wifi connection on tablet mode - Thinkpad X230 Tablet

2013-06-22, 5:39 AM

Hi.

 

Recently, I have noticed that wifi connection in Tablet mode in my Thinkpad X230 Tablet is significantly slower than in laptop mode. Sometimes, it completely disconnected to the network.

 

I tried to test with Speedtest. net and download a file via Internet Download manager. Both show that laptop mode has significantly higher and better speed connection than does laptop mode. 

 

Does anyone have the same experience as me? Is the antena has any problem???

 

Thank you.

 

I

@campanella

 

On the X220t / X230t the wireless antennas are on the backside of the screen, that's probably why te signal is weaker in tablet mode.

 

Try to hold your machine with the antennas upwards.
