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.)

Hello everyone. I have recently update my Y50-70 to Windows 10 Pro. My issue is that when i connect with Wi-fi to the internet i have about 15mbps while when i connect with ethernet i have around 35 mbps. My modem is 2 meters away from me and when i run the test with my Android phone through the same page for internet speed i get around 30mbps. I have the Broadcom 802.11ac network card. When i install the driver for this card from lenovo ( the WLAN Driver (Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek) driver) i cannot connect to any Wifi and sometimes i got a screen freeze so i forced reboot. I have tried to unistall the driver from device manager and then reboot my pc but i got the same result in speedtest.I called lenovo and they told me to wait until the driver is udated again (last update July of 2016) but they didn't know if the driver will be updated soon. Any solutions?Sorry for the bad english.

Although I am connected to our wireless network on the Folio 13, there is no internet connection. I can, however, connect to the internet via Wifi on two other household laptops, both of them HP, so I believe the problem is with the Folio itself. I can also connect to other computers on the network on the Folio, but something is preventing it from getting on the internet. I can only get the internet via hardwired ethernet connection on the Folio. I have tried the following fixes, multiple times, without success: -Run the Windows troubleshooter for Internet/Network. It says the connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken. (But not on other wifi computers here--works fine.)-Reboot/Reset the modem.-Disable/Renable the wifi adapter (Intel Centrino Wireless N 1030)-Update wifi adapter driver (it says driver is up to date)-Uninstall/reinstall wifi adapter-Remove Wifi Network from list of available networks; reboot, add this network back in-Roll back all Windows updates from the past month-Searched self-help forums for a possible solution And yes, the wifi keyboard light is blue, not orange. Can someone help please?

Some forum members have reported a variety of Wifi issues with their G505 laptops. Their reports range from showing "Connection is limited", to Wifi connections dropping repeatedly, to being unable to make a Wifi connection at all. I combined multiple threads in order to assist forum members with troubleshooting solutions.
 
If your G505 was upgraded to Windows 8.0 or 8.1 and then lost connectivity, or you recently purchased a G505 running Windows 8.0 or 8.1 and are unable to connect, try following the instructions posted by Vikramsbox to restore the connection through the Lenovo Communications Utility.
 
For non-Windows 8.0 or 8.1 users, start troubleshooting with the basics:

The most recent WLAN, BIOS, and Power Management drivers from Lenovo can be downloaded here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-g-series-laptops/lenovo-g505-no...
It is also good practice to verify your Wifi is activated by following the instructions from Neokenchi.
Check Power Management settings to ensure your laptop isn't turning off the Wifi as noted by Dannyk1.
Check to see that Airplane Mode is set to OFF by following the instructions provided by Shiv_K.

 
After trying those steps, if you still experience a Wifi issue with your G505, other troubleshooting steps have been noted in this thread. This includes a whitelist of accepted replacement WLAN cards posted by Topmahof and a 3rd party driver which resolved wifi issues fo... Read more

Hi, I've just purchase a Lenovo Y700. I'd prefer to connect via ethernet to the business centre lan than via wifi. Unfortunately, when I switch the Y700 on, the ethernet connection lights flash for a few seconds, then a small red light below and to the left of the ethernet connector starts flashing and I seem to get forced over to wifi. If I go into network settings and disable the wifi, I still can't get the system to recognise the ethernet cable's plugged in. I've tested the cable and the lan socket on another PC. Both work. What do I need to do to fix this?

Hello Lenovo forum, I have a problem. NO WIFI (even after install drivers/reboot) Last week I bought this laptop: https://www.expert.nl/lenovo-ideapad-310-15isk-80sm017smhAll good, only thing I didn't like was Windows 10 OS.So I bought a serial for Windows 8.1, downloaded the .ISO on Microsoft website, installed it on USB-drive and installed a fresh Windows 8.1. So all CLEAN.Like always first thing is to start with install Drivers of course. So I downloaded Everest and put it on USB-stick. (Easy program to show which hardware)I already checked on (this computer>manage>device manager) and saw there same; Realtek pci family controller for Network.(Now I wanted to check it before posting this but since I just deleted all drivers 10 min. ago, since didn't work, I no see any visible.) But I'm pretty sure it was Realtek PCI Family Controller.So I downloaded the drivers from the Realtek website, and installed it. Rebooted, but still same problem.Anyway I saw also that Motherboard says: "Unknown" on Everest so I think I need drivers for that also but don't know which ones? Same for some USB drivers but I think this is included with Motherboard. The problem is that I just can't choose any Wifi.In Manager the only option is: Flight mode: On/Off (=Off)Bluetooth: On/Off (=Off) I don't see Wifi.I'm trying for hours + yesterday so hope find solution here, otherwise I will install Windows 7 and try that. Thanks in advance!

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'

Hi all, I am having intermittent problems with my internet connection through Wi-Fi since a windows 10 update around December 2016. My difficulty is that it seems totally sporadic with no pattern. One day I could work on my laptop for hours with no problems, but then last night yet again in a 1 hour session I had about 3 drop outs where I get the ?Connected, No Internet? message in the Wi-Fi window. So my Wi-Fi is still connected, but websites fail to load etc. In order to remedy the problem i have to disconnect from the wifi signal and connect again. I have tried many things to solve the problem with no luck. Contacted ISP as my problems seemed to start when I moved to fibre optic broadband. But they sent me a whole new router, this did not solve the problem. Also, I don?t seem to have a problem with Wi-Fi on any other device in my house.My router can transmit 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz so I split them out to their own SSIDs as the Z580 cannot receive 5Ghz. This slightly improved things but I still get the drop outs.I tried a clean install of Windows 10 and wiped my laptop. I thought the problem was solved by this as I didn?t get any drop outs for a week or so. But sure enough over the past couple of days the random drop outs have started again.Don?t really know what else to try, quite frustrating! Can anyone suggest any steps?

Hi, welcome to the forums.
 
On Lenovo every model has it support site with all the drivers available. Check the support site of the C40-05.
 
Give it a try updating the wireless drivers first to see if something improves. There are two depending on the model:
- Realtek 8723BE, 8192EE, 8821AE, 8188EE Combo Card WLAN Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Desktop
- Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Desktop
Check which one applies for your model.
 
Also, just in case check any other process running on Windows that may be trying to use the network bandwith.

A:USB internet connection on WIFI

Hi depakjan,

Glad to help, hope I can help you out. It sounds like you have a USB modem from a wireless provider such as Sprint, Verizon, Alltel, AT&T, or possibly Clear/Clearwire. Is that correct?

This is sometimes possible--depending on what software the wireless company gives you to work with. For instance, I have Clearwire here in Eau Claire, WI, and the Clearwire software actually disables the built-in functionality that Windows has that lets you bind ("bridge") two connections together, such as a USB modem and another connection, like your iPod touch.

Another thing to think about: I just signed up for Verizon mobile broadband Internet so I can have the Internet on the go. I found out something... Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, Alltel, and some other companies as well all limit your monthly usage on the Internet to 5GB. This is usually not a problem for one or two computers/devices connected to the Internet in a month for occasional or sometimes frequent web browsing. However, if you have an iPod touch, laptop, PSP, and more, all connected to that Internet connection, it will use that 5GB up pretty quick. Now, I don't know which company you're going through. If they don't have a limit, then great!!! Congratulations. But most companies are going to put that 5GB cap on your Internet. And, mind you, they seriously don't mind if you go over that 5GB!!! (You'll just have to pay a small fee of anywhere from $51.20 to $102.40 per MB that yo... Read more

All I have to do is disconnect from my router and reconnect and I'll have internet access again, but that gets irritating. Could this be a hardware issue on my laptop and how do I determine that?  I'm still under warranty for another 2 months.

Hello all!

I have wanted to do connect to two different networks simultaneously from a long time but I couldn't figure it out.

I have Windows XP Professional and a WiFi adapter as well as an ethernet adapter. In fact, I can use both the networks. My PC catches a wireless network and it is directly connected to my LAN through an Ethernet cable. It is connected to a Linksys router.

Now, what I wanted to do is connect and use both networks simultaneously. I can connect to both networks at the same time. However, I find that it, by default, I can access internet through the LAN. I wanted to increase the possible bandwidth by using two networks.Morevover, I wanted to assign certain applications access to the wireless network only. These applications take up lot of bandwidth and this affects the internet connection/speed of all PCs connected to the LAN.

Is this possible? Can we increase internet speed by using 2 networks? and also can we assign some apps exclusive access to one particular network?

Thank you,in advance, for your help.
 

A:WiFi and LAN dual internet connection

No.

You cannot group two dis-similar network topologies into a single virtual pipe. What you are proposing is to create a link aggregated group. Also, setting up LAGs or Etherchannels will not enhance your internet speeds. For the general populus, you will never have an internet connection faster than your LAN.

I don't know how your network is set up or what your applications are doing. But if an application is causing LAN performance issues through out the network, you have a configuration/design problem.

I have spent the last 4 days trying to get my WiFi to connect to the Internet and am ready to throw the computer and all its additional equipment out of the window!

Amongst a collection of other laptops and a desktop, running different systems - Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 - I have an old Acer Aspire 3000, running Windows XP Pro SP3. I use it mainly for midi file work and as a host for Visual Studio 2005 which I keep for maintenance of some programs, written many years ago, but still in use by some of my friends and for which I require frequent searches on the Internet. Just recently, for no apparent reason, the WiFi on this laptop suddenly stopped working. I have been using an Edimax EW-7318Usg wireless adapter, which has never given any trouble in the past, to connect with my home network through a router/modem supplied by my ISP.

Since every other computer, iPhone, iPad and Kindle connects to the same network and works perfectly, I have to assume that there is no problem with that router. Also, the problem laptop connects perfectly via the ethernet cable. It just won't work on WiFi alone!

I have checked my wireless connections setup, including TCP/IP, and can find no problem devices in Device manager.

Have you tried using another adapter? Or tried using the adapter on another computer? Just to rule out if the adapter is bad.

Hi Good Folks,

After I sw on the notebook this automatically try to connect to the router for accessing to the net, but instead gives me a message about not willing to connect via unsecured device.
So any idea what can I do for the good connection please?

My notebook working with XP and proper.

Hey.
I'll jump straight to my problem to keep things short.
I seem unable to use my WiFi connectivity on my notebook. By this I mean that I cannot surf the internet or download anything using download managers <IDM and uTorrent>.
However, strange as it may be, Windows is able to connect to the microsoft update servers and carry on the Windows updates. So I guess it's not a driver problem.

I started experiencing problems with network connectivity a few days back, when my notebook would automatically disconnect from the network when my dad would connect on his notebook. I tried setting the IPv4 IP and DNS manually (thinking it might be a network conflict?) but that didn't solve the issue.

Anyways. Now I CAN connect to the internet while I'm surfing the net on dad's notebook. That is, it shows it is connected to the network and windows updates work fine. But the main problem still persists, dad's notebook switched on or not.

I haven't tried a wired connection yet - I don't have an ethernet cable. .__.

My drivers are up-to-date.

Extra info, might be unnecessary:
I've tried Google Chrome, Firefox 4, IE9.

Chrome says: Error 137 (net::ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED): Unknown error.

uTorrent says it has a "listen error" and asks me to change the listen port.

I can PING update.msdn.com from CMD.
I can PING Google, gmail.com, wikipedia.com, yahoo.com, youtube.com.
I can PING 192.168.1.3 (dad's laptop)

BUT I CANNOT OPEN THE SITES IN MY WEB B... Read more

Whenever I turn on my laptop, my wifi works most of the time, but sometimes, it keeps on disconnecting the internet, then automatically connect again. Sometimes, it is only "Local Only" then switches to Local and Internet. It keeps on doing this everytime!

VeasnaYim,
Welcome to Seven Forums!

First off, check to see if your internet indicator light on your router is on. If it is not, then it is the router that needs to be reconfigured. Otherwise, disconnect and reconnect to the router and see if that helps.

Hi everyone,
I'm having this problem with the WiFi (which I set up in 2011) at my grandfather's. I googled quite a bit for this problem and never found a solution. I've had the issues for quite some time, but as I usually only stayed there for a couple of days the last couple of times anyway, I didn't spend too much time fixing it. Now I'll be taking care of him for a week, and I'm here for a total of almost 2 weeks. The Internet connection is very poor - sometimes, web pages will load (but not as quickly as they should), sometimes they will load after about 1 minute, sometimes they will load about halfway and just not go any further, and sometimes page loading just gets stuck at the beginning. There is never any message such as "the server timed out" of "the server could not be found". The problem only happens on my computer (Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Tablet with Intel Advanced-N 6205) - I've seen at least 10 devices at various times using the Internet without any issues, including his laptop (thank goodness), and my computer doesn't have this issue with any other wifi network (the router is a Tenda single band Wireless-N W268R). I don't have the problem when I connect via ethernet, but the ethernet connection is only available upstairs, and I want to be able to stay downstairs when I need Internet on my computer, because he can barely make it up the stairs. I can also access the router settings etc. without any issues. Here is what I've tried (although it co... Read more

A:Poor Internet connection over WiFi

Hi trainman, Welcome to Seven forums.

Try to upgrade the router's and your NIC firmware.

1- Change wireless router encryption to WEP, rather than WPA. (I understand switching to WPA2 could also help with some compatibility issues...)

2- Uninstall router management software that came with router (e.g. D-Link router comes with a program called “Network Magic”. It might interfere with the Windows-7 wireless software that is already installed)

3- Change wireless adapter settings: In "Properties", unclick "TCP/IPv6"

4- Change wireless adapter settings: In "Properties/Configure", disabled Ad Hoc QoS Mode.

5- Change wireless adapter settings: In "Properties/Configure", changed Wireless Mode to 802.11g

6- In Control Panel/Power Options: Change advanced power settings... Wireless adapter settings: set to Maximum Performance

I've been having trouble with my internet connection for the past few days. It seems to be a battle between my router and modem, but my question is about the sidebar on windows 8. When I click on the internet connection icon (?) in the lower right hand corner, the sidebar appears, showing the internet connectivity. My PC is wired to the router and modem, so should I need to connect to my router listed under the WiFi listing? Can I be wired and wireless at the same time? And if so, will it cause problems?

A:Internet Connection - WiFi & Wired?

If you are plugged in with a cable and connected wirelessly then Windows will default to the faster connection which is usually the wired one. As soon as you unplug the cable then the wireless connection will be the connection you are using. No problems with that at all.
