    I have a T450 running Windows 10. I purchased it less than a year ago. I recently upgraded my home router to an apple airport extreme. My computer shows a strong signal yet can't connect to the main network. Somehow it can connect to a guest network on the same account but it is very slow. I believe there may be some issue with the AC7625 wireless card working with the apple product as I've seen in other forums. Has anyone experienced this or have any ideas on how to fix? Thanks.



    My computer worked fine on my pervious linksys router.

    Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from Lenovo's web site.

    I have the newest Lenovo drivers. Intel has newer drivers but they advise you use your laptop manufacturer's drivers.

    I agree to (almost always) use the PC manufacturer's wireless driver. However, since you are having a problem it does not hurt to give the Intel driver a try. Roll back if it doesn't help significantly. And visit the Lenovo site weekly to look for an update.
