x230t: WiFi in tablet mode is very unreliable and slow.

2013-06-25, 9:13 AM

When my x230 tablet is in tablet mode, the strength of the wifi signal is greatly decreased and packets get dropped left and right resulting in a very poor experience with anything that uses the connection.

 

I have the 3x3 antenna (multitouch) and Centrino Wireless-N 2200 (2x2 BGN) wireless adapter. My driver version is 15.6.1.6 with a date of 2013-02-21.

Someone correct me if I'm worng but I beleive that:

 

The antenna on this and most laptops is behind the screen. In Tablet mode the antenna rest between the keyboard and the screen so signal strenght is going to be lower that when you are in laptop mode.
