        Bought a new Dell Vostro 5460 yesterday. Facing the same problem! Tried most of the things mentioned here but problem still persists.

         

        Intel, please fix this issue. A nice laptop with frequently interrupting connection accounts to be useless.

         

        Hope to see the solution soon.

          Hi - new here...   I have (had?) the same problem with the 2230 on my hp Ultrabook but I got a push update from hp today for the driver from 15.8.0.5 to 15.10.0.11

          Time will tell if it improves things - I'll keep you informed.

              My god Intel has to be the most incompetent Company in recent ages. How the hel can you screw millions of customers with those problems??? It's been more than a year since ou Heard about the problem and your Q3 fix did absolutely NOTHING and now you plan a new one for Q4 what is so hard to get right???

               

              I have had Broadcom NICs and Atheros NICs none of them stuggled like these pieces of ****(2230, 7260 AC)

               

              Get your **** together Intel seriously, you lose customers on such small problems that I don't even know if I have to laught or cry

                Don't include the 7260 on your ****list of struggling Wi-Fi adapter. I run the 7260 on a Sandy Bridge HM65 laptop and I get excellent range, signal, link speed and throughput at home (2.4 GHz) or at campus WiFi (5 GHz). I upgraded from a Centrino  Wireless-N 1000 BTW which keeps disconnecting me from my campus WiFi when there are a lot of nearby clients connected to the router / access point especially at the library.

                  Do a search on these forums and you will see why included my 7260 into this, the problem exists on that NIC too, now the thing is that maybe you got a good combination between having a perfect 7260 and a compatible router but my 7260 and Asus AC router is NOT coping well at ALL!

                  You could provide us with some help on what to do to get better speed. As of right now my 7260 is only getting 15mbit/s conneced to an Asus AC router with my 200mbit/s Connection and that is not acceptable.

                   

                  My 2230 however just became functional after posting the comment I have been testing in hours now and I may have found a good solution - not the best but a good one.

                   

                  As a stresstest I streamed 2 high bitrate 1080p videos from Gamersyde(super high quality game trailers) simultaneously and my bandwidth was looked on 60-80mbit/s all the way through which is a pretty good score for the 2230.

                   

                  Settings that were applied:

                   

                  IPv6 was disabled

                  802.11n channel width for band 2.4Ghz =  Auto

                  802.11n mode = Enabled

                  Ad hoc Channel 802.11b/g = 11

                  Ad Hoc QoS mode = Wmm enabled(in router too)

                  ARP Offload for WoWLAN = Enabled

                  Bluetooth AMP = Can be disabled or enabled doesn't really make a difference in my case(unless it is used I advice you to disable)

                  Fat Channel Intolerant = Disabled

                  GTK Rekeying for WoWLAN = Enabled

                  Mixed mode Protection = RTS/CTS Enabled

                  NS Offload for WoWLAN = Enabled

                  Roaming aggresiveness = 4/5

                  Sleep on WoWLAN Disconnect = Disabled

                  Transmit Power = 5 highest

                  Wireless Mode 3 802.11b/g

                   

                  So I don't know if these will work for others but this is actually the first time since I bought my new Envy 15 that I have had good speeds 50-80mbit/s

                   

                  Driver version used is 15.9.0.5 because that is the one that works best on my laptop. The ms drivers wasn't as good as it was on others in the forums - the Connection kept dropping out.

                  Power management options should all be set to never turn the device off or let it sleep that is crucial in this.

                    I am sure I've went through these. What really baffles me is the fact, that there is a problem, happening in laptops being sold right now and nobody cares! The usual response from Intel is "try to change something on your router" following by "Next driver maybe helps". Over and over again. This is unacceptable. Tonight I'll test it with Ubuntu, I've read somewhere that under LInux the NIC works as it is supposed to do. Connecting to 802.11N router standing behind 12cm thick paper wall with power at best at 2bars is too bad.

                      After running the setup for the new driver, while checking the driver version it still states: 15.10.0.11. Have I done something wrong?

                       

                      Thanks in advance.

                        The driver setup includes multiple versions of drivers for their Wi-Fi cards. Even though the driver setup states 16.1.3, the actual drivers that are installed for the Centrino Series is 15.10 while for the 7260 series with the same driver setup installation file will show 16.1.3.1

                          try the following under Windows go to Control Panel, Network and Internet, Network and Sharing Center, left click on Change adapter settings. Look at the name of your wireless card for my  wifi card: Intel (R) Centrino (R) Wireless-N 2230... etc.. Right click on Right click on it, properties, then look for Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Click above Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Click it, then click Properties (right to uninstall). Top of Form 1


                          Click down on the Advanced ..., and then select WINS top right. Once this is done uncheck the box: Enable LMHOSTS lookup and check Disable NetBIOS over TCP / IP, confirm by clicking OK, and then restart the computer to confirm considered. let me know and tell me would this give your side.

                              Hi,

                               

                              I have a Lenovo P500, which I just purchased a few weeks ago. While on my University's WIFI, my connection drops constantly, pretty much every 30seconds to 5 mins. If I actually AM connected, it is wildly slow. However, I never have this problem at home. I checked the message boards for Lenovo and saw advice to just update the driver (Intel Centrino 2230n, as stated in the subject), which did not help. The fact that it did not drop at home, but did at school lead me to think, its not the computer but the Intel Centrino adapter that is the issue.

                               

                              I then came here to see if anyone else was having this issue with the N2230 and I am both happy I know what the issue is, and disgusted that it has been OVER A YEAR AND THIS IS STILL A PROBLEM!!

                               

                              What the heck Intel. How about some sort of workable solution? Even if includes installing a competitors network adapter(if it doesnt void warranty), you should at least suggest it. Do the right thing. I'll happily make sure I'll never buy an intel product again.

                               

                              Thank you!

                                I seem to be missing something here.  The issue is being experienced on both windows 7 and windows 8, yet the new driver is only for windows 8?

                                 

                                I have tried to solve this issue on win 7/8 as it is experienced on both.

                                 

                                No dice.

                                 

                                Please do something... this is freaking ridiculous.

                                  Ok, so I see that intel have putted new drivers for 2230, finally. Got rid of the old ones, uninstalled the entire software for WiFi, installed new one, everything was goin good... but when i checked the driver details, it says that 2230 is still using the 15.10.3.2.... EVEN tho' i used the software detection from the intel site, which told me that newest one 16.1.5 is on. Soooooo... eaither the drivers dont work, or I did something wrong, still havin' the connection dropouts problem, still ******, still can't play normally. HELP!

                                    Indeed, Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software version 16.1.5 has been released.

                                    Phreaq22, I am sorry you continue to experience the same connection issue; let’s keep in mind there are other causes for connection drops as mentioned here. The driver version you provided (15.10.3.2) is expected for Windows* 8.
