I am having constant issues with this product and the wifi. I am trying to connect to a Cisco N750, at best I can connect but I get no network response. Is there a problem with these routers and realtek? Is realtek more acceptive of Apple routers??
I am seeing full bars.
I've tried the driver swap like other people have suggested.
If all fails, can I return it as defective? I bought it in April and don't want to have to put another usb wireless adapter in order to get wireless signal...

I've tried three routers now.
Verizon Actiontec Gigabit router with N that comes with the FIOS service.
Cisco N750 Smart Router
The last two routers are dual band and have 5GHz. All other phones/tablets/laptops I have in the house connect to 5GHz flawlessly. The Yoga doesn't support 5GHz. The Yoga is not connected to the 2.4GHz regardless of the following...
Realtek driver version
wireless protocol used within 2.4GHz range
Channel used within 2.4GHz range
Only other thing I can try is the Bandwith option from 20_40w to 20w...

Obviously there is a major issue with the Realtek 8723A in these Yoga laptops. I've had numerous issues with minedropping connection until I did the following.
1) Updated to the latest driver
2) Device manager > network adapters > realtek wifi > advanced tab - bandwidth to 20Mhz, selective suspend to disabled, and wifi config value to wifi
