I bought the new Yoga 3 Pro with the Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter and have problems with the WLAN.
I have router Asus RT-AC68U with two networks 2.4 and 5 Mhz.
All other devices has connection to both of them, but Yoga 3 can connect only to 2.4 Mhz and i have max spped connection 144 MB/s.
Is it possible to fix it?
I have tried to change settings on router and yoga but with no success.
Do you have any ideas?
Maybe is bloked in register? (i know is sometimes happed depend of region)

You don't say where you are located so it's going to be hard for anyone to make a specific comment about region issues.
I can say that I have exactly the same configuration. My Y3P connected to my 5GHz network @ 700+ mpbs without changing any settings.
Does the laptop see the 5GHz network?

I have changed yoga 3 two times with same result.
It`s very strange situation, tried another notebook by Acer is ok.
Yoga 3 is very cool but i can`t use it because it isn’t support 5Mhz in Russia it`s big disappointment.
Support in Russian region can`t help me to solve.

It might be that Lenovo supplies different (firmware) versions of the Broadcom WLAN card for several regions.
like they did not supply dua band (5GHz) cards for the Yoga 2 13 and Yoga2Pro.
Or they provide different software/drivers, or a setting in the software ....
Please compare the specific hardware ID's for the 5GHz compatible versions of the Yoga3Pro to yours to see if swapping the card or drivers could be a solution.
Please provide your hardware ID:
Copy this string to a post:
And hope other Yoga3Pro users will do the same,
so we can investigate and solve this.
So please post:
And maybe some settings in the Advanced tab like VHT mode ...
Below is a sample screen shot of my WLAN card (a Intel 7260AC):

you need the Russian version of the card and drivers just like there's a russian version of Intel 6250 WiFi card.
