Poor wireless connection Yoga 710 14ISK

Question: Poor wireless connection Yoga 710 14ISK

Hey all, Hope someone can help me out with this. I am having a lot of troube with internet connection in my laptop. It usually starts fine when I turn on the computer, but after ~30 min it really slows down and often it looses the wi-fi signal. I have good connection on my phone all the time and other computers using the same network do just fine, so it really looks like a problem with the wi-fi adapter. I've already done everything this link recommends: https://support.lenovo.com/br/pt/documents/ht070623 I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver several times. Also, I reset my pc in case some I'd gotten some virus, but no luck. I've an Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 and the driver version is 18.40.0.9 that seems to be the last version of the driver that I could find at Lenovo website. Help?Thanks

When I am using my bluetooth connection on my Yoga 3 Pro and typing at the same time the connection drops off constantly. I can only assume that the bluetooth antenna is right below my hands. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? I would really prefer to not have another USB device sticking out of the tablet while I am using it. I have already had to add a WiFi USB device to extend the poor range of the WiFi card that came from the factory. It really defeats the purpose of this device being so portable. This seems like a pretty big design flaw. Thanks!

Answer:Poor Bluetooth Connection Yoga 3 Pro

I have the same problem.I found that if I rest my hand on the right of the touchpad then the bluetooth connection to the speakers breaks.

My Yoga 2 11 is getting worse wifi speeds than my GS3 smartphone, I have already tried updating the drivers. I have installed all the drivers that came in the sub-partition of my laptop and also went to the lenovo website and got the latest WLAN and LAN drivers. At home my wired speed is 6Mbps while when the laptop is right next to my router and at full bars at best it gives me 1Mbps internet connection. One or two bars less and I get dropped to .5Mbps speeds. Please advise. 

Answer:Yoga 2 11 Poor Wifi connection and slow.

I'm having the same issues as well. Brand-new Yoga 2 Intel Core i5. My internet speed is currently at a 6Mbps as well, normally it's 50. Please help!

Hi I recently bought an Ideapad Y700-14isk. The model is 80NU000WUS. I am having issues with the battery. Since the first day the battery life has been very poor. While using windows 10 power saving settings, and also graphics options set to power save, I am only able to get 1.5-2 hours when running minimal programs and no games. I just use chrome to study but the battery life is incredibly poor. Has anyone else been having issues with the 14" version? I was wondering if the battery is upgradeable to a higher capacity, and where I could possibly buy one from. I understand its a gaming laptop but 2 hours on a full charge while studying power point slides in the chrome browser is just too poor for me. Please let me know if any of you have this issue, and if there is a way to buy a higher capacity battery. Any input helps. Thanks in advance.  I spoke to tech support twice and both times they seemed very clueless. Not helpful at all.

Two years ago I bought a Linksys router and WirelessG card for my HP Laptop with XP Pro. The wireless connection was never great. Takes a few minutes to find a connection, loses the connection fairly frequently. Not being experienced with wireless, I just assumed that because it was wireless, it was like a cell phone connection that just goes in and out.
Recently someone was over with their Sony laptop with XP. I took the linksys card out of the HP and put it in the Sony and configured it. The Sony laptop has an internet connection as soon as it boots up and RARELY loses its connection. Even now as Im on the 4th floor of my home and the router is in the basement.
Any explanations?
 

Answer:Poor Wireless connection

Have you tried making sure all your drivers are up to date, and you are running the latest service packs? Also, how far away from the wireless hopspot are you? Maybe the card in the Vaio has a slightly better range.

Do you have the latest wireless driver? If it is an integrated adapter the driver should be from the PC manufacturer's web site.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.

I also use a macbook and this is working just fine, although I dont put it to the test quite as much as the pc. any ideas for a solid wireless connection... thanks nai
 

Answer:still,poor wireless connection

"any ideas for a solid wireless connection"

Yes, a good router with up to date firmware, good wireless adapter with up to date driver, use a wireless utility that works well with the adapter and make sure no other wireless utility is running, and avoid wireless interference.

Hi all. I'm using a Range Plus Wireless PCI Adapter for my wireless Internet connection. Model no. WMP110

Linksys RangePlus Wireless PCI Adapter WMP110 - network adapter - Compare prices, reviews, user opinions - Shopper.com

It worked fantastic when I first got it. But now my connection is lower and I lagg horribly.

I'm searching for technical support right now since my box says award winning tech support 24 hours a day 7 days a week are available to assist, on the box, so I'm searching for that support right now from I guess Linksys.com.

Are there virus/spyware/whatever the reduce signal strength on your wireless connection to your router?

While I wait and persist for help through all that, I figure I will post here to see if anyone is kind enuogh to help me out since maybe they have dealt with the same or a similiar issue.

EDIT: well that customor service thing was a bust. They'll help me register, buy a warranty, and do some other things...but not help me lol. However, there are some FAQ like things I'm going to continue reading through.

I don't think it is a distance problem because it was good before...

Answer:Poor wireless internet connection.

In my experience, most of my wireless internet problems are caused by external sources such as a cordless phone (many cordless phones run on 2.4ghz, which is the same as wifi), microwave ovens also cause issues. Once i even found out that the huge coil of coaxial cable that i had sitting close to my router was causing issues, because it had a power injector on it and was creating an electromagnetic field. If you are seeing a drop in signal strength, odds are that it is an external issue. If you have good signal strength but poor connection speed, then it's probable on your pc (or someone elese is using up all your bandwidth). Is your router secured?

Hello All,

First, a little background. My ISP is Clearwire and I am on a plan that consists of up to 3 Mbps down / 512 Kbps up. My Clearwire modem is connected to a Linksys (WRT54G) wireless router. I have a Windows XP laptop with built in B/G Wi-fi (radio manufacturer is Broadcom). I also have a Windows Vista laptop with built in B/G Wi-fi (radio manufacturer is ???). Both of the wi-fi radio drivers for these computers are current. The firmware for my router is also current.

I placed both the XP and Vista machines about 6 feet from the router, so signal strength is "Excellent" with a data transfer rate indicated to be 54Mbps. I am using IE 8 (freshly cleared cache) on both machines. Using speedtest.net, the XP machine averages about 1.6 Mbps down and 0.5 Mbps up. The Vista laptop averages about 2.9 Mbps down and 0.5 Mbps up. During my testing, I closed all unnecessary programs, and tested the machines one at a time. (As a side note, I also have a desktop running Windows Media Center Edition (XP) with a WMP54G pci wireless adapter. This computer is a little farther from the router, but I still get an "Excellent" signal. I am getting the same poor speeds as the XP laptop.)

Just for fun, I connected both laptops to my router via Cat 5 cable and both machines averaged about 2.8 Mbps down and 0.5 Mbps up. My router had been in Mixed mode (B and G), and a friend suggested I change to G mode only. I did this and saw no difference in download/upload speeds. I... Read more

Hello there, I've been having a persistent problem with my wireless internet ever since I began using it, and I'd appreciate some help in fixing it.

My wireless connection is to a Huawei Echolife HG520b router provided by TalkTalk. I'm using an Acer Aspire 5536 laptop, equipped with an internal Atheros AR5B91 Wireless Network Adapter. The connection information says that my connection is 54.0 Mpbs, which should equate to a few Mb/sec of download speed, if I'm correct.

What I get is anywhere between 10 - 50 kb/sec which, as you can imagine, is not awesome for downloading large files, or streaming video. As I type this, it's taken me over an hour to download a 94MB file.

Can anyone help me out with this?

 

Answer:Poor download speeds on wireless internet connection

Did you try a wired connection? I think for one, you're confusing your wireless link speed with the ISP connection speed, the two are not related. My guess is you have a slow ISP connection, possibly the result of ISP problems.

I need to figure out the reason(s) behind, and what to do about, my poor internet connection. It's very inconsistent. It can be pretty adequate at times, and at other times it's really laggy. I am in a 3-story house in Boston. The modem/router (both in 1 device) is in the common room on the second floor. I'm relying on the wireless, since winding a cable down the stairs and across the hallway would be very unwieldy.

**********************

So, first problem: I don't understand this situation.

If the problem is simply poor wireless signal strength, then why is my internet connectivity not consistently bad? It's only bad sometimes. Or much of the time. But the point is, it's not always good, it's not always mediocre, it's not always bad. It varies between bad and mediocre and sometimes *really* bad. Why would it vary? Is it possible for a router to output poor signal sometimes, mediocre signal sometimes and good signal sometimes? Doesn't it always transmit the same quality signal??

Secondly, still with first problem, why does Windows tell me that the signal strength is fine? The quality of my experience appears to be completely (or maybe just mostly) decoupled/not correlated with how many bars I see in the task tray. It seems that sometimes I see 4 bars and yet websites grind to a halt. Other times I see 2 bars yet browsing is fine. Wtf?

I think my roommates on the second floor do not experience any issues. I haven't ask... Read more

Answer:Diagnosing and what to do about poor internet connection (likely wireless signal)

Interference can give you a false sense that everything is perfect. Most likely there are many people in the area who are using wireless device, or even the same provider with modem/wireless router combo where it's left on the default Wireless Channel.

I'd suggest using inSSIDer to determine the relative signals in your immediate region and try to move to a channel that has less interference. Of course distance wont help much either if it's interference from neighboring wireless devices, which can also cause the instability sometimes and not in others. I'd try that and go from there.

I went to Dell and saw there was an update for my wireless connection for my laptop. Ever since I downloaded my connection goes from fair to good, when it used to be excellent. I then downloaded the updates for my desktop to which the router is connected to but this still has not made my laptop connection better. What should I do?
 

Answer:Downloaded wireless update for my laptop now I have a poor connection

It's pretty unusual for a wireless driver update from Dell to cause a problem, but since it apparently has go into Device Manager - right click on your wireless adapter - Properties - Driver tab - Roll Back Driver - and see if this returns you to your previous good connections. When doing something like this it never hurts to Restart afterwards just to make sure things are cleaned up.

As an aside I'm always eager for a driver update when I'm having trouble with a device; but when a device is working satisfactorily I don't even think about updating a driver.

Hi, I have recently purchased a new laptop which I bought in US, and use it in the UK.

Laptop Specifiication: Gateway ID49C07u
Intel Core i3-350M processor
4 GB DDR3 Memory
Intel HD Graphics
500 GB HDD
Windows 7

I have been unable to get a strong wireless internet connection on my laptop since I bought it. Obviously since I bought it in the US, I can not return to the store I bought it from, hence why I have come here to look for advice!

I am at University, and connected to a network in my halls of residence which is provided by the landlord- this means I have no access to the actual router. I can get a wireless connection, although it is a very weak/ low strength connection, causing my internet to run slowly.

Everybody else in my flat, who are connected to the same network, are able to get a much stronger connection than I am, and do not encounter the same problems. When i first turn my laptop on, and go to connect to the network, it shows an 'excellent' strength connection. However, once I connect, after around 30 seconds or so this drops again to give me a weak connection.
When I open the details of my network connection, it says I am receiving a speed of 54.0 Mbps

I have also tried to connect in places where I know I could previously get an excellent connection on my old laptop- I have still encountered the same problem, of only picking up a very weak wireless signal.

A lower number of wait states won't make it incompatible.  I would try reseating it.  Also, after a configuration change, it may take longer for the first POST - maybe up to a minute.  Sometimes, particular brands and models have compatibility problems.  If it still doesn't work, I suggest returning it for a different brand.  My choice is always Corsair Vengeance.  I've never had compatibility issues.  Other people may have other favorites.

Answer:Yoga 510-14isk cpu upgrade

Hi RefurbishedYoga,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking with i3-6100u specification here for the supported socket show BGA (ball grid array) or soldered onto the motherboard so it cannot be upgraded.
 
Similarly, as the hardware manual does not offer steps for CPU removal, page 70-71 item 4 show description of the motherboards with the CPU that it comes with too. So upgrading the CPU would mean changing the entire board instead.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hello, on my yoga 500 when i play a game the screen begins to flicker black screen due to nvidia. Updating drivers didn't help. Installing old drivers failed. Changing settings any way didnt help. The only way is to completely disable nvidia card, but it looses a lot of performance. My graphs are: intel hd 520 and nVIDIA 940m. Someone help? And yes, it happens on AC power too. EDIT: I forget to say weirdrst thing: it says I have 920m!

Answer:Yoga 500-14isk nvidia problem

Hi,  NsNidpl ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
This sounds like screen tearing, where the graphics card is rendering frames faster than they can be displayed.
Some games cope better than others, do you notice a difference in different games? Enable vsync in the game, this should resolve the issue.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi! I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 710-14isk in France which comes with a charger known as "Wall charger" : this one http://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/chargers-and-batteries/chargers/PWR-ADP-BO-65W... I'm moving to Canada next month for 2 years and I would like to know if this charger can be turned into a US / Canada charger by changing only the wall plug? It seams that the plug can be separate from the rest of the chaeger but I didn't find how.I didn't find on the lenovo store any plug to replace my french plug as well. Do you know if something like that exist and where I can find it?If not I guesss it's easier and cheaper to buy only a universal plug adapter, but since I'll stay in Canada for a long time, a proper integrated solution seems better for me ! Thank you for your help !

Hi, My camera is not working where I get the error message 0xA00F4244(0xC00D36D5) in the windows camera app.  The camera worked perfectly on 08/03/17 but did not work at all today. I checked the drivers and got this.Name: EasyCameraDevice type: Imaging devicesManufacturer: BisonLocation: 0000.0014.0000.005.000.000.000.000.000Device status: Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer (Code 45). To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.  There is an option to click called "learn how" in the windows camera app along with the error code, this lead me the microsoft website where I followed one of the steps to resolve this issue. I tried to update the driver which didn't work then I tried the option "Uninstall your webcam driver and scan for hardware changes". The steps I followed can be seen in the link below: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13753/windows-10-can-not-find-or-start-the-camera Neither of these options worked where "imaging devices" does not appear in device manager, even when you select "show hidden devices". There was an option to contact microsoft regarding the issue, to go into a live chat. I was unable to contact lenovo live chat so I tried microsoft's. In the live chat they controlled my laptop remotely to try resolve the issue.

Answer:Camera Not Working - Yoga 510-14ISK

I managed to resolve this immediately after posting all that and going through all of that ordeal... I looked at my keyboard, saw the camera symbol on F8 and decided to press it to see if it does anything. The camera was reenabled and back to working perfectly. I remember someone in the past week decided to press loads of keys on my keyboard messing, turns out they pressed F8... So if you have this issue try pressing F8 or the alternative button on your computer before you do anything! Or you could end up wasting an entire evening and night (literally) searching forums for information trying to fix it yourself, being on with customer support remotely accessing your computer, reinstalling windows and loads of drivers, uninstalling your antivirus and also being told by Lenovo to reset your laptop to factory settings in their email support.   Hope my embarrassing situation saves you hassle in the future, also to show you to learn to laugh at yourself when something like this happens, I know I certainly am now. Good luck, Thomas

Hello, Just received this laptop yesterday and liking it so far. Trying to update as many drivers as possible which lenovo seems to make difficult with their own customs one. One of the drivers is the Intel HD Graphics one, which provides an error when i do a solution centre scan - forget this issue for a sec, apparently this is a false positive but is fixed by newer drivers. When I go to install the latest Intel VGA driver for my machine (updated 12/8/16), i get through the installation and then get an error message when it finishes up telling me the  "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the manufacturor" Of course when i go to install one direct from intel I also get this message. I'm not sure what to do from here? Why is the driver on the Lenovo website not recognised? The driver remains on an old version (now over a year old). Help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Jack

Answer:Yoga 500 14ISK plugged in not charging

Actually this is fine. Thas is the way it should work. Your battery life is calculated in charging-decharging cycles. Imaging that if the charger went on after dropping from 100% to 99% and charged your battery again to 100%...and then it goes off and the level drops again to 99% and then again...the charger is on to charge it fully to 100%, this costs a lot of more cycles that dropping to lets say 96-97%. This causes less wear to the battery

I bought Lenovo Yoga 500-14ISK (i7 6200, 8GB RAM, 1TB, 2GB Nvidia). Machine performance is not as good what the specs looks. Machine took quite long to startup initally, when you close lid the machine goes into standby/sleep mode but upon opening the lid machine doesnt show up anything on screen and BIOS setting shows System Memonry a RAM as 0MB.
 
This machine has already been replaced once as it was brand new and found these issues 2 days after buying, they gave me a new machine but new also has same issues. I updated all drivers, windows update and even tried one key recorvery (also windows 10 reset - remove everything). But problems remained same.
 
Upon searching found that it was issues with other Yoga 500 machines too had same issues and there were some URGENT BIOS fixes. Being techinical guy at first thought did not try using the BIOS utility on this machine as model number were different (In list of machine supported this machine was listed). After trying hands on other solutions, I tried running the BIOS utility and it failed (as expected - This BIOS utility is not for this model).
 
I can take machine back to retailer but know the problem even if they give me new machine again will have the problem in that too.

Hello, I have a Yoga 500 14ISK purchased in December 2015. It runs Windows 10. It is failing all over the place. The power up is unreliable. Sometimes it boots, sometimes it doesn't. When it does boot it takes an age. It wont perform a system update of something to do with a "foundation". It merely hangs. And when I tried to check the BIOS I pressed the nova button with a paper-clip and the keyboard lights up but nothing happens. The little white light on the power button is lit but nothing is happening. I have a black screen and nothing else. Is there a major flaw in these laptops? The whole piece of kit looks great but the number of problems with it are unbelievable. How do I get this laptop working properly? 

Answer:Yoga 500 14ISK Nova button does not work

Hi deanol , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
The integrity on the One key recovery features upon access thru the Novo key may be the issue.
Best to initially run diagnostics to check further. This may explain why it failed booting at some time. 
 
Have us updated on the results , just write down any error code as this may be needed by tech support for decoding. 
 
Regards

My keyboard stopped suddenly working. First the mousepad froze and when I got it working I realized that the keyboard isn't working. When I try to click anywhere it immediately starts typing "zzzzzzz..." and won't stop. I am currently using my laptop in tablet mode. I was able to type a, q and 1 when holding down the letter z, but I updated the bios and now nothing works (I was previously also able to 'disable' the letter z, when holding it down with the buttons next to it). Could it be possible to fix the problem or should I give up and take it to repairs?

Hi all, Recently bought a Yoga 500-14ISK (i5-6200U and NO Nvidia GPU). I have not yet updated to Windows 10 build 10586, so maybe that's the issue, but I wanted to confirm: I'm using the 45W power brick that came with the laptop, but the Lenovo Settings app is giving an error saying "The AC Adapter has limited support, cannot support your computer fully and should be replaced as soon as possible". If I try a 120W brick from a ThinkPad W450 it says that the AC adapter is working normally. How is this possible since I'm using the specified adapter for the laptop? Thanks!

Answer:Yoga 500-14ISK AC Adapter Limited Support

Update: Updated to Windows 10 version 1511, and updated the energy management driver and still showing "AC adapter has limited support"Is this a faulty adapter or should I wait for a driver update?
