Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

2012-07-26, 13:55 PM
Quick update, i had the usb wifi adapter in one of the USB 3.0 ports. Switched it to a normal port and getting much better results.

I'm a bit confused, so much inconsistency in the tests. Even now, i do get better results, but still only 10mbit..

Anyway, just sharing experiences.

@lamecake: Thanks for sharing your experiences! This behaviour seems really strange, I'm curious what Mark will tell us about the problem. Have you tried the wifi adapter on another laptop?

Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

Tested different browsers, different advanced wifi settings, different router settings, and this is what i find;

In USB 3.0 the adapter performs severly worse than in USB 2.0. I did however manage to get 12mbit/sec with the adapter is USB 3.0, but results are inconsistent.

In USB 2.0 it seems more stable, i was able to get 15-20mbit. However, still not the 25mbit at which my connection works.

In a different laptop, the acer as mentioned, it gets the standard 24.5mbit always. So does the acer internal Wifi card.

Currently i disabled everything on the U410 in the wireless department. (exept the USB wifi adapter) & disabled the BT and Wifi using the FN F7 buttom. This seems to give the best results (placebo effect?)

Bit confused, cant pinpoint the problem, but at least i can use the U410 now icw the Netgear N300 usb adapter.. (eventho it still feels a bit crippled)

Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

I am really disappointed with the u310. After being initially happy working 2m from the wifi router, I took the laptop to the next room in the house and the wifi just dies. We have Virgin 30mb broadband, and we regularly get 32mb/s on the iPad, MacBook, iPhones, and acer netbooks. When working 2m from the router, I can get 12mbs at best, then taking it into the next room (one wall and 5m from the router) I get 0.3 -0.8mbs. This simply isn't good enough to do anything useful. I will have a 70mile round trip to return the laptop, so I am a little hesitant about doing that just yet, but if a fix isn't found quickly, I'm afraid I will have to start looking for a refund and a replacement.

The USB adapter really works well. I get a much stronger signal everywhere.

Hi!

Same problem here, from my point it's looks like antenna issue, because the speed is really depend from distance between U310 and router, during my experiments the speed was varing from 500kb\s to 4MB\s depending on the distance, so if it's really antenna issue i doubt that any drivers or firmware will resolve the issue, will keep it one more week and then refund.

I had been using my computer in the same room as the router so I didn't notice this problem. Now that I've switched rooms I'm experiencing the same issues as everyone else with my U410. Come on Lenovo! Let's get that fix!
