This is the second replacement. First one screen brightness fluctuated infrequently. This one wifi is driving me crazy. Although, high config, this device has been nothing but a piece of garbage.. I have looked up and tried all the solutions but nothing has worked out so far

Could you list the solutions you HAVE tried so we're not suggesting things you've already done?

Things that have worked for other users:
Update your router's firmware.
Lower your roaming aggressiveness setting.
Force your router and your computer to stick on the 5GHz band. 2.4Ghz is far too crowded.
Set the power settings for your WiFi card to "maximum performance" for both battery and plugged-in.
Download a WiFi spectrum analyzer tool to see who's on what channel nearby and, if possible, force your router to sit on a channel that's unused.
Finally, test the computer on another network, such at a coffee shop or at work.
If it fails no matter where you are, it's time to dig through your Event Viewer and see if something else is amiss.

Thanks guru for recommended solutions. I am not going to change anything on the router because everyone else’s device and my other devices are working fine. And a new laptop should not require that kind of change in a router. I have tried the other non-router solutions, but still the same.
I installed the analyzer and looked at the event viewer but not sure what it means.

Routers don't always play well with newer Qualcomm chips. That's why firmware updates for routers are issued.. It may also why everything else will work but not your computer. If you find your computer has no issue with WiFi hotspots elsewhere, then it's the router or band congestion. Either one will require changes in your router.

Stream some music. Or, if you can keep an eye on it, stream something safe for work, such as CBS' news channel, CBSN. You should know the minute it drops. How congested is the WiFi at your workplace?

After two replacements, my experience has been nothing but disappointment and frustration. Yoga 730 screen brightness fluctuated noticeably (on both devices) and the wifi would disconnects frequently on the second device. No solution helped. The only good thing about 730 is the built quality but performance-wise not impressive considering such a high config. Unfortunately, I wasted the new year shopping window on this device so now I can’t find anything within my price range with desired specs. The only possible option was again Lenovo but this time the 920. Do you think 920 is better than 730 with respect to performance and reliability? I am not a gamer but also I want something that lasts me at least 5 years without problem. Thanks

I'm having the same problems.
The first month everything was seemingly fine. But now I'm dropping my Wi-Fi occassionally. It was really bad at one point late December but after I checked the forums and found there was a Wi-Fi driver update for RealTek, it's better, but not resolved. Also, it definently depends on routers.
