Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

Hi all,

 

Thank you for your post. I understand how frustrating Wifi issues can be and I hope to be of assistance. After reading through your threads Its really hard to pin point the cause as many factors to look into. It can be either Software or Hardware related, but based on your thread seeing that some of you have tried the suggestion on the web it s leading me to suspect that it could be hardware. May I know Which type of Wfif card you were installed with? Is it Atheros or Intel?

 

In the mean time there is a Driver update for the Atheros WiFi card that was last Modified on the 6th July. Could you give that a try and let me know fo the changes. You can download the drivers from the link below.

Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

Hi,

 

the link provided in the previous post is unavailable for me.

I don't know if this is the right place to post my problem too, but based on the similarities of the two notebooks I did not wanted to open a new thread.

So in my IdeaPad U410 I have a Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter, and I have the latest drivers for it. Sometimes the signal strength is fluctuating or the latency gets really big, or just the download speed is very low (maybe 1mbit/sec).

If necessary I can provide more detailed information.

 

Regards,

R.

Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

hi packrat,

 

The driver that i have posted should work for the U310 and the U410, with those running the Atheros Wireless. May i  the issues with the wireless did it happen a while after u bought the machine or not long when you used the machine?

Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

Hi,

 

the problem came up just after I bought the machine. And after I upgraded the driver to, 10.0.0.45 the problem still remained.

Unfortunately I could not open the link you provided because it displays a page containing:

Could not locate the requested document.

Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

Hi, the problem is still persisting. And the wifi card my u310 came with is the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200BGN................

 

Needless to say, this issue is proving extremely frustrating.........

Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

 

All,

 

There may be some intermittent issues with download capability on consumersupport.lenovo.com   

 

We are in progress of migrating all the idea content to support.lenovo.com and this work should be complete in the near future.  Apologies for any difficulties encountered.

 

Please try this link

 

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_show_6007.

 

It has worked on my browser just now.   We can check on any issue with the intel card. (Nine is looking into this.)

 

EDIT - updated download links to reflect the new support.lenovo.com site.

Here is the Link to U310 - select wireless lan to see just the wifi drivers.  Select the drivers based on which Wifi card your system has - Intel, Atheros or Broadcom.

Re: My new u310 gives really low speeds on wifi

Yes, I was aware the drivers you linked were for the Atheros wifi card.

Just to clarify it is my new u310 ULTRABOOK that is having these extremely slow internet speed issues.

I am also pretty sure that practically all models of the u310, including the u410 and the non-ultrabook versions of the u310 and u410, are using the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200BGN wifi card.........

Again please keep me updated with any solutions, as this problem is remaining as such for way too long.

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
