Yoga 900: WiFi cannot re-connect to home router

I have been relatively happy with my Yoga 900, but I have run into an odd situation and would appreciate any help.

Specifically, my device functions well with my home router, but if I move to an area of the house where the WiFi signal is weak, and I get disconnected from the router, I seem to be unable to re-connect to the router when I then move back to an area of the house with a strong signal.

I tried turning off the WiFi and turning it back on, but it still will not connect.

It seems the only way I can get back online is to reboot.

Is there a solution to this?

For what it's worth, I do have the default 18.12.2.3 driver installed (Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8260), and saw a post somewhere suggesting going to the Intel site for their driver.

I am not someone who enjoys tweaking settings, so hopefully there is a simple step I am missing.

Thanks so much to anyone who has time and willingness to offer a suggestion.

Hmm, my unit doesn't have that issue. Try reinstalling the Intel wireless driver: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-900-13isk/downloads/D...
