Re: Poor WiFi performance of Yoga 2 11?

2014-08-08, 1:18 AM

http://www.mfactors.com/7260hmw-intel-dual-band-wireless-ac-7260-802-11ac-dual-band-2x2-wi-fi-bluetooth-4-0/

 

Would this work?  Is it supported by the system? Would it fix my problem?

 

Manual says its a BCM943142HM 1x1BGN+BT4.0 HMC  Is HMC and HMW the same form factor.?  Just really want to find a way to get this to work if possible.

 

THANKS!!

Yoga 2 11's BIOS probably blacklisted the 7260AC unlike the Y2Pro where 7260AC is actually on the list of approved cards.

Lenovo Y470: i7-2670QM | 8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM | Nvidia GeForce GT 550M | 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate HDD | ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Network Adapter | Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

this was the solution for me. replaced the one I had, made by other manucturer, with intel 7260HMW BN, comes with bluetooth support. no more signal drops a distance has increased significantly.

 

my wife is happy again.
