Install these driver (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28627/Intel-Wireless-Bluetooth-for-Windows-10?v=t) and install the 9260 card. It works perfectly and you'll have the latest version of Bluetooth. The card itself can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079QH5KW1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Here is the memory that I installed: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820236292
I'm a huge fan of Corsair products and the price was excellent for this stick. Again, it works seamlessly.

Did any of you guys expirence any wifi disconnections with the wifi card that came with the machine? I recently bought a Yoga 730-15IKB and its giving me a lot of hell with wifi. It keeps disconnecting from. Any suggestions to solve this problem?

I had no problems with the same machine (730-15IKB) with disconnecting. I simply wanted to upgrade the WiFi card in order to get Bluetooth 5.0. Since this maching has to last me for a good long time, I simply wanted to "future-proof" it to the extent possible.

That was the issue I had if I went more than 3 feet from the router it would disconnect. From what I read its the Real Tek wifi card they used. That's why I was wondering about replacing it (and thank you scooter for your previous answers to my questions!) I'm planning on ordering it soon, but just an fyi they upped the price to $19 on Amazon.. In the meantime I bought an ASUS USB-AC53 Nano wifi adapter (it was compatible with Win 10). I downloaded the driver off the website and installed it, then I was able to just plug it in and connect, I just did it yesterday, but I haven't had any issues yet, I'm around 30 feet away in another room from the router with a big stone covered fireplace right in between.

So..last night I was having some issues with it dropping the signal again.. I'm glad you brought up the router... I looked into my model (DPC3939 comcast) and it turns out its been retired by Cisco.. I guess I'll be going to the xfinity store lol. Hopefully, a newer one will fix the problem. I will let you know what happens.

To everyone having problems with WiFi disconnecting. Do you have Bluetooth turned on? I noticed on my 730-15IKB that turning on Bluetooth practically kills Wifi. What's interesting is that it seems to be a relatively common problem with some Realtek cards and the fix usually suggested is installing an Intel 8265 card. However my laptop already came with the Intel card. I'm going to try to contact support and if they can't fix it I'll just try to get an Intel 9260 and see if that fixes it. I'm about to buy an Active Pen 2 and it would suck to have WiFi not work when I use it.
