Hello all, Heres a little guide I am making to assist others who have the same issue as me where the WiFi on your Yoga is ubearably slow. For my example I will be using a Yoga 730 "15. I reccomend you follow all these steps before opening your laptop or cracking open the wallet at your nearest Geek Squad and turning your most likely software problem into a "hardware" problem. This method should work for all 700 series laptops and other lenovo products as these setting are purely based off of Vantage and built in windows software.
What you will need:
Method 1: Lenovo Vantage
This method is about updating your BIOS to the latest revision. This can brick your laptop if you don't follow the warning provided by Insyde Bios utility.
Method 2: Device manager
This one can be a tiny bit more complicated, but thankfully I am able to reproduce the steps I took unlike the BIOS update. This time I will provide pics. For this step no dongles, or chargers are required.
At this point these are the only two fixes I have dicovered, I will do my best in order to keep thread updated, but as of now this is all I got. Hopefully this worked for some of you. Please feel free to post your own solutions, critique me, or tell me your results after applying these fixes. Thanks for reading this! -Aedan

I will leave this post up, as it can be very useful to others facing this issue. However on my end the fix was using system restore, I believe it was a VMWare update or the other restore point called DirectNet. Im gonna do research on it, as I have no clue what it is. Thanks for reading my post hopefully it's not as pointless as it was to my own self.
DirectNet is a FTP solution that mounts FTP servers as drives, not the issue. If you don't want to do a restore and have VM Ware uninstall it or switch to an older version.
