U310 driver update questions

G'day!

 

U310 - I5 - 4Gb - 32Gb SSD - 500Gb HD - upgraded from W7 premium to W8 pro

 

I have three questions.

 

 

1.

I just encountered a new driver for the next item:

WIFI Driver (Intel, CyberTan, Liteon) for Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad U310, U410

 

and I found this update on the URL:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS031444

 

The thing is that from the moment I upgraded to W8 I'm not very satisfied about the WiFi performance and I wonder if this driver update will give the solution.

 

 

2.

I'm asking myself whether all U310's that were upgraded to W8 share the same drivers, or is there a difference of country.

 

In other words, can I download and install this new driver without the risk that it might not work properly?

And can I dowbnload and install ANY new driver for my U310 without any restriction?

 

 

3.

Is there any service notification for this specific U310 by LENOVO when there is a new driver update (e.g. for W8 64 bits)?

I mean, I have to search and search and search for new drivers without being sure if I took the right version ...

 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Grtz,

Jim

Re: U310 driver update questions

Hi

 

Welcome To Lenovo Community

 

We are really very sorry for the issue you are facing

Based on what I read from your post, I am sharing a link of updated drivers

And few steps to enhance Wi-Fi signals

 

Wireless LAN (network controller) device driver

 

 

Open device Manager, Network Adaptors

Right click on Wlan card click on properties

Click Advanced

Click on Transit Power and changed the value to 5. Highest

Roaming Aggressiveness change value to Highest 

Reboot the system

 

 

 

Do give this a try and let us know  

 

 

 

Hope This Helps

Cheers!!!

Re: U310 driver update questions

Thanks, RMattoo,

 

However, I'm in doubt:

When I activate the driver update, I get a warning message that "executing this unkown app could cause damage to my computer".

Can I execute it nonetheless? I was expecting an update without this warning ...
