Yoga S730 wifi not stable while on battery

2019-04-05, 8:41 AM

Hi all, I bought a Yoga S730 lately and it's been doing good. However, I found that when I unplug it, the wifi is not stable. It will stay connected to my wifi but there isn't Internet until I restart the wifi adapter. But it will happen again after less than 30 mins. If I plugged in, the issue didn't occur so far.

 

I have been researching about that issue and some suggest that I should change the Power Management to uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and also the Wireless Adapter Settings in Power Options to Maximum Performance. But that doesn't help.

 

Is it just me or does anyone has the same issue? Thank you!

My Yoga had simmelar issues with the wifi. Can you tell us if its a realtek adapter? If yes i would recommend replacing it with a Intel Wireles-AC 9260. I did the same thing and my issues were gone.

 

In my opinion realtek makes really **bleep**ty wifi adapters.

The exact model i used is the INTEL Wireless-AC 9260 2230 2x2 AC+BT Gigabit vPro. It should give you higher speeds, better stability and better Bluetooth performance.

Thanks for that. But do you know if I can replace from the Lenovo or I have to do it with 3rd parties?

I am so sorry about that :) . I guess what you were saying was replacing the wifi module to Intel one? I would like to know if you replaced it from offical channel such as from a Lenovo store or  replaced it by yourself? Sorry again for my previous unclear reply.

I just did it myself.

Here is a video opening it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mymKE-sWMJw. Just take it the old one out and put the new one in. The wires are color coded so no worries about messing them up.
