power saving functions are already disabled, as suggested by you.
further, everything seems to be in order , as per the links provided by you.
since ,i had installed the software directly from intel ,so i uninstalled it and now have re-installed the software from lenovo .( will this make any difference?)
however, the software and driver version sare the same - v 18.20.0 & 18.20.09 respectively.
if this doesn't work, i will uninstall as suggested by- to a point that windows shows unknown device.
Or do you suggest , following this uninstallation instructions right away?
The difference between our drivers and Lenovo's is that Lenovo* designs the drivers specifically for your system as they have customized the wireless adapter for the specific system.
Try with Lenovo drivers first and if ncessary call them for further assistance. If for whatever reason they don't do what i expected you can try our drivers following the instructions. However, it is important that you know that since our drivers are generic, there are no guarantee that it will work.
thanks a lot for your assistance.
i got your point and will do as suggested.
