Y560 802.11n issues

2011-08-16, 4:38 AM

I have a ideapad y560. My connection drops randomly and I don't utilize my 802.11n option on my router. It is not the router (brand spankin new, high end gaming router to which my girl's laptop connects at 130 Mbps+). It's also not the router because the previous one I had (a NETGEAR one) had the same issues where everyone else's laptop (girlfriend, roommate) would connect (with .11n) and I can't.

 

I am a highly dissatisfied customer, with lenovo as a company. I am also an engineering student, and I can't tell you how much time I've spent (wasted) researching this problem on the internet and on this forum with no results.

 

I've let a useful lenovo person remote access my computer, she uninstalled and reinstalled just about everything short of the OS and still the problems remain.

 

My warranty runs out in like 2 weeks. I honestly don't know what I could get out of this but it's 1230am, I've been in this hard chair for 2 hours (just tonight) and I'm delirious so I'm hoping I just missed the fix.

I have read this "solution." It is not a solution. It does not work. I played with the options on my router, which is not the problem because two other devices connect via N, as I said in my first post. I changed the settings to 20MHz only and a host of other options from other posts I've seen, and still no connection, no option even, for N mode under the wireless mode drop down in the configure device portion of the adapter properties.

 

First thing I did before wasting everyone else's time was search for "802.11n" and read everything that had something about connectivity issues and dropping connectivity in the title. I did the research, and I'm pretty sure the link you posted was at least the second thing I read, if not the first.

 

Anything else?

Oh I guess I forgot to post that diagnostic step... when the lenovo person took over my pc, we also went to lenovo's website, downloaded all the drivers/firmware for my serial number, uninstalled then reinstalled EVERYTHING.

 

I do not know what this readycomm software is... searched in the start menu and all over the computer, nothing gives. where can I get it?

also I forgot to post that my teredo pseudo-tunneling adapter "cannot start - code 10." I don't know if this would have anything to do with the problem but I'm throwing it in there.

Start, all programs, Lenovo, listed under Lenovo should be Readycom. Open it, it's a wireless network connection utility. Try to connect using that.

try to use non-secure connections for a while and check if the issue persists.
