

Cheers

Re: New y510p with a wifi problem

Hi all, just thought I'd chime in here. I bought a new Lenovo Y510p back in Oct 2014 and everything worked beautifully (the graphics card is great for games!)... everything except for the wifi. At home, opening websites took way longer than it did on my girlfriend's laptop, and at work, even my old laptop sporting windows XP would load webpages faster than my Y510p.

 

I looked a while for solutions, and it sounded like most people had trouble with the wireless device installed on their machine... in my case the Intel Wireless-N 7260. I went to the driver properties for my wifi device and tried updating the driver, but it said that the driver was up to date. After a bit of browsing on the Intel driver download site, it occurred to me that it was slightly odd that my driver was up to date. My driver was version 16.x while all the most recent drivers were something like 17.x. I downloaded the newest driver version from the Intel download center and... my internet was suddently lightning fast!

 

I guess the moral of this story is that Windows can't be trusted to find the latest available driver for your various devices. Best of luck to people with similar problems!
