    Dropping connection Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2200




      I have Lenovo Y580 with Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2200. During the last 2 years, my wifi device worked sometimes better, sometimes worse, but it was never perfect. I tried many solutions but none of them worked, I feel hopeless.

      My OS is Windows 8.1


      Anyway, my problem is: I connect to a wifi network, connection is fine, everything works well and then, out of a sudden, the connection is dropped. However, the laptop automatically reconnects in a few seconds. The internet connection still doesn't work, the status is "Identifying.." then the connection is dropped again, then reconnect etc. etc. approximately 5 - 10 times (all of it automatically) until it works properly again.

      This happens 3 or 4 times per hour. It didn't use to be this bad, but I didn't install anything network related.

      This is happening with:

      • the newest drivers and the newest Intel PROSet software (18.2.0)
      • the drivers downloaded from Lenovo's website for my laptop (


      any suggestions?


      I turned on logging, which you can find attached. You can see many connections and disconnections in a short period of time.
