I just purchased an Ideapad S415 Touch. The wiFi connection drops often. It still shows that it is connected, but there is no internet pages load, email stops working, etc.
If I hit "disconnect" on the connection, then hit "connect" again, it works great probably for a few more minutes or an hour or whatever.
I went into "properties" and changed the settings on roaming and power management per an article I found on this site. I think this may have helped a bit, but it's still happening.

Do you of another compatible wifi card preferably a wifi/bluetooth combo card that I can purchase to replace this problematic card? I want to get a different model that will work w/o disabling WMM.
Why does Lenovo locks the bios to any wifi card what is not on their whitelist? I need to know the specific card that will work..
