Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

2014-04-04, 17:06 PM

Just installed the new drivers.  So far (10 minutes) no drops.  I DO get 20MB down on speedtest.NET, where in the past the absolute most I've ever been able to get was 15MB down, so it's at least promising.

I can't get a 300mbit connection anymore with the new driver. The max I'm getting is 144mbit. Channel width is on auto.

New 17.0.0.34 drivers do not work for me, always lost of connection after a while (30min) and then connection becomes "restricted".

After some testing I went back to the 16.10.0.5.

 

The new one is worse for me in every regard ( throughput and stability). I can't recommend the new driver, but everyone should test it for themselves.

I went into device manager and kept switching back and forth between drivers (via update, let me choose the driver) and the new driver cuts my speed in 1/2 every time.

 

Ever since 16.5, the drivers keep making the connection slower and slower. Even then, they don't manage to fix the issue (just improve the issue).

Heres what worked for me:

 

Download and install the 16.5.3 Kona Intel Wireless Driver (which contains the Intel PROSet Wireless Software so make sure to install that too) from the Lenovo Support site: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS037481

 

This update reverts the driver back to an earlier version (16.0.0 or something like that), so go to Windows Update and click Check for Updates and install the Intel Wireless-N 7260 Update which will bring the driver version back to 16.5.3.

 

Good luck!

Seriously contemplating making these posts for 24 hours to show how often I get disconnected on a given day. Spending 10+ min to get back online sucks. Usually I am batch processing data for my research project and cannot reboot.

 

Lenovo, your fix is way overdo, please throw me a bone, even a beta bone.

Hi indest,

 

I read users with drop connections on their Y2P, upgraded their routers to the opensource dd-wrt and have resolved drop connections.

 

You can always backup your router settings before upgrading to dd-wrt. I think this will work for you.
