It isn't fast but these are internet connection speeds we are looking at, not network transfer speeds. If I still had my yoga I'd run some tests, but thankfully I rejected it with Lenovo as being unfit for purpose as a laptop.

Grey colour . There is a thread already on the forums here about peeling paint on yogas.

Re: yoga 13 wifi issues

Ok I work for a retailer that sells the Yoga along with may other Lenovo laptop's and I am wondering if a new wireless card driver is out there why doesn't Lenovo make it available to us? I just checked the display Yoga and it shows the wireless driver from 9/4/2012 version: 1021.2.904.2012

So if there is an updated driver from 12/17/2012 why wouldn't Lenovo give us access to that new driver?

Mod can you have someone look into this for us?

Given the testing I have done, its entirely possible that 95% of the issues could be fixed by an updated driver and associated windows network stack.

if it turns out that the solution is a driver dated Dec 17th, 2012, I'll be both happy that there is a fix... and peeved that I waited so long for Lenovo to get Realtek to send across the correct driver.

Has anyone figured out where to get the updated 12/17/2012 Realtek driver and for those less technical, how to install it?

 

Lenovo's support site for the Realtek Wireless LAN & Bluetooth Driver for Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit) - IdeaPad Yoga 13 Driver (http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS031976) suggests a release date of 10/23/2012, which would imply it is an update to the 09/04/2012 driver installed (but still not the 12/17/2012 driver).

 

I did not see any changes to the driver information or performance after installing this update.

 

Any ideas from those more familiar with driver?

 

I for one would be ecstatic with some of GzyOnline’s reported speeds.  My download speed averages around the 2Mbps level, with infrequent spikes upwards of 20Mbps depending on my location.

I believe the driver on Lenovo's site listed from 10/23/2012 is the same driver as from 9/4/2012

 

Can anyone post the new driver on a file server from 12/17/2012 for us to download?

 

If the computer came with the driver from 12/17/2012 that means Lenovo has the driver.

 

The demo Yoga Laptop at our store was manufactured on 1/7/2013 but it still had the driver from 9/4/2012 version: 1021.2.904.2012

Also Lenovo's site lists the wrong version number for the wireless card, because the version they list is: 1.00.0193 which doesn't matter any other version number we have seen for the wireless card.

I can try to extract the driver from my laptop and post it here, if anyone has any advice on the best way for me to find it/extract it, please do share; also, has anyone tried calling Lenovo and asking them if the updated driver is located in a hidden area on their website?
