Interesting. How much slower was it before?

 

Maybe i'll hold off on the new drivers since I seem to be okay at the moment. Pity lenovo doesnt recognise this as a real issue, but I do wonder if there is a router compatability element to this whole problem too.


I was getting 5Mbps or under, but when I made the switch I got the 25Mbps that I should have been.

Installed the drivers from Diecast (thanks again!) and things seem solid so far.

 

One thing I did notice which I thought interesting --- on the old drivers I was only connecting at 802.11g.   After the driver update, I immediately connected at 802.11n (from the same spot on the couch).

 

Thought it interesting among the discussion around changing the wireless speed on the router side.  (which mine didn't allow for explicitly, though it did allow me to turn off different wireless options)

I have DIR-655 near Yoga13  (0.5m) But Yoga WiFi connection Status say that I have only Speed=135mbs

Why it's 135mbs and not 300mbs  ? What happened ? only 0.5m near Yoga13? and also dir-655 has 3 additional +7db antenes. Why so slow connection on N standart?


Check your router settings.  The speed of your Wireless N network is dependent upon both the client and router settings.  See: #11 in: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-basics/31083-smallnetbuilders-wireless-faq-the-essentials

 

For example, on my Netgear router I set it to "Up to 130 Mbps" as this made my Yoga wireless perform the best.  Doing so makes the INSSIder client (http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/) report a max speed of "130 mbps".  But if I change the Netgear settings to "Up to 300 Mbps", then INSSider reports a max speed of "300 mbps".

 

The Netgear router admin help says:

 

Select the desired wireless mode. The options are:

  • Up to 54 Mbps - Legacy Mode with maximum speed of up to 54 Mbps for b/g networks.
  • Up to 130 Mbps - Neighbor Friendly Mode, with a speed up to 130 Mbps in presence of neighboring wireless networks.
  • Up to 300 Mbps - Performance Mode - Maximum Wireless-N speed up to 300 Mbps.

My issues seemed pretty pedestrian. Slow connectivity, random drop outs, timing out.

Don't know that those have been resolved yet (too soon to tell) but I'll keep an eye out. May also set up an alternate 802.11g access point since going N only on this one may also help.
