Q: Lenovo Yoga 700 14 inch - unreliable wifi experience - super slow

Ok so no one seems to be able to help me. I spent over a thousand and this pc is no good on wifi.How can i fix this??? It is so unreliable and slow.. sometimes just useless. Please help if you can.So does this machine not work with certain routers. I need to know. my router is a Actiontec from Verizon. it is not old but not new. Do the Lenovo yoga 700s just not work well with Actiontec? it has never had the speeds i should have ..not even close and sometimes just crawls. Terrible experience. Do you suggest i get a newer router? Who out there has had issues with WIFI with their Lenovo. NO one from lenovo can help me with this so please let me know your experience. Thanks.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am the owner of a brand new Lenovo Yoga 720, 13" screen, and the internet is pretty slow over wifi. I am getting download speeds 2x or 3x higher on my iPhone and on my wife's Macbook Air, and not sure why that would be the case as all devices are connected to the same wifi network. Anyway, any help would be much appreciated from the community. Thank you!

Hi,Is anyone facing issue with the wifi connection? The wifi on yoga 700 keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. When the wifi tries to reconnect, it's showing no internet access. I have other laptops connected to the same router and there are no connection issues with my other laptops, tablets, or phones. I've even tried to a different router (at a different location) and I still have the same issue. I contacted Lenovo customer service and they sent me link to download the wifi driver which I have done (uninstall existing driver and reinstall the drive that was provided by Lenovo CS) however, it would connect to the wifi and work fine for a while then the wifi disconncets and tries to reconnect over and over again (same issue). Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hey guys, was wondering if anyone had any experience with replacing the WiFi card in the yoga 700 or just replacing WiFi cards in general. I am thinking about upgrading the intel Wi Fi card on my 700 model (Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165, 802.11ac, 1x1 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0) .. :Looking for faster streaming speeds as well as signal strength  The question is I was looking at the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 card (it's the same card in the yoga 900 model) is it that much better and is it worth upgrading?  thank you

I've got a Yoga 700 11.6 inch, windows 10, 128 gb HDD and 8gb memory. Testing it and playing games I can see the computer is not performing to specs. I did a fresh re-install of Windows because I hated all the Lenovo apps added to it. Sadly I was still unable to install the Intel version of the graphics driver. but whatever, I have the Lenovo version. Still, benchmarks tell me this is performing well below the specs even for the Intel HD 515. I have everything set to 'high performance'. I've been told there's some BIOS settings I could change but frankly I haven't seen them. Is my computer being throttled, and if so how can I fix it?

Hey all,  I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 15-inch 4k and love it! Unfortunately, it was stolen in Mexico and I had to buy a new one upon returning to the States.  One of the first things I changed when I got my first 720 was the screen brightness. I switched off the "Adaptive Brightness" setting in System > Display settings and that seemed to make my screen nice and bright white.  Now, on my second computer, even at 100% brightness and with the Adaptive Brightness switched off, the screen looks much dimmer and not as crisp white.  Any thoughts on what might be going on? Thanks! Dave

hello there fellow Yoga 710 users,  one of the reasons why i picked up this Yoga 710 is because of its 'above average' battery life to compare with its competitor. this is based on reviews that i read and watch on youtube.  however, after using it for a few days, i dont think i was able to hit 7 hours or more on this machine. i did not put it under extreme load as i was using it only for word processing etc.  from the battery notification, it says around 4 hours and 40 minutes at 100 percent.  any of you guys encounter the same problem? or you guys were able to hit 7 hours or more for the battery life? just want to make sure that my battery is not draining for no reason appreciate your input guys  thanks

Every time I draw slowly (and sometimes even when I draw quickly) my lines become jittery and not in the wobbly sense. More in the "leaving-the-road" kind of way. Here is a video proof of my issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyrS63BTJ6AI really want to use this tablet for drawing but this annoys the hell out of me. Is this normal?

The pen I'm using is the active Pen 2 which feels really nice with the rubber tip. I used all kinds of applications like Photoshop, Sketchbook Pro, Windows Ink sketch, Sketchable and so on.

Greetings, I just bought Lenovo Yoga 330. It's been great, but i have one strange problem. When I wake the laptop from sleep, the CPU clock is stuck on 1.1 GHz (Which is its base clock). It won't go to turbo clock which is supposedly 2.6 GHz. The only solution i know is to reboot the windows, and the cpu clock is normal again.I know with ssd rebooting is fast, but still you need to wait some programs to start up. I'm a teacher, there are no breaks between my classes, i really need sleep mode to quickly use my laptop between classes.I know programs such Throttlestop from techpowerup can set the CPU to static 2.6 GHz, but it's not good for battery life. I need the dynamic clock, so the clock will low if the usage is low, and the clock will throttle up if the usage is higher.I am using windows 10 64 bit which was preinstalled during purchase. All the drivers are up to date, the BIOS also is the latest. I am wondering if lenovo team is already address this problem, i really hope they will release new BIOS soon. Sorry for my english, it's not my primary language.

I bought my wife a brand new Yoga 920 for Christmas in December 2017 for 1,299 dollars plus tax.  It was blazing fast. Set up was so smooth. The computer operated flawlessly. Best computer we have purchased in years. Only 4 months later, April 19th, when we tried to wake the computer up, it would not start. They keyboard backlights and power button would just flash. That was it. The screen stayed dark and nothing would happen. I called Lenovo support and they had me run through some basic troubleshooting and eventually told me the laptop had a hardware failure and I would have to send it back to them OR I could just bring it to a local Best Buy for repair. Since Best Buy was only 5 miles from my house, I brought it there. Only to be told by Best Buy that they don't repair them and they had to ship it to Lenovo anyway.  It took a month to get it back. So for a month we were without the computer. Then when we got it back, it was filthy. Scratched up, covered in greese and dirt. When I opened it up, there were hairs and food crumbs on the keyboard. The touch screen was covered in greesey finger prints that looked like they were just rubbed across the whole screen. It was disgusting. See pictures of the laptop below.  Furthermore, when we booted it up, it was slow. I mean SLOW. All our of documents were gone and the drive was wiped.

Hi there,I'm having all sorts of issues with the Lenovo Settings app on my X1 Carbon:- it's terribly slow, not a single action that doesn't show some sort of spinning wheel. - after launch it takes approximately 20 seconds to "update", until then it shows wrong data. - sometimes it shows wrong data even after some time. I mean it shows things switched on or off, which I definitely set differently.- sometimes it recognizes my 45W power supply as the original (saying "45W Power supply connected), sometimes not.- depending on above, it sometimes "thinks" I'm in an airplane, hence slows down the charging and shows a nasty airplane icon in the tray- almost all the time the app is active the fans are blowing full speed (I wrote in the title that the CPU load is high, I actually haven't verified that, I only noticed the fans revving up)- sometimes some of the power settings (airplane mode) aren't shown at all. I first have to click a few other buttons and then return to the power settings. I would have gotten rid of the app, but I find the 80% charging limit pretty useful and also the airplane mode.Unfortunately the Lenovo support doesn't even know what I'm talking about. They think airplane mode refers to WIFI and Bluetooth being switched off, like on the cellphone. They didn't believe me until I read on the phone what their own app says.  I tried to re-install the app and to un and/or re-install some of the services the Lenovo page recommends for my notebo...

I JUST bought the yoga 2 11 inch and literally out the box it's slow. It came pre-installed with Window's 10. I use IE and Chrome as browsers and they constantly freeze while i'm using. I have to revert to browsing on my cell phone because it freezes so often. Same goes for when I use Excel. It's constantly freezing and I get the "(Not responding)" message at the top. It will come back alive, but it will be unresponsive or frozen for about 30 seconds each time. And yesterday I've just about had it as it was worse than ever with my browsers constantly "not responding" literally every minute! I've restarted my laptop and that didn't help.

My laptop shuts down suddenly and I think it is either because of static electricity, cooling fan not working and unit shuts down because of over heating or both. In addition this laptop has terrible wifi reception. I have an old Dell Inspirion unit with Windows XP that still works and has great wifi reception. Anyway for the static electricity I think the problem is in the circuit between the ground connection between the computer (outside cylinder of male pin plug) pin and the electric ground pin of the plug to the wall receptacle. With the Dell laptop I get 0 resistance (using ohmmeter) across them. But with the HP I get anout 1 ohm and the resistance is in the transformer. With regards the overheating I used a vacuum cleaner with wand attachment to try to suck out dirt/lint through the fan discharge. Also I added rubber bump pads (sticking them with contact cement) to lift the bottom up higher to make it easier for cooling air to enter the bottom air intakes.  I  did not want to open up the unit. I saw how complicated it is from YouTube videos. I heard Dell laptops are easier to get into. The CD/DVD cover on the laptop will not open. I have to insert a wire through the hole near the button to open it. Alsio this laptop is super slow yet it has a i7-4710HQ CPU! HP this laptop sucks!

My fiance and I are in the same room as the wireless router. My computer is hooked up to the ethernet itself, no problem there. Our roommate is in another part of the house (far away from the router), and he says he's getting insanely fast internet. My fiance's laptop (which is the Compaq F700 duo-core laptop running Vista) was working great for a week or so at this house. Then suddenly one day she comes home from work, and her internet is running like it's hooked up to 28.8k. If she hooks up to the ethernet, the connection on her computer is amazing.
So...
- Roommate's integrated Wifi is working GREAT from far away from the wireless router
- Problem computer is ten feet from the router itself and getting terrible speed
- Definitely connected to our network (with a unique name)

So as far as I can tell, the problem is not our provider, not our router, and not range. It seems to lie solely with the way the wireless software (or possibly hardware) is set up.

No one changed any settings before this happened, but the computer is set up to update automatically.

If anyone has any input that could help, we would be incredibly grateful. We're at the end of our ropes on this one.

My laptop's wifi does not work most of the time.
The power led is onWiFi status shows I'm connected, at 3/5 strength in my usual location.

When I check the task manager, it'll download at roughly 30mbps for half a minute, and then the next hour it just sits there at 0kbps. Often, turning off wifi (for example, airplane mode) and back on will repeat the cycle, where it seems to work just fine for half a minute, and then flat out stops. It stays at 0kbps, occasionally jumping to a whopping 8kbps. I'd rather be on dialup.

The store has diagnosed the laptop and found no problems with the internal adapter.

So one of the things I eventually did was taking the wireless adapter from one of my other computers and plugging it in. It worked. After days of frustration, I figured: "Whatever. I'll just use this adapter since the other PC is basically a dust collector at this point". Fast-forward a few months and I'm back to where I started: for some reason my external adapter is now giving me the middle finger and I'm having the *exact* same issues now.

For example, I go to youtube and start watching a video in 1080p.

Works fine, buffers the first half minute, and then it's over. Nothing. No youtube, no mail, nothing. I'm not even getting local firefox error pages (the typical "connection failed" message) but the spinner just keeps spinning indefinitely.

I have a Lenovo Yoga 3 pro 1370 running Window 10 build 10586.104This is a fresh install less than one week old. I conducted a fresh install in an effort to solve a problem I have been having for over amonth now.With the WiFi network adapter enabled I am unable to move the laptop nor move the screen as this causes the entire system to freeze requiring a full reboot. Disabling the card through device manager allows me to move the laptop as normal. This happens irrespective of what applications are open at the time.The only error message that shows in the event logs is the following: "The system watchdog timer was triggered."  - System

Hi Guys, I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop. This is the second time I have had issues with the WiFi dropping out frequently.  The first time was when I first downloaded windows 10 - I downloaded a new driver from the Lenovo website and everything worked perfectly.  The last couple of months it has been playing up again. My phone and any other devices will be connected to the internet however my laptop will repeatedly disconnect from the internet, this happens a ridiculous amount of times everyday - and it's not just my home wifi! Im currently at my university library and it does the same thing. It just drops out randomly and says "not connected - no connects are available" I have to keep restarting my laptop for it to reconnect to the internet (I know that's probably not the best thing to do but it's the only thing that sometimes works). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver software, I've scanned for hardware changes and nothing comes up?? Has anyone got any ideas on anything else I could try?  Thank you all!

Recently there was a Wifi Driver issue, which got resolved when the service guy came and replaced it, 6-8 weeks ago. After that my Wifi works fine but has a bit of a performance issue - It takes some time to identify Wifi Networks. If I switch on my bluetooth, the wifi performance degrades more, i.e. more time to identify network and the speeds of download/upload deteriorates a lot (A video in Youtube 720p quality is brought down to 144p).In addition it seems to take a lot of time for my bluetooth to identify a device. Does the Wifi and Bluetooth share the antennas? If so does this mean the antenna have a problem now?Is there a way to troubleshoot this? maybe by checking speed on Wifi and bluetooth.

Hi
 
I odn't have that model, but just in case what you can always try is to get the latest wireless driver, sometimes I have some issues with some older wifi drivers.
 
Check the support site and see if there is a newer driver for the wifi. Check your "WIndows Device Manager" and see the version of the driver you have installed for the wireless adapter.
 
I also like to test the wifi with different routers on some other networks just be sure that is not a local problem of my router too.
 
It is also good the check the maintenance manual of your model to see the cables and the antennas. I'm not sure if that is exactly your model, but it seems it was two antennas for the WAN network and 2 for the LAN. It does not specify anything about the bluetooth.
 
Regards

Hi, I bought a brand new Lenovo Yoga 910 series laptop, costing a fortune. Its not even 20 days since I bought this laptop, I am seeing the wifi adaptor losing the connection within 5 mins of usage. Whats worse, it causing my wifi router to jam as well, and all of my other devices loses connection. I have few other devices, including a lenovo thinkpad, where i never faced any issues till date.  After some research I found out that the wifi adaptor in the lenovo yoga is Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4a  and it has lots of issues on Windows 10 and people are complaining on multiple forums about it since couple of years. Suprising that Lenovo nor Microsoft nor Qualcomm has not fixed it yet or I couldnt find a proper solution till now.  It is such a bad customer experience, that such a basic thing like wifi connectivity is not working properly on such a high end laptop. I feel I just made a bad decision of buying this waste device instead of a Mac book Pro. Hope someone from Lenovo fixes this for me or else I shall return this device.
