I just recieved my Yoga13 a few days ago and am having trouble with wifi connectivity. If i am sitting on top of my router the yoga works well and fast however just one room away with the machine on my lap and i am unable to connect at all. The laptop recognizes my network but is unable to open simple web pages or email.
I was told that it was an issue with the microsoft updates and we restored to factory settings and turned off autmomatic microsoft updates. Unfortunately, I am still having the issue.
If I am unable to travel outside of 10 feet of my router, that is certainly affecting my productivity.
What steps can I take to resolve this?
There are many factors which can affect wireless performance and connectivity. Updating to the latest Lenovo drivers may resolve the problem. A prior Windows update may have installed a 3rd party driver. Some settings such as password protection, power management and router channel selection may also be common causes.
1) Re-install latest Wireless driver
Install updated WIFI & Bluetooth drivers. Version that is or above v1.04.0213 should be used.
