T460p poor 5ghz wifi after driver upgrade

2018-05-28, 9:06 AM

On my t460p, the wifi was very stable connecting to all networks whether 2.4 or 5ghz. After the latest Lenovo update to driver 20.30 via the system update, 5ghz networks now take ages to connect and sometimes fail to connect. This is on 2 routers used all the time and previously were very stable. I tried installing the latest intel drivers, 20.50 and they also had this issue. The routers are a BT hub and an Archer D2 so it is safe to say the issue is with the laptop not the router.


How can I report this as a bug to lenovo ? Also, I would like to now install the previous drivers but I cannot find them on the lenovo website, does someone know how I can find them ? (I cannot just do windows rollback driver since I have installed the intel ones)

It is known issue with Intel Wireless drivers that older ones worked much better.

If possible try to use latest one from Intel and see if it helps (in case you have Intel 8260 adapter):
