WIFI diconnects then can't find any networks until a reboot

I'm having issues with my new Yoga Book, Android version. Every couple of days, it seems to lose wifi connection, then it can't find any networks again until I reboot. Any ideas?

Unfortunately, the last release don't fix the lost of wifi after a standy ... 
You have to switch the wifi if you expect to recover it ... 
Better than a total reboot, but a boring bug ...

BTW, are there anywhere any release notes for the release updates?

Just a few days there was another one but I was not able to find any clue about what was changed or fixed. That's a little disturbing since I would very much like to know the changes _before_ I agree to upgrade.

Cheers

Re: WIFI diconnects then can't find any networks until a reboot

Hello,

 

I have the "same" problems with Windows 10 Pro !

 

And not only WiFi also Cellular conections not stable !?!

 

Why ??? And what is the problem ?

 

Software or Hardware ???

 

Any other the same problems ?

 

Or is the problem not by Lenovo but by network provider,

maybe I don't know it, i live in Germany (BW, O2-Provider)

 

What about other Network-Provider in Germany (D1,D2,...)

Have YOU! some problems with your Cellular or WiFi conections ???

 

PLEASE, check it, THANKS

 

greets

 

JOEL

I'm having this problem on my Android Yoga Book and am on the latest build.

 

Switching off/on wifi doesn't fix the issue - and attempting to reconnect gives authentication problem against the WiFi it was previously connected to. Forgetting and rejoining WiFi doesn't fix the issue either.

 

Only solution is to reboot. 

 

Please fix this bug.

I changed the Yoga Book to connect to my WiFi with a static IP address, no disconnect today.

 

Settings / WLAN

Long press on your WiFi network

Modify Network

IP settings -> Static

Specify IP, Gateway, etc

Re: WIFI diconnects then can't find any networks until a reboot

I'm gonna give this a bump here, cause this is issue is bloody annoying. Curently I have to reboot my yoga book several times a day in order to get wifi back. It was already happening in the beginning when I got it around mid December, but then diminished to every few days... And now it's back...

 

A few facts for analysis:

- Android Version (therefore I suspect a hardware or radio issue as we saw the same thing on windows yoga books reported here)

- I tried turning wifi off on standby, or leaving it always on (settings-> WLAN->Advanced->keep WLAN on during sleep).. no difference

- when it comes back from standby it shows the wifi as on but not connected and can't find any networks... If I turn it off it simply won't turn back on... It'll get stuck on "turning wifi on", which is why I suspect that the driver cant comunicate with the hardware anymore. However could be a drive problem as well, though why does windows have the same problem then?

 

 

I'm getting really really annoyed that Lenovo isnnot acknowledgging this problem on here and providing constant updates about resolution, because the way it is now this product is not fit to work with (which I do). I already took a lot of s**t with my Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro laptop which cost an astounding 1500 dollars and cant even manage 20 google chrome windows before notneven the mouse moves smoothly anymore. Inwas and am intrigued by the Lenovo Yoga Book concept andnInlove using the device, but when it doesnt work or gets crippled as with this wifi issue it's useless.

And Lenovo's non-interaction with us is slowly turning me into an evangelic against them.... and what happens when this product gets s****y reviews on Amazon, or reports of these failures on Engadget and Slashgear? So Lenovo should really commit themselves to solving this issue, cause if they dont I will certainly give mine back and start ranting in public places (along with others I hope)... 

 

So long,

Agorapho

 

P.S. did anyone else notice that the bloody companion app doesnt scale to landscape mode on android? So I'm typing this with the on-screen keyboard when I have a much better one here on the yoga book. This is exactly what I'm talking about Lenovo... Go figure!!!
