Lenovo Y50-70 Wi-Fi consistently dropping

2016-01-05, 20:51 PM

I bought Lenovo Y50 and since I bought it, it keeps dropping wifi when I play multiplayer mode game. It does to all of games I have.

I tried changing power saving option and the one you have to go into device manger setting and re-installing software and remove it and install again.

I tried everything. The internet connection is fine when I have my Ethernet cable plugged in while I play game. But I do not want to. Why would I want to plug ethernet cable on beast computer.

So any suggestion is welcomed, please help!

Solved! See the solution

First thing is to check your router and its settings.

Mode it supports or which 11x protocol EG b g or n

Mode you are connection at, and if its 11n. How old is the router? Is there a firmware update for it? Many older router are not running the updated specification for 11n and likely the problem.

 

You can disable 11n in the router allow 11g for example and the notebook will connect to it. You won't have a dropping problem I am sure unless you have some timeout as can be the case with DSL services.

Try updating the driver for the network card.

 

EDIT: I noticed you uninstalled and reinstalled, so that should upgraded the driver. Sorry. You can try opening te bottom of the laptop and reseating the network card chip. It is pretty simple as it is placed almost dead center of the laptops motherboard, but to the leftish side maybe.

Hi ImUsername,

 

Just my input, hope this will useful.

 

Set power plan options to High Performance

 • Win + X > Power options > High Performance

 

If you wanna keep the plan that you're using (Power Saver, Balanced, etc)

 • Win + X > Power option that you're using > Change plan settings > Change advanced power settings  > Wireless Adapter Settings > Power Saving Mode  > Set both Plugged In and On Battery to Maximum Performance

 

Go to device manager > Right click on your Intel 7260 Adapter > Go to Advanced Tab > Look for Roaming Aggressiveness and Transmit Power > Set it to 5 : Highest.

 

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Lenovo Y50-70 Wi-Fi consistently dropping

I am having the exact same issues, I cant even connect to a game server? I have a Realtek RTL8723BE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC card. It worked fine 5 days ago and now suddenly I cannot connect to single server. I get ping spikes of 300-500+. Everything is set to high performance, all drivers are up to date. Any ideas? This is extremely frustrating >:(

 

Thank you.

Try downgrading the driver to a lower version, or use the driver for a lower version OS. Usually works for me.
