I returned my Yoga Pro 2 - AND my X1 Carbon Touch. Until Lenovo FIXES THIS MASSIVE problem, they are useless computers.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

Hummm, I wonder why there are a lot of people having this issue. I haven't had an issue with my Yoga 2 Pro, with the stock 7260N WiFi card or the 7260AC WiFi card that I replaced it with.

You haven't hit the 'right' network conditions that make this computer garbage then. :) - My wife's Yoga works fine on our home network (as well as 22 OTHER WIRELESS DEVICES) but the Yoga Pro 2? OR the X1 Carbon touch? - GARBAGE. Intel and Lenovo need to fix this problem. I'm thinking I may just get a Surface Pro 2 and give that a shot.

I have had no problems at home, work, a couple of airports on a recent trip or the hetel I stayed at.

 

Not everyone is having issues, and I'm not the only one. I hope they fix the issue some are having.

 

Hope you have better results with the Surface Pro or whatever you end up with.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

2014-03-30, 22:41 PM

I bought a Yoga 2 Pro earlier this year. Aside from the wifi issues that this thread is about my Yoga 2 also reboots randomly. Usually when I'm in the middle of typing in Word or something like that. I also have problems with my bluetooth mouse and keyboard, that disconnects frequently and needs to be unpaired and then paired again, as well as the Yoga 2 needing a hard reboot. Why? It seems that the bluetooth itself has failed when this happen.

 

My question: is it even worth trying to fix this? It feels like I should return it - after paying roughly about $2000 for a new notebook you want it to WORK without fuzz. And I still use my old mostly-broken LG Ultrabook because it can at least be trusted. It won't shut down on me causing me to lose everything I did since I last saved my work. It won't disconnect my mouse and keyboard. And it will give me more than 19 MBits per second when I'm within ten feet of my access point.

 

Can this be fixed? It feels like this is more than just a software/driver issue. Or should I try to get my money back?

Even if everything is software related, if there is no fix to the software, you might as well call it hardware failure. I adivce you read the forum and judge for yourself. If you like what you read and you can live with the computer, keep it. Else, you know what you got to do.

Request recovery CDs from Lenovo and re-install just the OS. It will take a bit of work to re-load the drivers, but well worth it.


Or the other option, run TotalUninstall,and remove all the Lenovo related software (e.g., Smart Voice, Transition, Facial Recognition, Smart Connect (Intel), and any other non-Windows third party software.

 

I re-installed only Windows 8.1 Pro and my Yoga now runs smooth.

Or download the driver CD from Lenovo's Chinese website, for free, and avoid paying $100 for that .....

 

However, that won't do anything but waste people’s time. Medeiom, we already established you have not been hit with too much wifi interference. Hence you don't experience the problems many face. Trust me, your advice sounds like a generic support advice at this point. I am not trying to be rude but, telling people to reformat is awful advice. It has always been and will always be. After all, setting up a new computer takes hours/days. My setup (with no images) takes about 1 week.  I have faced this problem since day 1, right out of the box. I have tried everything since then (yes, even a reformat). In the end, this problem affects too many uses to be just a fluke. At this stage, it is a widespread problem even on the new Y2 13" non-pro models (as you can see by the over 5+ users complaining about their WIFI). Unfortunately, they got stuck with the same WIFI cards as Y2P owners. It is sad to see that in spite of this 83 page thread and Lenovo’s Reps documenting this issue, they still sell these cards broken out of the box. Why not change cards or wait till a working driver is out before selling these units?

 

Btw, I get you are trying to help. I am not trying to be an  _____. I just politely disagree with your advice, in spite of your good nature.

Anyone wants to give this driver a go: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS040695

 

It is a 16.10 driver released by lenovo 1 week ago.

 

I am downloading it now.... NO, it does not come from the Y2P driver page. Instead, it comes from the non-pro page.

 

PLEASE WAIT A WEEK BEFORE CLAIMING A FIX..... WE DON'T WANT TO SAY IT IS FIXED, HAVE LENOVO UNFOLLOW THE THREAD AND STILL SUFFER FROM THE ISSUE A FEW DAYS AFTER.

To NINE and Mark_Lenovo:

 

The recently published Intel WIFI driver, found on this page, http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS040695 (although published for the Y2 13" only), does not fix the problem on the Y2P. Please don't republish this driver and call it a fix for the Y2P. I see this is the most recent driver signed. Unfortunately, the problem still persist.
