Here is the live chat that I did:
 
Please wait while we connect with you with a Lenovo Chat Representative.
You have been connected to ^Nicholas .
^Nicholas :  Thank you for contacting Lenovo Sales Chat. My name is Nicholas and my Rep ID is 2900713385. Happy to help you today.
Andrew:  Is it true that the Yoga now has an Intel wireless card and not a reltek wireless card?
^Nicholas :  Hey Andrew that's right
^Nicholas :  It carries and intel centrino card now
Andrew:  so they changed the wireless cards in the laptop?
^Nicholas :  Yes indeed
Andrew:  So why the change?
^Nicholas :  We had some issues with the realtek cards
Andrew:  Thank you so much!
^Nicholas :  Apparently the signal reception was not strong enough
^Nicholas :  So we decided to change
^Nicholas :  You are welcome Andrew
^Nicholas :  How soon are you looking to purchase one ?

So, is there going to be an option to buy one of these new cards?

 

My will top out at 25Mbps with my 300Mbps router.  My phone gets much higher on the same router.

You want to buy something that should have been there in the first place; a stable functioning wifi card?  These Realcrap wifi cards should be recalled IMO and replaced with Intel.

Well, that would be ideal of course!  What does everyone think would be the best avenue to try to make that happen?

Enough is enough!  I've been dealing with this piece of **bleep** wifi card since purchasing back in november (not to mention the other problems i've dealt with).  I honestly feel like Lenovo, a Chinese company, is treating all of  us like Chinese consumers.  In China, you see, you are treated like garbage by these big corporations.  Once you make a purchase, there is very little support given to you!  It's starting to feel like Lenovo thinks they can get away with this type of behavior all over the world.  Their is obviously a reason the wifi card was replaced!  Like ryanessonyoung said, we need to find a way to make this happen.  They sure as hell are not paying us much attention in this forum!  We've been completely ignored with regard to the Wifi issue.  Turning off the bluetooth is retarded.  Setting it to 20mhz only is also retarded and so is shutting off the power saving mode.  These features are useful to many, including myself.  No more stupid patches!  We need a new wifi card in these laptops.

There is one other reason for the change that I can think of. Intel increased the requirements to be an ultra book. 1 is it must be a touch screen which Yoga already is, and the 2nd is it must have WiDi. I think WiDi can only be done with an intel wireless card. This is just a guess, but probably would have been a better answer from the rep then the Realtek cards didn't work well.

I just spoke with Lenova technical support and they say they have not changed the WiFi hardware from RealTech to Intel.

 

Mine is on order, I'm now wondering if I should cancel.

Maybe check with sales instead of tech support. It wouldn't shock me if tech support didn't know yet if the change just happened.

Also it maybe a help if you wait to see what the Yoga comes with and return it if it doesn't come with the Intel wireless card.
