    I fixed most of my Wi-Fi issues today by updating bios. I hadn't before because it said that the current version and the one I was trying to update to were the same. Today, I thought, "What the heck? It won't hurt anything." After the subsequent reboot, Wi-Fi works awesomely.

    Maybe it could work for you too?

    The one I downloaded was the same version as what I already had... But it seems to have fixed the problem anyway.
