LENOVO YOGA 2 - Wifi "not connected - no connections are available"

2017-03-03, 23:14 PM

Hi Guys,

 

I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop. This is the second time I have had issues with the WiFi dropping out frequently. 

 

The first time was when I first downloaded windows 10 - I downloaded a new driver from the Lenovo website and everything worked perfectly. 

 

The last couple of months it has been playing up again. My phone and any other devices will be connected to the internet however my laptop will repeatedly disconnect from the internet, this happens a ridiculous amount of times everyday - and it's not just my home wifi! Im currently at my university library and it does the same thing. It just drops out randomly and says "not connected - no connects are available" I have to keep restarting my laptop for it to reconnect to the internet (I know that's probably not the best thing to do but it's the only thing that sometimes works). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver software, I've scanned for hardware changes and nothing comes up?? Has anyone got any ideas on anything else I could try? 

 

Thank you all!

I'm having the same issue with the Yoga 710 (from Best Buy).  I followed instructions to install a new driver but it doesn't work.  I am unable to see the network adaptor in the Device Manager like below.  Seems like a common issue with this model exclusive to Best Buy.  I've only had this computer for 3 weeks and this already?!!

Hello Laurenrxo,

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.

(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal

 

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Hi, 

 

Thanks for your reply. I gave this a go and thought it had worked however it still seems to disconnect and won't connect in places where all my other devices are connected! It still comes up saying that there are no wifi connections available.

Holding down the front power button for 30 seconds has worked for me.  :smileyhappy: 

 

Many thanks!
