Like I said in the post.... users will have their X1 Carbon machine locked when they try to use the wireless here in the office. No blue screen no nothing just complete freeze and I would have to hard shutdown. Here is the scenario I have gathered:
Laptop on battery
Wireless signal drops to almost one bar right before it will lock up and freeze.
I got the driver version at 184.108.40.206 and the computer will not lock and freeze but one user has gotten a blue screen twice.
If I turn the wireless radio off then the computer will not lock up. I haven't tried to update to the latest driver version of 16.1.1.
Please let me know if there is anything you would like for me to try.

I just used my x1 carbon for two weeks. The x1 carbon often dropped from the internet( a yellow exclamatory mark on the wifi icon) I have to restart the computer to reconnect the wifi. I already updated the latest wireless drive.

Have you checked the power settings for the wifi connection in the power manager?
Try putting all of your power setting on the max setting and see if the connection drop at all
Where is the source of your wifi signal placed?
Is it in a separate room or is it centrally located?
Interference plays a key role in fix connectivity
You want to make sure your reception is clear as possible
Are you using a private or public network?
Wifi connection issues occur for various reasons
These question will get us closer to pinpointing a solution

I have the same exact problem. From what I have Googled, many others have the same issue as well and Lenovo does not have a fix. Very frustrating dealing with level 1 tech troubleshooting. I am a reseller of Lenovo products, have about 6 WAPs that work that support insists must be the issue. Give me a break.
We need a fix. This is either a BIOS or driver issue or crappy wifi card.

Are your systems using Intel Centrino?
Have you updated to the latest BIOS, drivers or installed the PROSet Wireless software?
A lot of people have been having success when they start using the PROSet Wireless.

I have an X1 Carbon with a Windows 7 x64 custom corporate image and I have wireless dropping out that only a reboot appears to resolve. It usually takes a few hours to happen.

My Lenovo X1 Carbon shows as "Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205".
It came with version 15.1.x.x I think but can't be sure.
Lenovo's latest is "15.02.0000.1258". This did not fix the problem. I don't remember if this showed up as something like 220.127.116.11
I now have 18.104.22.168 direct from Intel using their driver check utility. I downloaded on Saturday. So far it's not dropped out / stalled on me so fingers crossed.
