I HAVE A LENOVO Y50/70 IT is a megamachine. Too Expensive to have these problems.Since the beginning i've had problems with the wifi dropping every 30 seconds making it impossible to do much on it. I have looked it up and this is common problem with Lenovo. I also had the same issue with the other Lenovo I bought the same day. I read something about disabling and then re enabling the network adapter also something about changing the setting of the advanced properties of the network adapter but the specific changes recommended I did not have with my adapter. I did it with my other Lenovo which was a yoga2 and I believe it worked. I can't get anything to work permanently for my y50/70. I I even called Lenovo and they had me disable and then enable network adapter and the reboot. It worked for an hour and then the problems creeped up again Does anyone know of a permanent solution for this. I'm desperate to fix this my adapter is a Broadcom 802.11ac BCM4352 Network Adapter. HERE IS SOME SCREEN SHOTS

I suggest you buy a USB wifi adapter and bypass the problem. It should not cost more than $25.


I assume you can prove that the problem is not caused by your home wifi connection.

Good luck
