Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

2012-07-20, 18:23 PM

Hey, also seems to me like it could be the an antenna problem. Has anyone tried using an external antenna to amplify the signal ? (don't have one at hand right now, will try to get one tomorrow and do some testing).

 

Other then the wifi problem it is a great machine and it would be a shame if we could not solve the problem.

I was able to reproduce the phenomenom of usb 3-devices slowing down WiFi mentioned earlier in this thread and don't think such a device influences the antenna...

As I have about 7 more days before returning the laptop, no question asked, from where i bought it, i hope lenovo will find a fix for the issue shortly. At least please let us know if theres a hardware or a software issue

During googling for same problems with other notebooks with Atheros AR9285 I found changelog for bios update for Lenovo B570.

Second line:
2 Solved Intel WLAN failed to work only when CD was selected as the first boot order.

 

Wireless network doesn't work if first boot drive is not CD? Are you serious?

After setting CD as first boot device in bios:

But speed drops to 2-3 Mbps after downloading longer than 30 seconds.

Its just about changing the bootsequence, but it does NOT have any effect on the issue. Still the exact same problem (extremely bad download speeds / connection drops).

I can guarantee no solution has been posted here yet. Hopeing for a fix soon, getting pretty annoyed about the responsiveness.

i just don´t understand lenovos philosophy because the lack of information from lenovo to the customers just backfires on lenovo, because people with this problem are insecure and give the ultrabook back to the shop and buy instead an asus or acer ultrabook.
