Just got my replacement Yoga today from Best Buy and the wireless works as it should now. I am so happy because I really like this device!!!! So I guess there are some bad wireless cards out there.

I"m have the same issues as well and they have not been resolved. I'm going to return this labtop as well. What use is this new product if you can not connect to the internet.

Re: yoga 13 wifi issues

2012-11-22, 1:25 AM

Ok so I spoke to soon. When I first got this second Yoga I did a speed test and was getting 25Mbps down. I did the Windows updates and retested and I am now getting 2Mbps down again. I am not sure why this is happening but I can't even watch a YouTube video.

 

If anyone could help that would be great. I am thinking something must be downloading in the background but I'm not sure what.

 

Please help I don't want to have to return my second Yoga.

This is the issue for me as well. Results are inconsistent, but having your hands on the palm rest does seem to interfere with wifi speeds. It would be great if this is just a driver issue that gets sorted out quickly, but I doubt it.

Have had my yoga 13 for a week now and have a wifi issue I cannot resolve.  I often do a remote desktop connection to a work pc. The yoga will only keep a connection for a minute or two and then must reconnect.  Makes working from home impossible.

 

2 other laptops that work fine for this, connected to same router, same time of day, same spot in the house so it is the Yoga with windows 8.  When I do try out speedtest.net it shows good download speeds 16 mbps.

 

Not sure if it is windows 8 or the yoga itself. 

 

Driver version: 1021.2.904.2012

Driver Provider: Realtek Semiconductor Corp

 

Linksys E2000 Router firmware version 1.00.03

I hope a Lenovo Rep can help us with this!!!! I have tried to call for support but they can't help and they instructed me to return the laptop to Best Buy which I have already done once.

Ok more info. I started up the Yoga and ran a speed test right away on speedtest.net and got 25Mbps. I used the Yoga for about 20 minutes and I am now getting under 2Mbps again. I made sure everything was closed except my browser (Internet Explorer). I also used the laptop in all 4 modes and with my palms coving the area below the keyboard and that didn't degrade or improve the signal at all.

 

I hope Lenovo can help us with this. Lenovo I have an IT degree and would be willing to help more by message, phone, or email if needed. I am trying to figure out what would cause this but I am at a loss.

 

I also upgraded the firmware on my Netgear WNDR3700 to the latest firmware (V1.0.16.98NA)

If you haven't yet tried this with your Netgear, see if setting the 2.4Ghz Wireless Mode to "Up to 130 Mbps", not "Up to 300 Mbps", changes anything. Just a wild guess...
