    I got a new Lenovo IdePad Z570 for Christmas and it's brilliant. However, it has internet connection problems.

    Even though I sit in the same room where the router is, sometimes Lenovo just refuses to connect with the internet and when it does, the connection just stops after a couple of minutes.
    Also, when I take it upstairs, even though it says that the signal strength is excellent, it doesn't connect.

    Is there anything I could do with it or should I just call Lenovo and give the laptop back to them, so that they can repair it?

    Thanks for help.

    Yeah, it works fine when I connect it to the router using a cable.

    Download and install InSSIDer on your laptop. Then run it and it will show you a map of the routers and what channels they are using in your immediate vicinity.(including your own).
