Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

I have been using my y2pro I7 for about a week and wifi has been pretty solid. Before I got this PC my other laptop had been dropping wifi continously, and I messed with the router's security settings which made this issue go away.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

Which router do you have? I am willing to replace mine to solve this issue.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

Riverwinn, If you are asking me, I went with a Cisco router. I had a net gear router, and it was a piece of garbage. This has been the best router that I have ever bought.  Mine is a LINKSYS E2500, which I bought a while back ago(a couple of years 1-2 yrs). It has been my experience, that Cisco routers are the easiest to set up BTW.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

Try changing the Windows system Power Management settings from "Balanced" to "Maximum Performance" to see if this helps wifi performance...

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

A Best Buy rep told me the same thing - if strong/solid internet connection is important to me that I should get another computer.  I thought to myself... when is a solid internet connection NOT important?  He recommended Samsung instead and said Lenovo has a lot of WIFI issues and it's inherent to their brand.  Total Lenovo sales support fail.  LOL.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

@ alwagner7 I had a Netgear router that I threw out my window because it kept disconnecting about 30 times a day!

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

I received my Yoga 2 Pro and have no WiFi issues. My environment consists of a Linksys router set at channel 11. Also, change the WiFi power settings to highest setting. In other words, don't have it conserve power.

Hope it helps.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

I was the initiator of this post, and after updating my driver and restarting I have had no problems (except one incident at a cafe, where I had to restart). So it seems to be resolved for me, although I'm hoping to be positive before my 15 days are up.
