Re: Yoga 2 Pro WiFi Replacement Cards????

2014-08-07, 22:09 PM

Recently installed the 7260AC card in my Yoga 2 Pro.  Works great @ 2.4GHz.  That means ~50MB/s download.  Switching to 5 GHz yields slightly higher (maybe 55MB/s)....for a little while, then the connection drops and resets.  Again and again and again.  Why?

 

Compared to another Dell laptop (Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205) in the same house, at the same physical location, gets steady 50MB/s at 2.4GHz and 95-100MB/s @ 5GHz.

 

I have installed the 17.0.5.8 driver and am frustrated.  What am I doing wrong?  Should I consider a different card?

???  What is not compatible with Lenovo laptop?

 

My Yoga 2 Pro came with a factory-installed Intel 7260AC modem.

indest - Looks like we have identical Yoga 2 Pro hardware.  What driver are you using with the WiFi card?

16.5.3 has been the best driver thus far.  Version 16.5.3 has only dropped connection 2x in the last 2 months.

 

I installed version 17.0.1.5 today. So far, it has passed speed test, ac broadcasting and minor stress tests. I'll report back on its stability in about 2 weeks. Within the next 2 weeks, I will make it undergo severe stress test (beyond that of the avg user).

Dont understand how my post could enden here its a reply to a nother,  but yes you have the one for IBM/Lenovo as ther is different compatibla wifi on this cards, Dell, HP, IBM, NORMAL, version of this cards. The NORMAL its the one thats nomald are sold in retail stores a should work in most of the laptops but NOT in IBM/LENOVO ones. I have buy two of them my self and they are working i TOSHIBA laptops. AS about driver 17.1.1406.01 is the latest.

 

Could you also write down the SPS and TA nymber of your wifi card, that would be very greateful for others to know thats is the compatible one.
