Re: Ideapad U410 wifi frequently disconnected from my home wireless connection only!!

2013-04-24, 15:34 PM

I've been having the same issue with my unit purchased in December running Windows 8.  Sometimes a reboot has at least reset the card to allow me to connect.  To fix this, I have:

 

  1. adapter settings and disabled all protocols/services/clients except TCP/IP v4 and Client for Microsoft Networks.
  2. adapter advanced settings and disabled the 802.11n Mode.

 

So far, so good...

Re: Ideapad U410 wifi frequently disconnected from my home wireless connection only!!

I bought U310 last week and the disconnection happened to me about 4-5 times a day if someone else is using internet as well. If someone in my house watches youtube video, I got disconnected saying "limited". same thing happened when someone uses Facetime or Skype. As long as it's something takes a lot of bandwidth, my laptop "yielded" to other devices... how can we fix this issue?

wil there be a solution to this?

 

I am too suffering from the wifi speed drops from walking away from the acess point.

the wifi bars keep jumping from 1-4 when i try to download stuff, id be sitting bside my brother and his toshiba will get a 2.5mb/s downloadpeed where for my lenovo u410 is getting 500kb/s and we are downloading the same file..... (we did this not at the same time)

 

the only way for me to get a full donwlaod speeds and a full 4 wfi bars is for me to to sit right beside my router...

 

i already got my laptop back from reapir a week ago and i did mention to them before i sent it in abut this wifi issue, but after having it now for a week after getting back it looks like they didnt fix the problem or they didnt fix it properly.. so what are my opitons here...

PROMLEM SOLVED...

 

Bought an N router and now I'm connected with a solid 3 to 4 bars, when before it was constantly dropping out (sitting in same place)..... Its a shame as a consumer I've had to buy new external hardware to rectify the problem, when obviously there is an internal issue!!!

Hi all, 

 

I have the same issue with my U410 manufactured 29/09/2012. 

 

As a quick fix  I just bought an external network adapter which has fixed the issue.eg (http://www.argos.ie/static/Product/partNumber/1089549/c_1/1%7Ccategory_root%7COffice%2C+PCs+and+phones%7C14418968/c_2/3%7Ccat_19780850%7CWireless+networking%7C14419015.htm)

 

I did this out of desperation due to the unbelievably poor speeds and connectvity range. 

 

Since lenovo dont seem to care about their customers, I am planning to install a new internal network adapter. Does anyone know if the problem is with the network card or with the antenna before I bother doing this ?

 

A solution from Lenovo would be nice?

 

Thanks.

A possible solution to this problem for those running with windows 8 is to uninstall and delete the wifi card drivers. And then just reboot and let windows install it own drivers for the wifi card. Take note the original drivers must be deleted else it will be use in the reinstallation.

This helped me too

This has been a real problem for a while but...I'm quite sure I have found the solution! In Device Manager/Network Adapters/(your wireless)/Advanced there is a setting called "Roaming Aggressiveness". What this does is try to balance performance and connectivity. On my network (and I'm sure most others) there are several wi-fi possibilities, so when performance drops on the primary network it disconnects and tries to find another network. Of course, the other networks aren't connected so the wi-fi goes belly up. I have set this option to "lowest" so the wireless client will not roam (looking for another network). I haven't lost the connection all day(!) and I haven't noticed any difference in performance. Give it a try!

I purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad U410 with touchscreen.... tried for 2 weeks to get the Wifi connection to work.  After spending 10 hours on and off the phone with support, the help desk gave up and gave me the option to return the machine or have it repaired.  It has been returned !!!!
