Noticed this yesterday. Interesting..


That link looks promising because the title of the page says "Realtek RTL8723A" but it's actually still a driver for the Realtek RTL8723AE device (i.e. not compatible with Yoga 13).  So installing it will unfortunatly do nothing for the Yoga 13 WiFi device.  You can see the correct device type identified in the details shown lower in the page and also by looking at the .INF file inside the downloaded directory.

 

So far, it seems that the only compatible + later wireless drivers are those that diecast17 is helpfully providing (signed, 1021.6.118.2013, dated 1/18/2013) or the earlier Dropbox unsigned ones (1021.5.1217.2012, dated 12/17/2012).

Are you sure it wont install? I've not tried but I thought it may install as the difference is connection type. The chip is still the same.

I tried installing. It installs, but it's just a driver for hardware that is not present. The driver is for PCI-E and I believe ours are internal USB type? Someone correct me if I'm wrong on why the drivers will not work on the Yoga 13.

My issues where randomly Disconnects week Connection, if not in the same Room with the Router.

Router is a D-Link Dir-825. Solution was new Driver, Energie Settings of the  Adapter to high Performance.

Yes, Driver AND Energie Settings. Driver only, means stable Connection in view of AP. Energie Settings means stable Connection in entire flat!
