my problem :
every time i close the lid, the WiFi speed and signal strength get lower and then disconnected.
I tried many solutions but nothing helped me solving this problem
what i have done since yet
1- formatting windows
2-installed another version of windows 7/8
3- resetting the windows which deleted all partitions
4- installing 3 or 4 different drivers
5- uninstalled the current driver and let windows detect drivers
6- factory reset of bios

the laptop get only disconnected when i close the lid. but if i keep the lid open it never get disconnected or lose signal strength.
also if i keep the lid open and turn off the display i don't get disconnected

Re: closing the lid

- What are the settings for the effect of closing the lid in the energy settings in Control Panel?
- If you open the lid again, is the connection restored?

TRUE!

The WiFi antenna is in the lid so closing the lid changes the antenna performance so much that you see what happens.

It's not a bug, it's not a software setting.
