I've struggled through this problem for months but seems still failed.
Notebook: Lenovo X240-20AM with Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64-bit
Browser: Chrome (latest version)
Wireless Interface: Intel Wireless-N 7260
Driver Version: Intel Wireless 126.96.36.199 (16/04/2015)
4G Router: ZTE MF-91 802.11n only
Power Management: "Allow computer to disable this device for power saving" has already been disabled.
The wireless connection function properly with enterprise AP or home use broadband router (TP-LINK 1043ND with DD-WRT). The connection last forever and properly.
However, once I try to use the mobile 4G router, the connection could only at most online for around 90 minutes. Then, the bottom right icon still shown the connection is built. However, the browser could not connect to any website and only shows as 'Connecting...'. Same problem occurs while using tethering feature on my 4G mobile phone (LG Optimus G).
While the connection fail and revert to enterprise AP, the browser could access to internet website.
I've tried to disable and enable the wireless interface but still fail. The only way I could do is to reboot the notebook and the connection could be up again.
Grateful if Intel could investigate and resolve it.
Thanks a lot!
Quentin, I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with your system.
- I would like to know if you have tried using a previous driver version.
- It will be also helpful to know if it is working by Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) or static IP.
- Are you connecting to the 5 GHz or to the 2.4 GHz?
The IP address was got before the issue occurred and the address was not reset.
The "connecting" was shown up in browser's status bar (chrome). IE failed to connect as well.
Yes, all the connectivities were lost even for my Notes and network drives access.
The X240 failed similarly either by the 4g router or by the LG android phone. These two devices could connect to internet independently. No connection between the phone and the router.
For your further information, while the notebook fails to access internet, another device which use the 4g router could access to internet successfully.
According to your original post you haven't try the latest driver version which is 17.0.3. Could you give it a try? Please let me know the results.
