    I have a problem with my Lenovo Y50-70.
    My wifi only works when I am close to the router. When I go to the living room (10 meters away) I lose my internet. It doesn't disconnect me I just can't connect to the internet. I have never seen anythibg like this before so I figured I'd ask someone with a little more experience. Does anyone know why this happens? Could it be the network card? Drivers?

    Could be antenna connections loose or corroded. If the wireless card is easily accessible through a small cover on the bottom of the laptop remove and replace the antenna leads.
