Intel 6235 sudden performance loss

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I own a Y400 and modded the BIOS like 1-2 months ago to change the crappy wireless card (intel 2230) to an Intel 6235, since then everything related to wifi has been working like a charm, but suddendly 2 days ago, when I was getting full signal from my modem, I started to get only 3-4 bars and even sometimes 2 bars though I'm only a few feets away from it. Sometimes I'm able to get full signal but it doesn't last too long until it gets dropped to 4 bars. Also when it was working fine the wifi was able to discover 15+ wifi networks on my apartment, now it can only find 4 if I'm lucky. The bad thing is that I'm not able to download as fast as it used to be.

I've tried anything I've been able to do, from flashing back the 2.02 modded BIOS, to switching the position of the notebook's antennas, but nothing works...

Do you guys have experienced something like this with your wifi cards?

Yep, my phone picks up all the signal, same with my friend's notebook. I wouldn't blame my modem, I'm pretty sure it's my Y400 the one that has the problem. It's weird, sometimes I get the full signal but drops to 1 or 2 after a few seconds, I really don't know what to do.
