My tpt2 can connect to a WPA2 network (WPA2-Personal AES). However, it failed to establish an ad hoc network. It also failed to connect to an open wifi network in a hotel and a shopping mall. My macbook had no problem in the above 3 situations. The wifi connection compatibility of tpt2 seems unpredictable. I guess the driver of the tpt2 wifi needs some update.

BTW: I have a ThinkPad Tablet 2 - 2 GB Ram, Win 8

Cannot connect to my office Cisco BGN or AN Access Points, but will connect to my home NetGear Router.

Both office and home run WPA2 - Personal AES

"Receive it today. Looks great out of box, very light weight and good design. Screen resolution is excellent.  The stereo sound is MUCH MUCH BETTER than ipad 4. Both tablet mode and PC mode works smoothly. This is probably the best tablet-PC design, EXCEPT....
 
THE WIFI RECEPTION IS SO POOR. I have to be in the same room with the wireless router to be connected. Ipad4 and other labtopS work well even several room from the router but this tablet 2 shows no connection. I don't know if this is a general issue or design flaw or just my bad luck. Anyone has this problem?

Hello - just received my Thinkpad 2 Tablet (Win8Pro, 2GB, Digitizer Model)... So far the experience has been great and I am happy with the device. However the WifI range seems to be horrible. 

 

My FiOS WiFi Router is located in my basement, house is made of drywall wood. All my PC's/Laptops/WiFi devices have no issues accessing this router throughout the house. However the Thinkpad Tablet 2 completly loses reception on the second floor, ping test's work to a degree but there are consistent time outs, making using the device impossible.

 

Has anyone experience problems with the acutal range of WiFi.

 

Also I did notice the device does not seem to work on WEP only secured networks, you must use a WPA2 secured network (in my experience).

I too have major WiFi issues.

 

I received the tablet yesterday, and have been having a hard time maintaining a wireless connection. Sometime I can get on a network, only to be dropped shortly after, and I can't even connect to my wifi at home (Error message all the time, even though password is correct)

 

I also connect wirelessly to a projector, and that connection last only a few minutes even though I'm in the same room.

 

Any ideas if this is a faulty wifi card, or just bad drivers? I tried updating the drivers for the wireless card, but was told I was laready up to date.

I have the same issue.  I can stand right underneath my Cisco AP at work and only pull 5.5-11Mb speeds.  If I walk 15 feet away the connection will drop.
