Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

2013-12-15, 13:38 PM

Hey guys,

 

My YP2 just did one of those automatic windows update lastnight and the wifi seems to connect much faster.  I honestly don't know what it updated, but just know that my computer told me to "press here" for the auto windows update which I did and it rebooted, etc.

 

Usually, when i power up the YP2, it would take about 1minute for it to detect wifi signal and then connect.  sometimes would connect limited, etc, like what most are experiencing here.

 

But after that update, the wifi would connect within 10seconds.  Now initially it would connect limited, but after about 20 more secs, it could be connected solid.

 

this morning I power up and it connected within 5 to 10 secs, solid. 

 

keeping my fingers crossed.

According to this Intel Technote it`s fixed:

http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/CS-034535.htm

 

I haven't read all the pages. If someone already posted this I appologize.

I'll try this driver update right now.

Well, I spoke too soon.  after the system update, it connects quickly, but connects to limited mostly, and when it's solid, I'll get some frequent drops to limited.  worse than before.  Dammit!

Open Network and COnnection centre Click on change adapter settings Click on configure Click on advanced Click on HT mode and select disable Click on OK (or apply) Best of luck -- mine's been rock solid since the change -- just limited to 54Mbps
