Replace Realtek WiFi card with Intel card

2014-08-06, 16:21 PM

I have a Yoga 13, and I have started to experience the issue I keep finding all over the internet, the wifi keeps dropping, even though it can see the router, it won't connect, I reboot, i get connected for a few seconds then it drops again, sometimes resetting the wireless adapter helps, but again just for maybe a minute, then gone again.


I have tried all the suggestions about performance settings, latest drivers etc...


So now I would like to replace the realtek card with maybe an intel one, as I no longer have faith in the realtek one.


Does anyone know what one would be compatible with the yoga 13?

Quickest way would be to pop off the back and first check if its a soldered in item.


If it is plug-in, then count the pins on the connector and then go find a matching card version.


I did that on my Acer laptop, but then, they are pretty much always a plug in thing. For compactness, they may be soldered in on the Y13.
