YOGA 720 constantly dropping WIFI connection.

Q: YOGA 720 constantly dropping WIFI connection.

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?

Preferred Solution: YOGA 720 constantly dropping WIFI connection.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

Windows 10 (had the same issue on Win 7) HP EliteBook Laptop Intel 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 I am constantly dropping the wifi signal on this laptop. I dont believe it is the modem as I have checked my phone when I have lost the signal and the phone can still surf the net. I have also checked other devices and they seem to be working fine. I notice it the most when I am playing a game or streaming video. But it also happens when I'm surfing the net and checking email.  So far I have tried updating the drivers, making sure everything else on here was up to date, I installed a driver locator from hp to make sure that everything was all good (it says it was) I looked through device manager to see if there were any issues, and now I'm out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated, this is starting to get annoying

A:Constantly dropping my wifi signal

Here are a few options:
 
Change the power setting on the device:
 
Device Manager
Locate your wireless card and right click>Properties>Power Managment,
uncheck the box that says "Allow the computer to turn this device off to save power"
 
If nothing then:
 
Open Command Prompt(As Admin) and type:
 
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconifg/release
ipconfig/renew
 
 
If nothing still then:
try resetting your Winsock settings and disable IPv6 (unless you need it)
 
Reset Winsock:
 
Start up notepad and copy and paste this into notepad:
 
@echo off
netsh winsock reset
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset reset.log  
echo You now have to reboot your PC!   
pause
 
Then save it on your Dessktop as "winsockreset.bat" (or whatever you please) just make sure it's a .bat file,
Save on desktop
Close Notepad
Run it.
 
Try Them out one by one and see if any of those fix the issue. Goodluck and let us know!

TL;DR: WiFi no work. Keep disconnect. Driver uninstall. Reinstall. Now WiFi keep become limited. What do?


Let me first tell a little bit of history about my laptop (Dell Inspiron 15R).

I got it a month and a half ago, and lived in a dorm room with only one LAN port. I used the LAN port and downloaded a Virtual WiFi Router program to share the connection with my roommates. There were no problems at all.

Then I came back home two weeks ago and connected using WiFi (the modem is in my brother's room, and we have no cable long enough to connect to it). That's when problems start occurring. The WiFi would drop every three or four; this was not so serious. But in recent days, it would begin dropping every hour, give or take another 10 minutes. This problem becomes more common when I'm playing League of Legends, where it would drop every 20 minutes or so. What I don't understand is that it drops the connection for seemingly no reason. When I check the WiFi list, the connection is still there, it's just that I'm not connected and have to reconnect manually. Another weird issue is that it takes me about a minute or two to reconnect; usually it's instant. In addition, it will attempt to connect for a long time (just says there "Checking network requirements..."), then it will say the connection attempt has failed, BUT it actually succeeded in connecting.

I've Googled and found out that others are experiencing the problem too, and managed to fix it by changing the powe... Read more

Hi everyone,

I have an older (ok, it's really really old) Dell laptop that I still like to use for a few things. I've never ever had problems with my wifi dropping out in the 11 years I've owned it. This Christmas I got a new router (TP Link Archer C7) and set up both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks in my house. I'm getting fantastic connection speeds and awesome coverage on all of my other devices. I should mention I've named the two networks separately and connect each device based on its capability. This Dell machine will only connect to the 2.4 GHz network obviously. Ever since I've put it on the new network my wifi drops out at least once every ten minutes. There doesn't seem to be any pattern or cause. I've tried updating the driver for the network card with no improvement. I've also run Xirrus Wifi-Inspector and it does not show any loss of the actual signal when the network card drops the connection.

Any help would be greatly appreciated because this is beyond frustrating!!

I have a Netgear CG3000D-RG cable modem through Charter, and the connection is absolutely perfect when connected with an ethernet cable, but any device connected with wifi constantly drops out (even in the same room)...sometimes every 10 or 20 minutes, but just as often it will happen over and over constantly. Disconnecting and then reconnecting fixes the connection entirely until the next drop out. It doesn't get slow or anything, it's either on or off.

Any ideas? Maybe a setting I'm not aware of? Or is this a hardware failure? The last thing I want to do is "rock the boat" with Charter because I'm afraid tampering with equipment might make my whole connection unstable again, like I've had so much trouble with in the past.

My new notebook running Windows 10 constantly drops wifi connection to router on the 5.2GHz band. The wifi adapter is an Intel 7265 AC unit and I have updated the driver from the Intel site. Android devices in the same area have no problem so it doesn't appear to be the router/channel.Troubleshooting suggests "Default gateway not available" or "Protocol missing". Windows fixes problem only for it to reoccur. When connected on the 2.4GHz band there seems to be no problem. Regardless of proximity to the router, the same issues arise. Any suggestions to remedy this appreciated as its spoiling my enjoyment of an otherwise great machine

Hi All,

My daughter's laptop shows the home network, full strength wifi. Problem is that it will connect, show that it is trying to identify the network, identifies, then either there is no internet connection or when it does get full connectivity, it will then almost immediately, lose the connection and then attempt a re-connect. If I plug in an ethernet cord, it stays connected with no issues.

The Toshiba only exhibited these problems after I allowed a microsoft update... I have since uninstalled the update but the compouter is still do ing it.

Basically I turn on and am able to connect up.. go onto msn.. onto internet explorer.. then both stop working. msn says i am signed out. Internet explorer wont surf. If i go to the network icon in the bottom right it is still connected.. If I click it and bring up the control panel it says I am still on line and everything is ok.. Only if I disconnect and then reconnect will internet explorer and msn start working again. This happens about every 2 mins or so.. fine for a min or two then nothing.

While using Windows 7 x64, I get sporadically disconnected from the internet for no obvious reason. The wireless utility always shows as connected (though it very rarely does flash a "limited or no connectivity" symbol for a moment when it loses the connection) and the driver for my wireless card (a DLink Airplus G DWL g510 Rev.B) says it's up to date.

On 32-bit Windows XP, I don't have this problem. It is also not a problem for any other computers in the home. As this is a completely fresh install, a virus or malware program is more or less out of the question. I have disabled all firewalls and even uninstalled AVG while trying to make this work; nothing has. Streaming video is interrupted and usually forces me to refresh the page, World of Warcraft will play alright for usually a -very- short time before "lagging out" and disconnecting me.

This happens usually every few minutes, somewhere around 3-5, I'd hazard. It seems fairly regular but I haven't been able to actually time it. I'm using the default Microsoft wireless connection app--so no utilities running. As I mentioned before, there is no error message aside from a very rare flash of the "limited or no connectivity" message, no firewalls, and no antivirus.

Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

This is probably a familiar problem to you seeing as Google pulls up so many results about it, one moment the network is fine and then for no apparent reason my internet connectivity is dropped, I can't load any pages. I can still ping websites and some other internet services do still work but I can't load any web pages.

There are no events in the log of any significance that can tell me what is going on.

Only a system restart will remedy the problem, when restarting the computer hangs for quite a while before doing anything too, that only happens when the internet connectivity is dropped, the rest of the time it restarts almost instantly.

I have read and tried every fix in the book. Setting my NIC so the computer cannot turn it off to save power. Disabled IPV6 and relative services, disabled QoS scheduler, fiddled with the registry, reset winsock and tcp/ip settings, installed every update going and the problem STILL REMAINS! I can't find any other fixes on the subject. God knows why Microsoft haven't been able to fix this yet!!!!

It's driving me up the wall so if anyone could offer some help I'd appreciate it big time.


The most annoying thing is that I solved the problem when I installed Vista a while ago but can't remember what I did!

Hello first time poster here. Thanks for the help in advance.

For the last 2 weeks, I keep receiving a pop notice in the bottom corner right of my taskbar saying, "A network cable is unplugged." I checked all my cables and they are connected fine.

I also constantly get a message to tell me to connect to the internet and it asks me if I want to work offline.

I tried many possibilities and here is what I have ruled out:

ISP/Modem: My internet service works fine when I directly connect to my modem. I ONLY have problems when I am connected through my WGR614 netgear router.

Loose/defected cable: I know my cable works fine because the cable works fine when it is directly connected to the modem.

Virus/Malware: I did a scan and checked my system thoroughly. There doesn't seem to be a virus.
The only thing I can pinpoint to is my router. I think it is my router because my connection works fine when connected to the modem. When it is connected to the router, I frequently get disconnected as often as every 10 minutes. It is very random. Sometimes I get the "unplugged cable" message every 10 minutes while other times I get it every hour or so.

I also wonder if it could be a registry problem? I recently used some programs to clean and scan my registry. I wonder if in cleaning my registry, some necessary registry files were deleted?

I do not think that my router is physically wrong or defected. I have had it for over 3 years so I doubt it is hardware rel... Read more

Hello,

If it works well in Safe Mode with Networking perhaps your Norton might be the culprit. You may uninstall Norton completely for now by using the Removal Tool. If this resolves your issue you may reinstall Norton back or perhaps try MSE, it's a great Anti-Spyware/Anti-Spyware software.

Hello, my internet keeps slowing down, and the router drops connection every once in a while. This has been happening on 2 different routers now. Internet is DSL, and I've tested out to see if it was the modem, and it wasn't. The internet will work fine for a little while, then slow down, and eventually drop the connection. This is a recent problem. The ISP suggested it was probably how the router and the modem interact with each other. This isn't exactly a wireless issue because the hardwired computer experiences slowdown.

The router brands are D-Link DIR-655 (Fairly old) and Linksys WRT160N (Brand new). Any Ideas? I've tried every possible option I can think of to get the things to go normal speeds. I've even upgraded firmware on both.

Ran the latest MS update to the spring update, ever since then, the wifi drops often.   The Windows 10 troubleshooter will reset the adapter and it will work again for a short time.   I have all the Lenovo updates and Windows updates.

Dear all,
I generally have good WiFI connection, but in two rooms so I am running a TP-Link system for Wifi through my powernet, which provides me with WiFI in our working space. No problems here.
I have been noticing that on my laptop, when I sit in the living space, my internet connection is dropping WITHOUT losing connection to the WiFi network. This makes me reset my adapter but mostly without succes. Sometimes it spontaneously regains internet connectivity. This happens at random (to me). My cell phone doesn't have the same problem, nor does my GF's computer.
I notice that when i go back to the workspace (where wifi is distributed through my TP-link), more often then not I instantly regain connection. Which makes me think this is a problem of IP adress that is different when switching from Wifi through router and Wifi through TP-link?

Here is the runout for my ipconfig /all and
Output for 'netsh wlan show all'

Robin

I got a new pavilion dm4 with windows 7in April, and I had no problems with connecting to the Internet untill a month or so ago. When I start the computer and it connects to my wifi, the connection will work for anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. After that my computer seems to have dropped the Internet cOnnection, but it says that I still have a connection in the network panel. When I try to load a web page, it freezes up or something, because nothing happens and it eventually tells me I'm not connected to the Internet, even though it says I still have a signal. I have to restart my computer, then I will get maybe another 10 minutes and it happens again. I'm pretty sure it's not the router because my Mac has no problem with the connection. Any ideas on what's wrong would be appreciated.

Hi, My wifi connection keeps dropping intermittently, some times as often as every 5 seconds. Have looked around for wifi adapter updates, have tried hardware re-set, but no success. This is not a location/signal strength/internet connection problem -- all my other devices are connected fine. Wifi adapter: Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Would appreciate any help!

Because of the way my house is set up I have my desktop computer connecting to the Internet wirelessly. I have my cable modem connected to a wireless router/switch which broadcasts the signal all over my house. For the most part I leave my desktop on and running 24/7 and at least once a day my computer drops the wireless signal and I have to turn off and turn back on my computer to reconnect.

I have a Linksys "N" Router and a Linksys "N" WiFi adaptor connected to my desktop via a USB cable so I can put the antenae up high in my office to get a good signal. I used the CD that was in the box with my WiFi adaptor to set up my WiFi adaptor but I have Windows managing my WiFi connections. I am running Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3 installed.

The situation with loosing my WiFi connection is unacceptable and I have tried everything I can think of to find the problem to no avail and I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that WiFi is not suited for 24/7 applications and I am going to have to go up in my attic and pull a Cat 5e cable into my office and hardwire my Internet access.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and can they make any suggestions as to how I can fix this problem? Thanks.

Hello I'm a fairly new Vista user living in school housing. I'm on a wireless network and every 1-3 hours about my connection will drop. I dont believe this to be an issue with the school's Wifi as my roomates connection never seems to drop. I can always hop back onto the network but it's becoming annoying when I've been right in the middle of something. Unfortunately I'm not very computer savvy so I'll tell you what information I have but it probably wont be enough.

I'm not on a laptop, this computer was built.
When I looked up my Wireless adapter all i can find is 802.11n Wireless LAN.
I have already tried updating the drivers for this.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me

Ok I have this issue with my wireless connection.

Ever since I installed SP2 for XP it has been happening. I will boot up it connects and my icon in the taskbar is fine. After about 5 minutes, it says it lost connection but I can still browse or chat or whatever. Another 5 minutes later I lose all connection.

I click "view available networks" then try and connect to my wireless router. It times out eventually and says it cannot connect, yet I can browse again. and it will seem disconnected like that until I reboot.

I have reseated the card, and reinstalled drivers. but it has only happened since I installed SP2.

I am reluctant to uninstall SP2 as it came with MovieMaker 2.0 which I am using for a project and would prefer to be able to keep using it for a while.

does anyone have suggestions on what else I can try?

Thanks
 

A:WiFi Connection dropping

OK I resolved the issue.

the culprit... Microsoft. Stupid SP2.

Also I found a standalone install of Movie Maker 2.0 on Download.com but its not anywhere I could see on microsoft.com

Anyway I removed SP2 and the problem is now gone.

gotta love it

My wifi keeps dropping the connection randomly. I can only get it to reconnect by using ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew which fixes it every time. Please help, I am running Vista Ultimate.
 

A:Wifi keeps dropping connection

Do you have this problem with an ethernet connection?

Do multiple computers have this problem?

Have you checked for wireless interference?

Make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter. If it is an integrated adapter on a laptop it should come from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

Make sure you have the latest firmware upgrade for your router. Then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

I've got a Belkin G wifi card, and a Linksys B router...
This is in my new computer, but firstly about my old computer
It worked perfectly on there, then I moved it to this one and now it randomly drops every couple hours

It's the same OS, same driver, same card, same router, everything is the same
No other computers on the network are having this trouble

To fix it I don't need to restart or disable the card and re-enable or anything...
I just disconnect from the network and reconnect

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Hi. I had to get a new computer a few weeks ago after a terrible accident with my laptop which had been running vista 32 bit with no problems what so ever. The new computer has a built in a/b/g adapter that i believe is by realtek (8185), and is running vista 64 bit. My router is a linksys WRT150N.

My network connection drops seemingly randomly, sometimes staying connected for a few minutes, sometimes for hours. The only predictable thing about it, is that it will always drop when the computer is left alone long enough to sleep or pull up a screen saver, and it will always drop when there are more than a few pages loading at once or if there i have loaded multiple videos in a row, such as on youtube. Haha.. in fact it dropped while typing this post. The only way to get it back is to go disable then re-enable the adapter, at which point the connection will stay active for who knows how long again before dropping.

Any thoughts? Linksys of course has no drivers available for anything 64 bit, but I would like to upgrade my internal to a wireless N card. I just cant seem to find anything yet that supposedly plays well with vista 64 bit (home premium).

Thank you so much in advance for any assistance.

Make sure that you have the adapter power setting to maximum performance. It might be a problem with the network adapter going to a power save mode.

Hello all,Recently my Laptop connexion in wifi just got worse and worse in just a few days. I have no idea why. First off : my router is fine, my others devices have their usual connection and it is stable (even others wifi devices). I've tried pluging an ethernet cable and the issue was here too so I'm pretty sure it comes from my computer. I've ran Malwarebyte twice now, full scan with AVG and nothing came out. Drivers are up to date but I've tried to go to the constructor site (Atheros) to get some OG drivers but I couldn't find the ones for my Dell Wireless 1515 n adaptater. Driver wise I've tried uninstalling my wireless thingy but to no sucess either.The problem is really strange, when I got to site to check my internet speed, the connexion appear as it should be then drops to 0 in matters of seconds. Windows does not detect any problem with my connection either at any time.I've also tried : installing no coin ; repairing firefox ; resetting router (who has a fix canal of transmission and is not on auto) ; turning off mac filter and differents securities on the Wifi (WPA and WPA2) I would have used resore point of windows but for some reason there was non available from before the bug arrived.Internet explorer won't even load some sites (straight up to "we can't load that page) whereas firefox still tries (and never suceed or barely in some cases)I'm in a house so security of the router is ok (and I got WPA and mac filter)I&#...

Hello,

A friend of mine just bought a HP Envy dv6-1148ca and the LAN and WIFI keeps dropping out.
He has re-installed W8 twice with the same results.

System specs:
W8 64bit
AMD A8-4500M
8GB RAM DDR3 800MHz
750 GB HDD
AMD Radeon HD 7640G

Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller - Network adapter, Driver v8.3.730.2012 Date:2012-07-30

Searches showed others with HP laptops having the same issues, no one seems to find an answer to this problem.

Secure sites seem to be more stable, but do drop out.
Some sites won't start at all, others start but drop out after 1-3 hours.

We have reset the Power Management to not 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' and still the same.
Other laptops on same network are having no problems, including other HP laptops, different models.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

A:HP Envy dv6 dropping the LAN and WIFI connection

You might be barking at the wrong tree. There might be an IP conflict. Try doing a power cycle on both modem and router. Unplug both. Wait for 30sec. Then plug the modem back in and wait till it completely boots up. Then plug the router back in. Let me know if that works.

Yet all WiFi signals (laptop, cells, and entertainment receiver) are working fine. After running trouble shooting, computer reports "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP Configuration. The only way I can fix this is to restart computer. This only fixes the issue for maybe an hour witch is inconvenient several times a day. Can someone offer a solution or other help?

Ever since I purched (in August 2015) my hp envy m6-p113dx I started having problems with wifi. The wifi connection kept dropping.  Because of this, I kept using an ethernet cable when I needed to connect to the internet.  I did ry the HP utiIities on my HP with no solution.  Today Oct 27, 2016.  I was frustrated enough finally try to find he problem.  Afer doing a search I found, going back to at least to 2013 forum problems with stable wifi.  The fix I found in the forum archive, which also works for me, was to TURN OFF BLUETOOTH. This is an out of the box Windows 10 system with all the latest drivers and updates.  I like HP products.  However, why does HP still have problems with a wifi/bluetooth combination?  So anyway, problem solved.  I want to thank all the people who take time to try and help other users. The reason I did not trouble shoot this sooner was that I have a desktop that is my primary computer.  I now will start using this system more.

Hello again Pragmata, It is good to hear from you again! Since the issue continues after you power down the notebook, I also recommend following the steps below to correct this issue: 1. Open DEVICE MANAGER  2. Open up NETWORK ADAPTERS  3. Right click on the WiFi Adapter for the pc and left click on PROPERTIES  4. Click on POWER MANAGEMENT at the top.  5. Remove the check mark beside : ALLOW THE COMPUTER TO TURN OFF THIS DEVICE TO SAVE POWER  6. Click OK  7. Close DEVICE MANAGER and test.     NOTE:  It may also be checked under the FAMILY CONTROLLER (eg. Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller which would be listed under the WiFi Card). If so, you could remove the check mark beside ALLOW THE COMPUTER TO TURN OFF THIS DEVICE TO SAVE POWER. Please re-post with the results of your troubleshooting, and I look forward to your reply!Regards

I have two laptops here at home that I run through a wireless router for my internet. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite series laptop running Windows Vista and is giving me absolutely no problems whatsoever. My wife's on the other hand is losing connection from the internet about every hour or so. It's not happening at any certain interval but sporadic. When this happens she has to use the Repair my Connection option several times to get the internet back working again. Her laptop is a Sony Vaio running Windows Vista 64 bit.

I wondered to start with if the 64 bit was the problem. I've updated my routers internal software. It's a Netgear wireless router. Anything else I need to add? Help?

I have an Asus x53e running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I recently replaced the HDD with an SDD and decided to start over with a fresh Windows installation. After installing Windows, I got all of the drivers for my laptop model off of the Asus website and installed them. Ever since upgrading to the SSD and reinstalling the OS, my WiFi connection has been dropping for a short time, about 10-15 seconds, every 10 minutes or so. It drops, waits 10-15 seconds, and then reconnects. This is super frustrating and has become very disruptive at work. I also have a desktop computer and an iPad, neither of which have this problem, so it seems to be a problem with the Windows laptop, rather than with my WiFi router. It is worth noting that I never had this problem with the laptop before upgrading to the SSD and reinstalling Windows. If anyone has any suggestions as to what might be causing this and how to fix it, I would really appreciate it.

Hi all,
I'm having an issue with my TP Link USB wifi adapter losing connectivity during video calls or extended downloads.
I have tried multiple recommended fixes; disable power options allowing sleep, uninstalled/reinstalled USB drivers, disabled USB legacy support in the BIOS etc but it still seem to get intermittent drops especially during high packet count streams like during video calls over google hangouts.

I'm currently running windows 10 pro with all recently patches, wifi router is a TP-LINK archer C7 and a TP link USB adapter running 5Ghz.

I've played around with multiple settings on the adapter to no avail.
Also, this seems to be the only device thats dropping, I have other devices; laptops, XBOne connected via wifi which have no issues. To resolve the loss, I just have to unplug/plug the adapter back in to bring the connection back up. This almost looks like an issue with the USB specifically since the signal is always 300Mb+ and the windows antenna doesnt show as disconnected, I just start loosing pings and I have to pull/plug the adapter.

PS: I didn't see any default template to posting system diag like I've seen on other forums in the distant past, so if that is a necessity, please shoot me a link to the instructions.
Thank you for your assistance.

Victor

Every few minutes, my laptop looses connectivity with my router which requires me to reconnect manually.  Other devices behave normally.Sometime, when I run the trouble-shoot function, this resets the adaptor, which will often resolve the issue for a temporary period of time. Lastly, despite attempting to make adjustments to the power settings, the laptop will go to sleep after just a couple of minutes.  This is even with the settings set to "Never".  Don't know if this is connected to the general issues regarding wifi connection. Appreciate some help.
