Re: Yoga 13 wifi is extremely poor

2013-01-22, 7:09 AM

Mino65434: I had always the same problem from the beginning. You can try updating the Wifi driver and the signal can be better but issue remains. I hope Lenovo give us a solution asap because I can´t work with this laptop.

 

Regards

Updating the wifi drivers to the latest version didn't help.

Yes calebu2. I wanted say exactly that.

I have just call to Lenovo Technical Support in my country and they don´t know anything regarding this problem and they told me that they don´t have any notification of release a new patch for this.

Anybody have confirmation of a date for the new patch (in case it will exist)  from their local support?

Can we send back to Lenovo this product or change it for a different one?

I´m getting impatient for a solution.

 

Regards!

Just tested something else... Ran the following command from the command line:

 

ping -l 1000 8.8.8.8 -t

 

Then ran remote desktop (my favorite way of testing whether there is a problem with the connection).

 

I had issues with the remote desktop connection, but the ping command never dropped a beat. Does anybody understand enough about network connections to understand what the difference is between a streaming service (e.g. audio, video, remote desktop) and something like the ping command?

 

I think it has to be something to do with a buffer (unless its something to do with the size of the transmissions - packets exceeding the MTU? I'm just throwing technical terms like I actually know anything about them!)

Interesting calebu2.

 

I´m not an expert in networking but what you say could have sense. We have to wait if an expert with more knowledge can dive on this or maybe Lenovo 'some day' provide more information.

 

regards

I have the same problem,  and just to add some info I experimented this problem right out of the box. I had to get really close to the router so that I could Log on for the first time on Windows 8.

 

I'm waiting for a solution, Thanks!

I have the problem even if I´m sitting close to the router (less than 30 cm) and also using Ethernet cable

Any update Lenovo? It's been about a week since a Lenovo Rep gave us an update.

Yes, Lenovo, we really need some advice or help on this issue. The lack of any update is increasingly ominous.

 

I'm forced to use my old, old, old Sony Vaio for any VPN-related work. This is a disgrace; I just paid $1,000 for this Yoga and it's excellent in a dozen different ways, but it's absolutely a mess when it comes to wifi and 'net connections.
