WiFi tediosly slow, Ideapad 710S

2017-03-31, 20:18 PM

Hi and hello there,

 

 

I just bought a new Ideapad 710S and I absolutely love it. Great design and great performance, except for one thing: WiFi speed. I checked it simultaneously with my phone and old laptop and they both have around 40mb/sec. The laptop manages to get around 15mb/sec.

 

Now I already updated the drivers (Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165) and windows 10 update, however, this had no effect. Also, when I tried downloading various items it's about half the speed of my old laptop (also running Windows 10).

 

 

Any help would be sincerely welcome!!

 

Thanks in advance and all the best,

 

 

Jan

The user in the following thread had a similar problem with his 310-15IBY:

In his case the problem was the wi-fi router to which he was trying to connect; a new router solved the problem.  Your problem might be different, but it could be worthwhile trying other wi-fi routers (friends, neighbours) to see what speed you get using different router hardware.

Nope, this was certainly not the problem, but I did found out however. I am happy to share it. I was checking the energy management schedule and had a quick peek at advanced settings. I double checked the settings for the adapter of wireless settings and then put the performance of maximum instead of energy saving. That sincerely did the trick!

 

I also found out that amending the settings for the processor gave me much better sound (instead of stutter while playing MP3's)...

 

Hope this helped!

Having same issue with 2.4 GHz network. On 5Ghz it works great - but it really looses connections on 2.4 GHz network all the time. All the others use the same network and it works fine for them.  They have 20Mb download speed, I have 3Mb - if I do not looose the connection. Have read many complaints about the Intel 3165 card. This is NOT ok. HELP!

Have smiliar problem, a IdeaPad 320s with AC-3165, really bad performance on 2.4 Ghz, have tried all the above.  Other devices works fine. on 5Ghz the performance is great.
