I bought my z41 ideapad in october. Thus far it has been working okay, until recently, when the wifi adapter started acting up - somehow it turns off or something so that when I go less than 20m from the router, there is either barely any signal, or it says there are no networks to connect to. However when I go through the troubleshooter, it resets the adapter and then finds the connection and connects to it, showing about 3-4 bars of signal. Every 5-10 minutes or so, though, the connection is canceled and it wants me to reconnect, even though automatic connection is enabled for the network.
Sometimes the troubleshooter gives the "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings" error, but the proxy server thing is not even enabled on my laptop.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

Seems like a defective adapter or a driver is needed. Refer to this page to download the WiFi drivers. If that doesn't work, contact Lenovo support. http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Lenovo-Z-Series-laptops/z41-70?linkTra...
