Could be an issue with certain routers. Mine is rock solid. Of all my 5 tablets and laptops this one is near the best signal wise


I dont believe so because it happens with my home router and when I am on campus using their wifi.

gazenhokenz,

 

If your friend's Yoga 2 pro has no wifi issues, can you compare settings?  Can you try your system with his access point or have him try to connect on your network?

 

Have you tried your system in other locations for that matter?   To Bergman's suggestion, could we get everyone to share what model router you are using?  Knowing which are working fine and which may be having some kind of compatibility issue might be potentially helpful.   Also knowing what kind of security protocol is being used might be good too.

 

With the Yoga 13, there were a number of setting tweaks that came out in the forum discussion.

 

See this KB article and look at the setting suggestions that have to do with channel selection on your router, and sharing settings.

Also, if you go in through device manager on the Windows desktop, and you find the wifi card, right click, select properties and see if there is a power tab.  If so, on that tab, see if there is a box that allows windows to manage power to the device.   If so, try unchecking that option.

 

 

Mark

This is clearly a router problem, we saw this when the first iPads came out.

I spoke too soon. I had updated my driver for the wifi and that seemed to work great for a few days. No problems dropping out.

 

Now it's dropping out again. It does it at home, at school, and now at the cafe. So even if this is an issue with my home router, there isn't much I can do to change the University's system!

 

So I will try the power setting thing next, and report back.

 

I really don't want to return my baby, now that I'm bonded to her!

I too have been wondering if it's a router or settings issue. I live in an L-shaped, ranch style brick house. My wifi router is at the other end of the house, meaning I use wifi no issues through multiple walls, including two brick walls. The only time I've had wifi issues thus far was at a local Big Boy where I have to reset their router on my every visit anyways. iPad and firends' devices also have issues at that restaurant, though a router reboot sorts it.

choosing 'autoconnect' to your network may help

Unless I am right on top of my netgear router i consistently get dropped out from WIFI.  Frutrating when you are trying to watch tutorial vidoes for work - no other labtop is having that problem in our house.  We have 2.4 and 5ghtz available on our router.  I wish lonovo would just admit their is a wifi problem because they went cheap on that end of the computer...

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.
