    Wifi Issues - Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Lenovo Laptop

    TheRoyalKetchup

      Hello everyone.  I would hate to bring back a thread that's been dead for two years that's provided me with no solution so I'm starting this in hopes of getting help.

       

      My wifi has been unstable and inconsistent for about a year now.  It's gone through three different Comcast Xfinity routers, 2 different Intel wifi cards and a USB Asus wifi stick.  It's gone through Windows 8, 8.1 and now 10.  I've tried different combinations of all of these variables and the problem always remains.  My wifi randomly drops or becomes painfully slow for seemingly no reason.  Usually when I disconnect and reconnect to the internet things will run smoothly for a matter of minutes.  But then the problems start up again.  If it matters, things usually run fine when I have 3-4 bars of signal strength.  When it gets to the full 5 I know trouble is right around the corner.  I should not be getting the full 5 bars.

       

      I run a Lenovo Y500 laptop with an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 card.  I'm in a different room from my Comcast Xfinity router.  A different laptop as well as my iPhone perform flawlessly in the same room, but this Lenovo laptop just has problems.  I've tried all of the usual tricks like changing router channels, doing just AES security, low roaming, resetting the router, updating drivers, and so on.  Is there nothing I can do which will prevent me from smashing this expensive laptop in a fit of rage?

       

      Thanks in advance.
