Ditto. No improvement at all. In fact it is worse for me. I never experienced the diconnects before...just weak signals and very slow speed, but now it is disconnecting all the time. And, yes, Ive made the appropriate setup changes.

This computer is worthless to me. I have kept trying, but I'm giving up. Unbelievable. Guess I'll try to call Lenovo and see if I can't get my money back.

Please share what they say about money back, I love the yoga, I have used it away a few times and it's great, light weight very fast and works, but only when you don't need the wifi to work you start to hate the thing... I wish they would just provide another internal card to fix the issue...

Great find!! I'm downloading now... let's hear others report of performance.

Here's a direct link:

I got good results at first. Then went into a spiral of crazy problems... could rarely bring up onscreen keyboard to enter bootup password, often couldn't rotate screen, and the mouse arrow would pulse with a "running" circle every couple seconds: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-IdeaTab-Slate-Tablets/Yoga13-newly-reluctant-to-bring-keyboard-onscreen/td-p/1143837 .

 

It went away when I did a windows restore that same day... it suggested the wifi driver change was the last change which could be backed out. This brought me back to the land of sane behavior. I'm not warning folks away from the change... it may  be some toxic combination of my own settings, bios, etc, but just reporting what happened. I am back to the unofficial wifi drivers from another forum dropbox, which I guess are from January and work pretty good.

It seems the new driver installation package installs some 'amazing' little DOS-like TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident) application as a Service!!! maybe in order to wake up the USB connector every two second or so ??. Among other things, It makes the mousepointer flicker with wait mode.

 

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/18914621/Yoga/runSW.PNG

 

The programme file is called runSW.exe and the affiliate service is RunSwUSB.exe. You can find it by running Task Manager / Processes tab. The files reside in the Windows folder, together with a logfile.

 

If it was not so tragic, I find it somewhat hillarious that Lenovo / Realtek has to invoke such crude tactics / methods.

 

BTW as somebody else mentioned, the new driver improves on Bluetooth. at least now I can stream to my BT speaker without being interrupted by power saving features from the BT mouse.

 

For WiFi it's too early to say, but I think I do see some improvement in stability / transfer rates BUT also new problems with the driver not initialising properly from startup.

 

I am frustrated and would like to know exactly what is the intention of Lenovo by introducing such garbage ---Nine and others from Lenovo!! Please explain!!!

Not only that this stupid proccess SwUSB.exe is running in Background and makes the mousepointer flicker. It is makes a logfile called runSW.log in the Windows Directory:

 

(10:21:52) -> Process0 - Start program 'C:\Windows\SwUSB.exe'OK (10:21:52) -> High Integrity Process (10:21:54) -> >> StartProcess (10:21:54) -> RUN SYSTEM ActiveConsoleSessionId = 0x0001 (10:21:54) -> HIGH_PRIORITY (10:21:54) -> CreateProcessAsSYSTEM bResult: 1

I can get my customer service reference numbers if it helps for people to quote for refunds. It took nearly 3 months of arguing before they gave me a refund. 

 

What they are doing is not right at all in ignoring service issues for existing customers because it would would cost them to much to sort it out. If they hadn't given me a refund I would have taken it to court, I thinks that's what is needed to get them to take action. Or.. Some sort of mass media attention to what they are doing.

Good news:

 

In 9 years and 160 days the wifi problem is fixed

 

At least, the above mentioned log-file will solve that problem.

 

Every 2 seconds 268 characters are added, what also means 256 byte of data.

 

 

256 Byte/2 seconds

 

134 Byte/second

 

133 * 60 * 60 * 24 * 360 = 4167936000 Bytes/year

 

4167936000/1024 = 4070250 KB/year

 

4070250/1024 = 3974.85352 MB/year

 

3974.85352/1024 = 3.88169 GB/year

 

My current free space on ssd is 36.7 GB

 

36.7/3.88169 = 9,45 years = 9 years and 160 days

 

 

And a remark to my special MOD-FRIEND andyP:

 

Can't find anything in the forum guidelines that humor is forbidden as well. But correct me, if i'm wrong!
