Yoga 920 Wireless Connection Issue when Changing Wifi Networks

Q: Yoga 920 Wireless Connection Issue when Changing Wifi Networks

I currently have a Qualcom Wireless AC Card in my Yoga 920. When I change wifi networks, I don't always get the internet going right away (we have 2 networks at home and several different networks in the office). I would need to right click on the wifi icon in the task bar and click on troubleshoot, then wait for it to fix itself. This happens probably 90% of the time when I change networks (ie Home network, then when at the office, I connect to the Work network and have to perform the troubleshoot to get the internet going then vice versa when back home. Or even changing between our 2 different Home networks - as in from different ISPs and not just changing between 2.4 and 5ghz connection). Also, is there something wrong with Chrome for the 920? When I change networks, and get the internet going (as in the wifi icon property says that there is internet and the yellow triangle exclamation is not present anymore), google chrome does not automatically connect to the internet and load pages. Edge, on the other hand, does not have issues upon gaining internet connection after the troubleshoot. For reference, I have a custom built desktop. I have an Intel AC 8265 in it, and it does not have this issue when switching between our home networks and chrome does not any issue as well. So yeah, I have two issues. Any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I just bought a new computer, with WIN 7 on it and I can't get my wireless adapter to hook up with my network. I have all the latest drivers so that isn't the issue,and the adapter I'm using is a Netgear WN111v2, and the router is an apple airport, so I though it might be a compatibly issue, but from what my error message said on it was;

I have Toshiba laptop and Win 7. It is brand new laptop and original windows. I tried to install AWUS036H and it was successful but unfortunately adapter doesn't detect any networks. It happened with my old laptop with Win 7(Acer) and I had to reinstall windows fresh and it worked. But I wouldn't like to do it again here. As you may see on picture internal adapter has X in corner and it is working but RTL8187 doesn't, it just says Enabled and nothing happens. No networks detecting. In device manager everything is fine, no yellow icons. Also it is not detected by my ipconfig/all command. The same thing happens in safe mode

Adapter is not broken, it is working on linux. This is image from win 8.1 but it happens on my Win 7

What driver is currently installed?

Try this

Download the latest ar956x driver from here:

Release: 2014-07-22 [July '14]
OS: Windows 7 32/64bit
Status: WHQL
File: win7- (2585 KB)

Unzip the package and note the location
Uninstall the driver from the device in Dev mgr, remove software if presented (checkbox or prompt)
then update the driver from within Dev mgr using the unzipped inf file

Some reports on the Qualcom board indicate that you might have success with an earlier version, but I only see then on the site I linked.

Try the newest first , then the 255 (270 was the one the poster on Qualcom complained about)

Maybe the Toshiba site has a version that works. My method is to install the base or original driver from the PC OEM support page and work up if the peripheral board driver doesn't help solve the issue.

Please fill in your SevenForums specs so members can be more help - All I know is that you have a Toshiba laptop with Win7 on it.

Please don't waste your time typing the information in a post - place it in your system specs - then any time you create a thread, people can look at your machine specs in the lower left hand corner of any post.

Specific model information is important, there are usually many Satelltite models.

Hi Sabrefresco ^_^,

Unfortunately, the ZIP File uploaded by you does not contain any Dump files for us to analyse

You would have to upload them manually. The Dump files are located in the path "C:\Windows\Minidumps\". Make sure you ZIP up all the dump files in the folder and then upload the ZIP File in your next post as an attachment.
You might need to copy the dump files to some other folder before you could ZIP them up due to permission issues.

Let me know how it goes ^_^.

I have a home wireless network that allows me to access the internet from my desktop as well as my laptop. It has been working fine. Recently on a business road trip, I stayed in three hotels that had wireless networks. I was able to connect to the first two hotel networks by clicking on the wireless taskbar icon and selecting the "available" network from the list. At the third location I had trouble. The wireless connection indicated "excellent" signal strength but IE would not open to a web site. I tried several things to no avail. Now that I'm back home I'm having the same problem with my home network. I chose the home network from the list and it says I have a wireless connection with excellent signal strength but IE will not open to a web site. Can anyone help?

Suddenly my Yoga 12 refuses to list all available wifi networks.  It only lists networks that I have used before, like my cellphone hotspot.  It will not list any new networks, like the Panera Bread or the Pete's I just walked into.  I am sitting in a very commercial area, and there should be at least 12-15 networks showing on the list.  But the only one itI can connect to is my cellphone.   And yes, my wifi adapter is up to date, I just updated the driver.  No change.  

A:Yoga 12 has stopped finding new wifi networks

Hi Holmes.
I don't have your machine, my only ideas or suggestions are:
1) Try to remove the device (Windows Device Manager) with a right click select "Uninstall" and select "Delete the driver software for this device". After that reinstall the driver againt.
2) Just in case check if getting closer to the router works at all. If moving it improves, maybe it can be something related to the antenna.
3) Maybe you can try something not official approved by Lenovo like finding an update driver for it. For example sometimes I use "DriverEasy" to find newer wifi drivers on my machines. Only use this if you feel confortable installing/uninstalling drivers on your machine.
This is what it cames to my mind right now. Sorry it is not too much.

I was having Wi-fi issues where it was constantly dropping at multiple locations and with a speed test was getting minimal readings. I bought a new Intel 8260 IEEE 802.11ac - Wi-Fi Adapter from Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0197W86IE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I Installed and right away speed went up about 20x. Now it will NOT recognize a wi-fi network unless I stand directly next to the router. Then I can move around the house without an issue. My router is broadcasting both 2.4 and 5. All other devices work with no issues. I tried disabling, enabling, updating the driver, rolling back the driver, deleting the old qualcom driver, resetting network settings etc. I can not seem to get anything to get it back to where it was the 1st day I installed. From what I can tell I have tried everything short of a SYSTEM RESTORE. Could this be a disfunctional card? Could I have damaged the card or wire during installation? Could something have become loose?  Anyone with any experience is greatly appreciated. My next step was going to be to open it back up and see of there was a hardware issue. Then my next step was going to be to purchase another. Thanks in advance.

I noticed when i watch netflix or other platforms, the display changes (brightness/contrast changes so the scenes appear redder) and almost as if the someone is switching the lights on and off in the actual show. But on other displays such as my phone, the colors are fine. I tried changing my battery plan, turning off the adjusting brightness, and disabling settings in the intel graphics settings. Nothing seems to do the trick! super distracting to watch a show and see the whole screen flicker every few seconds.

We have internet provided through the place we live for free. It is broadcasted as an unsecured wifi network. I can connect to the internet with no problems with my windows 7 computer. I recently got a windows 8 computer. I this computer has trouble staying connected to the unsecured network. It will connect for a few minutes then the limited connectivity will come up. Other times it says its connected has a full strength bar but the connection just spins and nothing loads. I have tried a few other forum suggestions with no luck. I have went to the settings and told the computer to not turn of the wifi to save battery which has not fixed the problem. I do not have access to the router and have not way to change anything with it. I have tried turning of the firewall turning of the windows defender to see it it was those programs but still have a connection problem. I am unsure what setting is keeping the connection from being stable with this computer.

Bad driver or has an antenna that is not as sensitive as the old Windows 7 computer. It helps to post the manufacturer & model of the computer.

Dear all, happy New Year! I have a major problem: My new IdeaCentre 310S - 08IAP desktop frequently drops wireless connection and  then is unable to find any wireless network at all.

I'm running a Toshiba Satellite L300 with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 and a T6400 processor. I haven't had any connection problems untill now. The problem I'm having now is Windows cannot find any wireless networks. I can connect through a Ethernet cable but not wirelessly. Another thing that bothers me is that I can't enable the network connection in the network connections folder. I don't know why this is happening suddenly as I haven't made any changes involving my network settings at all. I've looked it up on the internet but couldn't find anything that would help me. One solution that looked promising was: no wireless networks were found in range error

That didn't work though because my "event log" service was already set to Automatic so my case must be different. All help is appreciated and thanks a lot.

My organization utilizes quite a few Thinkpad Yoga S1s (20C0 and 20DK), all of them seem to have issues with the wireless adapters, they will intermittently stop detecting any wireless networks. We have noticed that this seems to happen most often when moving the laptop either between APs or to different wifi networks, and to get it to work again we either have to disable then re-enable the wireless AC adapter's driver or reboot, sometimes needing to do both. We have tried more recent drivers and it doesn't seem to have much effect, has anyone else seen this issue and do you have a resolution? Thanks

A:Thinkpad Yoga S1 wont detect wireless networks

You don't mention operating system?  It is hard to diagnose without seeing it, but try this:
Under device manager/network adapters, right-click the wireless card and select properties.  On the power management tab, uncheck the option that allows the computer to turn the device off to save power.

I have three laptops in the house, all running off a d-link di-614+ router, using 128-bit WEP. I'm generally computer savvy, and all was running well until I shut down my computer, which runs Windows XP Home. When I turned it back on in the morning, it was unable to connect to the wireless network. When I went to 'view available wireless networks', none showed in the list, and both the 'advanced' and the 'connect' connect buttons were greyed out, leaving me only with cancel. I have no way of getting in and manually inputting settings or anything to get it to connect back to the network. The strange thing is, the other two laptops in the house can connect to the router just fine using WAN, so I know it's not a problem with the router. I am utterly baffled with this. I am using the Compaq Multiport WLAN 802.11b network card. I also tried using another wireless card I had laying around, something by the name of Proxim Orinoco, but I experience the same trouble. I am utterly baffled. When I go into the configuration utility of my compaq wireless card, it kept searching for "Agere Systems" and there was no way to change that. So I went back into my router and changed the SSID to Agere Systems, and I was able to connect. The Wireless Connection displays that it is connected with good signal strength. However, the View Available Wireless Networks window still displayed no network name at all, all buttons were greyed out, and I wasuna... Read more

A:Wireless connection to public & private networks

when they connect to any wireless network for the first time vista should ask them if they want that connection to be public or private, they should choose private for the office network if it is secure and they wish to file share. For public wireless networks, where the purpose is to use the internet with file sharing disabled they should choose public.

Hi all,

I've got Win XP SP3 installed, and I connect to the internet using windows (instead of the fancy Intel Pro wireless connector)..

Now, this started happening a couple months ago because I used to have my computer on all night..

Windows suddenly gets disconnected from the network (due to no actions of my own), the preferred wireless connection is disconnected, and appears as 'automatic' instead of being 'connected'. Repairing the connection doesn't help this.

When I finally give up and restart, I get one of those windows where connection tray is trying to shut down properly (with an 'end task' choice). I can't quit and restart 'connection tray' because I can't find it in the task manager to end and restart.

Restarting the computer or the router generally fixes this issue. I want to know if there's any other way I can fix this?

BTW, tried windows update and everything seems to be up to date with no updates pending.

Any suggestions how I can stop this?

Hi everyone, I have a problem with a second hand laptop (the system I registered with) and I hope someone can help.

I will try to explain the whole situation in detail and hope I don't ramble too much!

I am using BT WiFi-with-FON to access the net and the connection is rather unstable so it drops out on occasion, but the problem is that when it does and I try to access the list of open networks none show (in fact the icon is completely unresponsive sometimes).

I used to run a different laptop with 7 and this didn't happen, if the connection dropped I'd simply go into the list of open networks, disconnect and reconnect and eventually the connection was up and running.

I suspect that there is a problem with the actual nework card because this appears to be the opnly problem with the system, but perhaps there is something else I havn't thought of.

The laptop was sold with Windows 10 installed but I restored 7 because, though it was working for the most part I found that (above preferring 7 anyway) the same problem manifested itself (I thought maybe it was just because the computer was having issues trying to run Win 10 because it was quite unresponsive in other areas as well, thankfully those areas are solved with the restoration of 7, but the network problem remains)

My network card is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 130

I hope I've been clear enough!

Thankyou for any help.

Ok, I access the internet by connecting to my univerisities wired LAN in my dorm room.
I also hav a Dell PDA with wireless LAN, so i bought a wireless access point and a USB wireless adaptor for my desktop in the hopes of setting up a wireless network and being able to share my university connection.
after a hour or two of setup work, i got my wireless network up and running, but i found that my university internet connection no longer worked. I was able to fix this problem by telling windows to share the internet connection from my wired LAN connection (not sure why this worked, lol, but it did).
Unfortuneately i am still unable to figure out how to make use of this internet connection from my PDA. Any help would be appreciated.
A few bits of info:

1. Usin Win XP SP2, MS PPC2003 on the PDA
2. Linksys wireless hardware, wireless G USB adaptor and wireless G broadband router/access point.
3. I am also unable to access the settings of my access point from the PC unless i disable my wired LAN connection. (i can access the settings fine via the PDA)
4. I've been able to access the internet on the PDA before by connecting to a friends WLAN.
5. All my connections are firewalled, but the problem is identical even with all firewalls disabled

if any other info would help then please let me know,

I promised myself I'd find the solution to this.. and I think I did, but my laptop is not cooperating..So b4 I keep going , I thought I'd ask :D...

Although my laptop Dell Vostro running XP would connect with no problem to my belkyn wireless router with no problem. I couldn't find wireless routers in my selection when I would go to a friend's house for example..

I found the solution to that:Start -> run -> typed "services.msc" -> and made sure that wireless zero configuration was "start" / enable...
I close that window and go into run -> "ncpa.cpl" -> ok -> view available connetions then refresh. I go to network settings ( I am in the wireless network window at this point), click "change advanced setting" ->advanced --> windows network --> and I click "use windows to configure my wireless network settings"...

After that, I can connect to the internet, but it keeps disconnecting after just a few seconds...

Reading on a solution, it says download updated drives...but I went to dell an the latest drivers are from 2007 or 2008... So there are no drivers to update.. At one point a few months ago I know I caused this when I went in and deleted all my neighbors's network connections. I did something wrong, b/c not even my own belkyn would show up, even though I connected fine...

Any ideas? Should I just d/l the drivers?

Thank you

A:Internet connection keeps disconnecting / WAS can't view wireless networks..

Won't hurt to reinstall the drivers . . even if they are not real new.

After that, thenext time is does not work, Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

Every day both at home and at work my computer is connecting to internet upon booting up, but quickly, the signal symbol at the bottom right (near time and date) turns to a yellow warning sign. Once this happens, a red "x" will show and the message 'No wireless networks found' will come up. All of my mobile devices, and all other computers at work don't seem to be having this problem, which rules out any issues with the routers involved. Even when I lose connection on my laptop, all other devices remain connected. I've searched through the forums for a solution  but I haven't come across one.

When I first boot up my (vista) laptop, wireless connectivity works fine but will then drop after a random amount of time. (becomes Limited connectivity)

Try to reconnect but then windows will not find my wireless network even though router (ZyXEL P660 HW T1) says WLAN is working fine.

Have tried with security disabled but no difference.

Any help much appreciated.

Hi, I apologize if this post has been posted before but only thing I could find was a thread of someone who had a similar problem but solved it somehow, randomly.

This is an *ancient* laptop...but it's been working perfectly the past lengthy years. Just recently, however, the wireless network does not work. It detects them so it's not that part of the wireless but for some reason, it will not connect.

With the cable, I can access the internet fine but won't work for the wireless

I'm not a tech-oriented person at all so I will most likely need step by step instructions and my jargon won't be accurate at all. Again, I apologize (especially if this is in the wrong forum!)

Thank you

i had a similar problem with an advent laptop that was given to me to fix, i tried all sorts of things but couldnt get it to connect to my home network (which is secured with a WPA PSK key), the strange thing is it will connect to a non secure network without a problem.

So try and see if it will connect to a network that has the security turned off.

Hi, I have installed Windows 10 Home within the last 3-4 months and I have been experiencing several issues. The one of concern is connecting to certain wifi networks. I am able to connect to my hotspot on my phone and certain wireless routers but I am unable to connect my home 5g router, well the 2g connection.I have tried using the following links to solve the problem:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-2-Pro-Wifi-connection-dropped-connect...and https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/WiFi-problem-No-internet-DNS-Not-working...  (namely the "ipconfig /flushdns" cmd, which did get the connection to come with 'connected, secured', however I was still unable to use the browser.) I have removed any vpn that I have been using and have updated by network driver via the device manager > network adapter > Intel(R) Wireless - N7260 > update driver software route have made no progress. Can anyone offer any assistance?

Hi, Resolving wifi issues with the Y2P is a hit and miss exercise. But do try the usual suspects.Regarding your home router, in what bands does it work? 2,4ghz, 5ghz, both? Since the 7260N only works in 2.4ghz you can try in the wifi network adapter settings (device manager) forcing the 2.4ghz only (not in auto).And since you?ve got the network card options open, do check if:uAPSD Support - disabled802.11n Channel Width for band 2.4GHz | 20Mhz802.11n Channel Width for band 5.2GHz | 20Mhz802.11n Mode | VHTFat Channel Intolerant | Disabled (allows 40MHz operation)Roaming Aggressiveness | Lowest (disables roaming, see Intel support site)Transmit Power | MediumWireless Mode | 802.11b/gDisable in power option the ?allow Windows to turn off device? Extra option you can do, changing your WLAN settings channel on your router: try changing to channel 1, 6 or 11 (not auto). I noticed a big improvement with a channel forced on my router instead of auto, and this did indeed almost resolved all my issues at home. When away from home I?m still dependent on the provider?s router configuration, so can?t do much about that.

I work in IT at a school and on numerous occasions, we are having students changing the wifi network on some of our windows 7 machines. I would like to remove the network icon from the taskbar or block access completely to changing network settings.
Due to the way our AD servers are centralized across multiple schools, I am not allowed to apply policies to devices under the domain. (all our windows machines are AD bound)
So far I have used lpedit.msc to lock students from shutting down or restarting computers (this also happens quite often) but I am unsure how to block changing networks.
Is this possible using lpedit.msc or secpol.msc? Keep in mind I cannot use AD Policies.

Thank you.

I have recently had a problem with my computer showing no wireless networks. There are other computers that can log on without a problem (obviously, one which I am using).

It is well noteworthy to mention that a few days ago there was an accidental download that initiated. Trendmicro caught it and says the last virus/malware found is: TROJ_DROPPER from C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventlog.dll.

(I thought trendmicro caught it, and Prevx cleaned my system, but it may be contributing to the problem or has done damage)

Since then, at school, I have noticed my computer was connected to the internet (I could still surf the web) but would say that it was NOT connected. When I went home, my computer would say it detected a wireless network, however, when I clicked on it it would say "no wireless network detected"

I tried a few things including:

1.Uninstalling the Network adaptor
Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN and letting it reinstall on start-up (No luck)

2.running HostXpert

3.and a few other things like, checking to make sure some necessary functions are started such as the wireless zero config. (et al).Click to expand...

I'm having very inconsistent wifi performance on my Yoga 910. This has the Qualcomm Aetheros network adapter. I already installed the latest drivers from lenovo site. I also adjusted the power settings for maximum performance on both plugged in and battery. I have full signal... I'm maybe 15 feet away from my router. My phone is getting nearly 100Mb/s and my expensive new laptop is struggling to hit 2Mb/s right now. I've searched and tried any and all fixes. It seems that a restart will usually get the speed back up, but only temporarily. I check resources and don't see any process or service using the wifi, yet the speed tanks like crazy. As an example, I was barely able to hit 2Mb, restarted and now its hitting 150Mb every time. After about 5 minutes, speeds are back down to 2-5Mb tops. What's going on here? -- Ed

A:Yoga 910 wifi issue

I'm experiencing WLAN performance issues as well. See the issues section in my review of the 910.
Are you also seeing WHEA-logger errors being reported in the Event Viewer? Does it help if you connect using the 2.4GHz band instead of the 5GHz band?
There's clearly something wrong, but whether it's really the hardware or the driver software is difficult to tell at this point. I've put a service call into Lenovo. I'll see what that brings.

Hey guys, Purchased a yoga 720 two months ago and in the beginning it would drop the WIFI connection maybe once a week. Over the last few days it's been dropping the WIFI connection every 5minutes or so.  After it drops it'll take some minutes to reconnect again unless I go to device manager and disable/enable the network adaptor. I've already tried updating the driver and no difference.I've already set the power plan for the network adaptor to 'maximum performance' and no difference. Surely there has to be a fix or something I can do? 

A:YOGA 720 constantly dropping WIFI connection.

Open up your Event Viewer and see if there are any WLAN errors. If there are a lot of them, then Windows update has probably wrecked something.
If that looks normal, download WiFi Scanner from the Windows store and see if one of your neighbors is interfering. If so, and you have a recent dual-band WiFi router, split the bands into different SSIDs, force the router to sit on a 5Ghz channel where there's no interference and force your 720 to connect to your router's 5GHz side only. 
If that's still an issue or you don't have a dual-band router, then start looking for things that interfere with WiFi, such as LED lighting, microwave ovens and so forth.
There's another thread going on this if you want to look at that.

Hi all, I am using a YOGA 92013IKB. Since I have installed this notebook the WiFi is not wirking stable. From time to time I lose connection to available WiFI's. I also tried different ones (home, office). Specaily I am recognize this behaviour when I am connect to external system by Citrix. If I use a cable connection the performance is perfect and stable. I do not get any kind of error message. Right now I am not sure if it is a windows issue (I am using Windows 10 Pro) or hardware / driver issue. All available updates are installed. Hardware is Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A Wireless Network Adapter. I have also installed Norton Internet Security. RegardsChristian

I looked around and didn't see any other posts exactly describing this issue, so sorry if others have already brought this up. I have a 720 13" that's acting very odd.  It'll sometimes go partially (showing only a 1/2 inch at the top of the screen) or completely black.  This happens mostly at the office.  When I walk it out of the office (and out of range of WiFi), it flickers a bit and starts displaying correctly.  I can turn airplane mode on, head back in the office, and it's fine.  As soon as it connects to the company WiFi again, it'll crap out on the display within a few minutes. When it's blacked out, I can still see the mouse if I move it up there, but can't see anything but streaks of dark grey distortion on the rest of the black screen.  Sometimes, the black area while very slowly drop down (1 pixel row at a time).  Other times, it stays that way indefinitely.  I've tried reinstalling the display, chipset, and power management drivers.  It happens at home and on cell phone tethering, but not nearly as often. Super odd issue.  It's 5 months old and still under warranty.  Anyone else having this issue?
