Windows will automatically install a driver. But you should download the appropriate driver from intel..

Just want to say that I got a new Yoga 2 Pro, i7cpu, 2 weeks back, direct from Lenovo. Did not have Dual wifi card installed. I got new card from M-Factors; installed it, & it works perfectly on 5ghz without any new drivers. I hate to update what isn't broken! Have not had any connection probs.

The only driver that sees my wireless AC card as having an ac radio signal AND does not drop my connection is version 16.5.3.6 .....

 

As you can see here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Idea-Windows-based-Tablets-and/Where-is-my-AC-radio-frequency/m-p/1658141#M24710

 

Even with the new AC card, I still had dropouts with all the 17.x drivers. Even worst is that I would never get the ac radio signal.

 

These drivers are just messed up.

 

/me knocks on wood lol....

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

Update: I had 2 internet related problems.
- "Limited Connectivity" which required a reboot. It has been over a
week and I have not had this since I have only used maximum performance
on the wireless adapter settings n the power management. (I did upgrade
to the AC chip but not sure it was necessary.)
- Pages don't load, get "page not found" errors intermittently
throughout the day; these affect everybody on the network, not just me.
I now believe this was caused by running Crashplan cloud backup. Not
sure if this can be resolved with a different setting on the router or
different type of router. Am going to pursue that with Crashplan. This
error doesn't seem as common, but if people get it I would suggest
turning off any cloud backup services you may have running.

(Note: I also have a problem where I get inputs from the keyboard or
touchpad when the lid is closed. I get these in Reno and not in Hawaii
so I believe it is a static problem. They should disable those when the
lid is closed for those living in dry climates.)

This is also yet another fault on the Y2P however I have not found a suitable thread for this fault. The problem is with the touchpad and it can be clearly seen from the icon in the system tray activating (going green) when the lid is shut (external monitor obviously). You can also load the "Mood Pad" from the Synaptecs Pointing Device - Accessories menu to clearly see this fault. If you get this annoying fault (cursor jumping about when the lid is shut) simply turn off the touch pad (shared with the F6 key).

This fault in my opinion is a driver fault - the touchpad is disabled in all the different modes of operation e.g. operating in tablet mode, however they forgot to disable the touchpad when the lid was shut (duh!). I have not succeeded installing the Synaptecs drivers directly and Lenovo is painfully slow when it comes to driver updates.

@mattrice: If you can't send it back, test this program: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/forumtopicprintpage/board-id/IdeaTabWindows/message-id/25013/print-single-message/true/page/1

 

you can disable touchpad/touchscreen in all modes with it.

The beauty about the patch is that it disables the touchpad once the lid is 45 degrees or less. Disabling it for sleep mode. :p
