Lenovo X1 Yoga - Wireless Auto Disconnection

I am trying to disable Wireless Auto Disconnection, but can't find this in the BIOS.

 

Basically I am using the Watchguard SSL VPN, which works fine on ethernet but not over wifi.  Watchgaurd have said the WIFI is auto disconnecting.

Re: Lenovo X1 Yoga - Wireless Auto Disconnection

Welcome to the forums.  You don't mention what version X1 Yoga you have.  I know on my X1 Yoga 3rd gen its in BIOS under "Config" then "Network" then "Wireless Auto Disconnection".

Re: Lenovo X1 Yoga - Wireless Auto Disconnection

Which generation X1 Yoga do you have?  This was a new BIOS setting in the 2nd generation; 1st generation doesn't have it.  The setting is in BIOS Setup -> Config -> Network.  Also note that Windows 10 itself will auto-disconnect from WiFi when ethernet is connected.

Then it's not BIOS that is causing the disconnection.  It's Windows itself.  You'll have to ask Microsoft how to prevent that, because I don't know.  Here is some information about it:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/mobilebroadband/understanding-and-configur...

Re: Lenovo X1 Yoga - Wireless Auto Disconnection

Try this:

1.  Run gpedit.msc

2.  Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Windows Connection Manager

3.  Double-click on "Minimize the number of simultaneous connections..."

4.  Set it to Enabled, then change "Minimize Policy Options" to "0 = Allow simultaneous connections"

5.  Click on OK

I'm afraid you'll have to ask Microsoft for further support.  I can tell you that I followed my instructions on my X1 Yoga 1st gen, and now ethernet and wireless are connected at the same time.
