T440 s wifi weak signal and won't connect unless laptop near router

2014-02-03, 4:35 AM
Hello

My wifi works perfectly when I am in the same room as the router. However, when I go to another room, the connection is lost. The computer still shows my network name and 5 bars. But when I try connecting to that network, it is unable to connect. The wifi on all my other laptops works just fine all around the house. I installed the latest driver from Lenovo website.


Could it be a hardware issue?

Try uninstalling the WiFi driver and reinstall, I think its probably some hardware issue.
