Q: Y700 wifi disconnected for a while if Camera turn'...

Hello everyone.I just bought Lenovo Y700-15isk 80nv007jid for 6 days.I got some issue from the first day.The problems is:1. The wifi signal strength is poor (compare to my phone and another laptop)2. If I call using skype, the wifi disconnected for a while and not detect any wifi signal at all and so it's impossible to call through skype(the wifi is still accessible from other devices). After trying to update driver and find the fault, I found that the wifi disconnected every time I access the camera. My wifi adapter is Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 Please help.

Hi, so I am running windows 7 x64 on a Y700 ideapad. I can't figure out how to turn off my wifi antenna. Looking at the keyboard I see the plane icon which normally means airplane mode. I want my wifi radio off and just use my lan line wire connection.  Regardless if I press FN+airplane, in the the black window that pops up it says "first switch on the wireless device" which makes no sense. My wifi radio is on currently all drivers are upto date.

A:Y700 - Turn off Wifi from Keyboard - Windows 7

I do not know why the airplane mode is saying to "first turn on the wireless device", but you can enable/disable the WiFi adapater by following the steps outlined in the link below.   Normally the Airplane mode is the on/off for the WiFi radio,m but it does not disable the card itself, while the steps linked below will. How to turn wireless connectivity on or off in Windows 7http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/network-wifi/how-to-turn-wireless-connectivity-on-or-off-in-window...  Good Luck,

I have a 1. Year old HP pavilion g6 laptop with AMD APU. since, about a month back, my wifi has been showing problems. The laptop would randomly, at times, disconnect from the wifi and show no wifi networks. Sometimes it would reconnect automatically and at other times it won't. I'd have to either restart or reset the network adapter to get connected again. Also, if I change some router settings like SSID or channel it's broadcasting on or the wifi type (b/g/n) it gets reconnected
I know it is not a problem with my router as I havE other devices on the network and they work fine. I have tried updating and reinstalling all drivers, updated bios, changed the power management settings. I also read that in some network card the Bluetooth causes problems so I even disabled Bluetooth via device manager but still the problem occurs. It doesn't occur frequently but maybe once every 5-6hrs.(no fixed interval, sometimes it happens just after switching on)

Hey Prathamesh
You could try restoring your PC to a point in time where you pc did not do this using system restore and see if this solves your problem.

Yesterday my son bought a Y700.  It wouldn't connect to our wifi unless it was literally within 5' of the router. We returned it to Best Buy today and exchanged it for a new one.  The customer service rep said it was probably a bad wireless card. We got the new one home and the same problem happens.  It will start to connect, then lose the connection.  Or not make any connection at all.  Plus, there's a warning on the hardware scan, "Local Connection Test....warning." I doubt it's a problem with our internet connection or router, because people use iPhones and other laptops in the house and don't have any problems wtih connections. If there's not a simple solution, we're just gonna give up on the whole Lenovo laptop idea.

Hello! I've had my Y700 for half a year already, and I really love it, except for one very annoying problem. The wireless connection is very unstable. It often drops out, or stays connected, without having any actual connectivity. I replaced the router at home, I keep testing it with two other PCs and a smartphone, and no other device has any issues. I encounter the same problem, when I try to use other WiFi networks, out of my home - I can never rely on the laptop to have a stable internet connection, because it would randomly drop the connection, or stay connected, but lose all connectivity (Chrome just stays on "Resolving host..." and then says there is no internet connection). Does anybody have similar issues and a fix, or at least some suggestions? They would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Hi atulrohatgi , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
You may try to check on device manager , click on the + sign in network adapter and right click on the wireless card for the properties. 
 
Under power management tab , uncheck box saying "Allow the computer toturn off device to save power" , navigate on the advance tab , set highest on roaming aggressiveness / roaming tendency .
Restart and check how it goes.

hi guys,

I just noticed that my Ethernet Connection gets disconnected when my PC
turns off the display. When I mouse to get it back on I see the red X on the Ethernet connection for like half second. This not with sleep or hibernation, I just have turn screen off after 3 minutes, this is on AC mode, which is quite annoying, I already unticked these boxes, see attachments.

in power settings of my current plan I have, see attach.

it seems that if the PC is downloading something actively when screen goes off, it stays on instead.

is there anything else I can change?

When I connect via Wifi, the connection shows 5 bars and no disconnections to the wifi router. But the Internet constantly get's disconnected. It acts the same way on other wifi routers. Something about the hardware in HP laptop is disconnecting the internet.

What I've done so far -

Still the same problem
2. I'm due to format and re-install OS

Any ideas outside of the wifi card, are there other services running that would manage the internet connection?

Hello,

I have a weird problem with the wifi I connect to in my office studio.

I keep getting disconnected =(

I know my connection is stable because the wifi signal icon in my taskbar (I am running windows 8) does not have the exclamation point and I do not have the same problem with my other desktop and ipad connected to the same router.
I do a quick fix by disconnecting and reconnecting again and this solves the problem.

I have recently changed ISPs and I had the same problem for both of them.

I also bring my laptop home from work and I do not have the problem at home. Only in the studio and only on my laptop.

I am running Windows 8.1 on an Asus X550Z notebook.

Hope you guys can help!

Thanks so much in advance!

Hi, I have a Toshiba laptop (p-750) and a new TP-link TL-WR1043ND router.
The router works fine with my smartphone and Sony PlayStation but my laptop is getting disconnected all the time.

HELP.....

Thanks guys.
 

A:My Toshiba laptop gets disconnected from wifi

how is your laptop connected to the router - wireless or cable
how often are you getting disconnected

we need to see some further information - quite a long post - but some simple tests, just the explanation is long

Is this the only PC that disconnects - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

if you are connected by wireless, please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the separate modem, the router is a TP-link TL-WR1043ND

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the TP-link TL-WR1043ND router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc

Internet in my PC would get disconnected, like not fully disconnected but there will be a /!\ yellow exclamation on the internet icon, not a red X. WiFi on other devices would be working. I use a cable to connect router to PC.

This would happen a few times a day or sometimes it doesn't happen in a day. I would take out the cable from the WiFi router and plug it back and the internet will then work fine.

Why does this happen?

Hi, I bought a Lenovo U410 sometime in July 2012 (bought it back home in Malaysia). About a week or two after I bought it, the laptop sleeve cover came off, causing the laptop to fall to the floor. But fortunately, other than a small dent (pictured) at one corner of the laptop, everything seems to work okay. [well, if you plug in an earphone, only the right side would play but I'm not too concerned about that] I've enjoyed using the laptop, everything works fine & easy for me. I use it mainly for my studies (I'm a rising junior in Madison) and occassionally some photos & video processing. Other than The Sims, I never actually used my laptop for 'gaming' stuff (was planning to soon though). But recently, in the past few months, I realized that there's something wrong with the laptop. It connects to WiFi just fine and everything, but whenever I connect my external hard drive to my laptop, my Wifi would disconnect automatically & wouldn't reconnect until I remove the hard drive. This happen even when I connect a USB port to the laptop, but doesn't happen when I connect a small USB pendrive or my phone (Samsung Note 4) or a bluetooth speaker. Not sure what's the problem with it, and I'm a noob when it comes to things like this, so I would really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance!

Hi syazanazura,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The Laptop maybe having power issue since the drop.
    You can try opening 
        Control Panel / Hardware and sound / Power Options / Change plan settings on selected power plan / Change Advanced power Settings
       Now look for the Wireless Adapter Settings Make sure not to use the scroll but use the scrollbar to the right
       Open the Wireless adapter setting and make sure that both plugged in and on Battery are set to Maximum Performance.
   
 
Let me know if this works for you

Hey
So I'm kinda freaking out about this because this is my dad's really expensive touchscreen laptop that's broken. Earlier I was using it; I had four tabs open on chrome (one playing music) and had just started downloading a reliable copy of a movie. There is no way that the download could have had bugs, I checked thorough like fifty of the comments and all praised it on being a clean, high definition copy. I was about to download something else (again with shining reviews) and the computer just started freaking out.

At this point I had chrome open (four tabs still), utorrent, and another window on the file i was downloading (so again utorrent).

To begin with the computer froze, still playing the music, so I pressed start and nothing happened,when it unfroze it went into the blank start screen. I pressed start again and eventually the background appeared.long story short it kept doing that with the music still playing so I turned it off.

When I turned it on again it spent a few minutes downloading updates. After that was done i opened chrome only to find that there was no Internet connection. Usually it connects right off the bat. I opened networks and this is what I see:

Attachment 64487

Okay so the off button was, and is grey, it does not react to me clicking on it, nor does it do anything.

Please help me and please do it now. My father with kill me if I've broken this.

A:WIFI Permanently Disconnected After Computer Crashed. Help

No need to post Twice, I would check device manager I'm betting that our WiFi driver is corrupted you can uninstall it from Device manager then refresh and see if the new driver doesn't work better for you. If that doesn't work you'll need to go to manufactures support web site and download the latest driver for your notebook and install that.

I recently bought an Acer Aspire laptop (18.4" monitor). I am having difficulty connecting to the internet with this computer, and perhaps someone here can help me out. Here is some information:

Network Adapter: WiFi Link 5100 AGN
Router: Verizon Wireless (Model Name: MI424-WR)

Wireless network connections are detected, and the connection is "strong". However, when I try to connect, it always fails. When I go to the command prompt, and type "ipconfig" I see "Media Disconnected". I know there is a wireless button on the Acer's, but this is automatically turned on during startup, so I know this is not the problem. For some reason, my router is just not connecting to my network adapter, and I am unsure how to resolve this problem. Thanks for any insight of this issue!

A:Media Disconnected (WiFi Link 5100 AGN)

Maybe perhaps my wireless router is just not compatible with a Windows 7 64-bit system...

Hi

I have configured ad-hoc network for internet sharing from my PC. Normally I start it by
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
As I noticed the hotspot is automatically turned off when I turn off WiFi adapter. So I have two questions:

How do I turn on WiFi by command line, so that I can control it from various commandline scripts?
How do I configure the script for WiFi for autostarting hotspot whenever WiFi is turned on?

netsh wlan ...

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Connectify pro has an auto start option that does this but it's a paid version, connectify lite is free but I'm not sure if has auto start.

Hi, I've just purchase a Lenovo Y700. I'd prefer to connect via ethernet to the business centre lan than via wifi. Unfortunately, when I switch the Y700 on, the ethernet connection lights flash for a few seconds, then a small red light below and to the left of the ethernet connector starts flashing and I seem to get forced over to wifi. If I go into network settings and disable the wifi, I still can't get the system to recognise the ethernet cable's plugged in. I've tested the cable and the lan socket on another PC. Both work. What do I need to do to fix this?

I'm using windows 8 on my Lenovo G400. It's CPU is intel Core i3 2.4Ghz, RAM 2 GB. Recently my laptop becomes disconnected from Wifi frequently. At first I thought its my wifi connection problem, but found my other laptops and mobile devices are connected to wifi and internet is working well. I checked some post from here asking solution for similar problems and according to them I changed my power option to high performance. However, while checking my network adaptor's driver i found the findings in the picture. Please let me know what to do to get rid of this problem. Thanks in advance

Hey all,

Happy holidays!

I don't know what has triggered my PC to do this but it's driving me up the walls.

After every reboot or a fresh start, my Win8.1 PC always has its WiFi disconnected. It then takes me 2-3 tries to connect to my home WiFi as it returns a simple "couldn't connect to network" error message. I tried re-installing the drivers but that hasn't helped.

The last software that could have triggered is my VPN software. But the problem started to happen a few days AFTER I installed the VPN. The problem doesn't go away even if I disable the VPN's TAP driver. I cannot uninstall my VPN as I need it almost daily.

I hope there is a solution to it. It's so frustrating.

The camera stops working while using in an application and then will not turn off (the indicator light stays on) even after closing apps.  I know that it is not just the light because if I open a camera using another application after closing the first, it will indicate the camera is in use by another program.  The only way to fix it is to uninstall the camera from the device manager, reboot the machine and then I can again use the camera via Skype or the modern camera app for a limited time before it again stops working. This must be an Acer issue because it is not the device driver and nothing on Windows Update indicating an OS issue.  I asked support to help and thy said that they can fix it for $100 one time incident charge (no warranty).  No thanks - all I want is the software fix to install myself.   Windows 8.1 64-bit4GB RAMIntel Pentium CPU2127U @ 1.90GHz Any guidance is most appreciated.

Georgee,
 
If you have not always had this problem and it just started occurring I would recommend you perform a system restore to when it was working correctly and go forward from there.
 
If the issue has occurred from day one, you can attempt to perform a refresh to see if that fixes it, there might be some software issues present.

Hi. Where can I change the property settings for an integrated camera? Specifically, where can I change the autofocus property?

I recently started using the camera built into my notebook (I don't have any other cameras). Sometimes the camera zooms in and out automatically. I'm told I can fix this by turning off autofocus. However, I can't find such a setting.

I opened Control Panel - View scanners and cameras. But that just gives me an empty window (see attachment). If I click "Scan Profiles", I get an error "No scanners were detected....". The Refresh button does nothing and the Add Device button is for adding a not-integrated device.

If I go to Control Panel - Devices and Printers, there is nothing camera related there. I don't know where else to look. Thanks for your help.


(Not sure if this is the right subforum. Sorry if it isn't.)

A:Turn off autofocus on integrated camera

The webcam settings should be available through a systray icon.
A right-click or double-click on that icon should lead you to video
settings where you would find an option to disable autofocus.

Typically, such settings would also be available thru the Start >
Programs menu.

In all operating systems up to Vista, the flash drive's "active" light turns off when I go through the disconnect procedure; but, in Vista, it doesn't. I have traditionally used this as part of my explanation to others (and a convenience to myself) about when to not to remove the flash drive from its USB port.

This is a problem common to all Vista systems I've seen.

Why does the light not turn off in Vista?

And, is there an easy way to correct this?

Additional information: I have eliminated this problem being hardware-related. I have loaded Vista onto one of my systems here that previously had Windows 2000, then XP on it and it was only with the loading of Vista that the problem developed on this system. Just to be absolutely sure, I did a restore of a previous image of Windows 2000 and the problem went away again. I put Vista back on and the problem came back. So, this is strictly a Vista problem.

Logitech makes complex cameras and software drivers. I know of no product they have that is just for Apple, but if they provide no support for Windows, you most likely would have to write a driver for it to get it to run on Windows. The time/efficiency graph for that would be discouraging.

Get a new cam. I have an excellent one I got for less than $10 (not a Logitech, but my regular Logitech is clearer and works better generally than the Pro version I have).

Click start and type "ncpa.cpl" and hit enter (or you can go to My Documents and type in the address bar "ncpa.cpl" and hit enter) then right click on Wi-Fi or your internet and click enable. Do not know if this will work but you can give it a try.

I have a netbook/notebook with some keys do not work anymore. I am now using an external keyboard but it does not funtion exactly as the built in keyboard. Using the built in key, I can turn some features like turning on the wifi by pressing fn keys and F8. But with the external keyboard, it does not work. I cannot turn on WIFI anymore or any other feature that this netbook has.
 
I am considering replacing the built-in keyboard but do not have budget as of the moment. I tried google but it did not help.
I have U135DX, I believe, it's the model number. It's MSI, running windows 7 starter. These are the information. I hope that will help.
 

A:How do I turn on WIFI without the keyboard.

Some wireless adapters allow you to enable/disable radio in their advanced settings but I am not sure if this would work for a wireless adapter disabled via the keyboard.
 
You could disable the wireless adapter you have and purchase a USB wireless adapter like this.
