my problem was fixed when they replaced the laptop. this is the only solution and i can garuntee it is a hardware failure. i changed 3 laptops so far and all have one or more problems.

You mean you changed the laptop or they changed the wifi adapter? If they changed the wifi adapter, which do you have now? Because i have the broadcom 802.11ac and i have the same problems with distance and signal power

Re: lenovo y50-70 - broadcom 802.11ac

after i replaced my laptop (totally new one) the problem got fixed. no more issues what so ever. but the hinge broke 5 times in a span of 1 year. i had to replace it again but this time i demanded a differnet laptop.

 

from my observation ALL y50-70 touch will have a hinge problem and will break eventually. the moment you feel the hinge is weird call support and get it replaced. fixing wont help it will break gain after 2-3 months. my replacement broke in 3 weeks.

 

try to get a thinkpad, those are build like a tank.

Re: broadcom 802.11ac

Can you please tell me the type of the wifi adapter you installed because i have the same wifi connection problems.
Also did you send your laptop for repair in lenovo or in some local store?
