Y560 wifi issue

2011-01-05, 10:43 AM

So I've gone through these forums and also other websites, but I'm still getting pretty bad wifi connection with my new Y560. If I connect via router, I have no issues so I know it's something with this laptop (my other laptops function perfectly). I also brought the laptop to other locations to see if it was a specific issue with my router, but no luck.

 

Websites randomly hang, connection gets dropped, and sometimes it won't even locate my network.

 

Things I've tried so far: 

- Uninstalled readycomm

- Disabled ipv6

- Unchecked the boxes for the network adapter regarding saving power

 

My notebook is only 2 days old, bios 59. This is the only issue I've been having so far and technical support was not helpful at all. I love this laptop but browsing over wifi is something I do on a constant basis (college student), so fixing it would be ideal.

I don't think I have the Atheros chipset but rather the Intel one. When I reinstall that, do I use the version on the Lenovo website?
