Yoga 510 ISK14 poor wifi performance

Hi,

 

I bought myself a Yoga 510 ISK14 for christmas and I'm quite happy of it.

I've upgraded it to 8Gb of RAM and 500Gb of SSD. But Wifi performance is awful.

 

I can't get it above 6 Mb/s

 

I tried to upgrade drivers, but it seems the problem comes from the chipset.

Do anyone else encounters such a behaviour ?

How could I get the maximum Wifi performance from my Yoga ?

 

Thanks a lot for your answer

Hi oupsmanFR,

1. Could you do a screenshot of your Wi-Fi Status to see the speed and signal strength?

2. Have you tried the WLAN Driver directly from Intel? You could do a custom install and just install the drivers without the PROSet software.

Wi-Fi speed could also be affected by having interference from walls or device using the same frequency (e.g. Microwave Oven)

Speed and signal are great, I'm less than 3 meters from my wifi router.

I think I found where the problem came from : I tuned the roaming aggressiveness from 5-Highest to 1-Lowest and now the wifi is performing way better.

Why would I install a driver from Intel where my Wifi card is made by Qualcomm ?

Hi oupsmanFR,

My bad, as I may have overlooked from the support webpage. Also, set the transmit power to 100% if the option is available.
