Y560 keeps dropping wifi

2010-11-14, 14:41 PM

 

Well the title says it. The wireless keeps dropping and saying limited connectivity

I've bought my ideapad Y560 about three weeks ago.

 

I'm in a dorm so I don't have access to the router to do anything with that but I have an older lenove (N100) and that

one doesn't have the same problem.

 

I click the trouble shoot and every time it says problems with default gateway but it does fix it and connects. But this keeps on happening.

 

Another thing that happens is that while it's fixing the problem a small window on the wifi icon pops that says "My intel  wifi adaptor"  not found, or something like that.

Solved! See the solution

Thanks. I did this and I also wanted to wait a while to see if it had worked.

 

But it still does this (drop the wifi) although I think it's not as frequent as before.

right click my computer > manage > device management > network adapters > find your wireless adapter > double click > on power management tab, make sure "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" unchecked

yigit +1000000 for that little tidbit of information, assuming it works.  my wifi drops at home all the time (once every few days) and a router reset is always required.  if this fixes it i will have to proclaim your awesomeness.

Y560 Wireless problems

2011-02-22, 14:25 PM

I have had my ideapad Y560 for some time now and have absolutely enjoyed it. But in the past few weeks, I have been having some issues. For some reason, unknown to me, the wireless keeps dropping the network. The network is till there and still working fine, the computer says that it is connected with internet access, but I cannot connect to any web site. I tried to disconnect from the network and then reconnect, but the computer then says there are connection issues that when I troubleshoot, it blames the router. This hs happened on two different wireless routers and no one else in the network is being dropped. I usually have to wait about five minutes and then it reconnects as though nothing is wrong, or in extreme cases I have to restart my computer.

 

Any ideas of what may be going on? I could really use the help.

 

Thanks in advance.

I have U460 with this issue.  I will be returning my U460 for a refund today.  I do not think there is a workaround and this is a manufacturing defect.
