I hadn't even though of that. I have 3 usb wifi adapters that I never use sitting around. DOH! thanks for the tip. Fix this Lenovo! This is riiculous. 23 devices at home connected fine to wifi, this brand new laptop doesn't work. **bleep**

Well in light of all these issues I will probably be returning mine today.  Suggestions on a similar product with a functional Wi-Fi?

From what I read and my personal opinion, this is not a Lenovo issue. Lenovo decided to go with a single-band wifi N card (not sure why), but other PC manufacurers have done the same (Sony, some Dell models). If you purchase a dual-band router and connect to a 2.4GHz channel, you should be fine.

 

I never had issues at home, but my University connection was a bit spotty in some locations and obviously there's nothing I can do about their router situation. However, I took matters in my hands and replaced the single-band N card with a dual-band AC card.. no issues and blazing speeds! 

 

If you head over to Intel's community forum, you will find other PC consumers using different computers, having the same issue. Therefore, this is not entirely a Lenovo issue.

Agreed it is much broader than Lenovo. Prior to my YP2 I returned a Dell for disconnect issues. So far my Lenovo wifi is good, but bluetooth sketchy.

I like that you can upgrade these components, and I really want to keep this.  But what kills me is the face that it refuses to connect to the 2wire.  And that's in the right range.

So I traded it in and switched to a Sony vaio fit 15.  It's way bigger than I needed, but good for a comparison test.  It technically has the exact same Wi-Fi card and an i7 processor with 8gb ram.  This laptop still fails to connect to my 2 wire, but throughout the day has yet to drop a connection on a download. Going through 2 yoga pro 2s in a week for same issue  leads me to believe it's more the Lenovo drivers than w8.

I tried both the drivers on this website and one newer drivers straight from IBM...neither of which worked.

Not Lenovo drivers, it is an Intel driver issue on single-band cards.
