Lenovo IdeaPad Z580
Windows 8.1 x64
Intel Centrino N-2200
Netgear N600 Router
Issue is that the wireless connection comes and goes. I'm no more than 7 feet from my router. No other devices on the network have any issues at all, including 2 other laptops, a desktop, and Mac Mini all also connectiong via WiFi. Xbox One and a media server are wired.
When this happens, I can sometimes ping the router.. see screenshot:
Driver is of the latest version from Intel's website. Same with the BIOS from Lenovo's site. I can really only replace this card with one of the same because of a stupid whitelist of the wireless cards in the BIOS (dumb). I've tried toggling the "turn this device off to save power" checkbox on and off, no help there.
If I have to replace the card I will, just getting other opinions. FWIW, I upgraded to an SSD and completely reinstalled Windows, but no change to the behavior of the wireless card.
