Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch 3444CUU - Wi-Fi adapter issues

I have a 3444-CUU that I really love. When I first got it I realised the wireless adapter would just randomly stop working. I updated every possible driver and I'm still having the same issues. All I can do is reset the adapter to get it kicking again. I'm not sure if the wifi care is soldered or if it could be removed or replaced but I'm really leaning towards it being a hardware issue.

 

It'll either stop working could turkey, won't detect any wireless networks or it'll stop working and I can still view other wireless networks but I cannot connect to them. Resetting the adapter is the only option. As I'm writing this right now the wireless has gone out again. So I have to reset the adapter for 5-10 more minutes of internet just so that I can post this.

 

Anyone else experiencing these issues?

Re: Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch 3444CUU - Wi-Fi adapter issues

I saw a post a couple threads down about a regular x1 carbon stating that the drivers on the lenovo website are not up to date and to download them straight from intel.

 

Windows 8 - x64 - Intel PROSet drivers

 

I downloaded the file above. I will post my results in the next day or two if I don't experience any problems between now and then. Fingers crossed.

I have this same problem.  The wifi adaptor on my X1 Carbon Touch seems to be very flaky.  I'm constantly having to reset the adaptor.

It looks like Lenovo dropped an updated set of wifi adaptor drivers for the X1 Carbon on 1/29/2013.  I just installed them.  We will see.

Re: Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch 3444CUU - Wi-Fi adapter issues

I too am having this Wifi issue. I upgraded from Windows 7 x64 to Windows 8, which is when the problem seemed to have started. 

 

I've tried the latest Lenovo driver (as of Jan 31st) and still had the issue, and also the driver directly from Intel's site. The driver from Intel's site seemed to fix the problem for a day or 2 but the issue has come back. 

 

As with the others, the network connection is dropped and the only way to fix is to disable and re-enable the wireless on the system. 

 

I've manually install the latest Jan 31st driver to see if that fixes it. Will check back when I've had a few days to test. I'm wondering if the others having this problem performed a Win7 -> Win8 upgrade as well?
