Wifi is disconnecting Open a Terminal with Ctrl + Alt + T and enter sudo su echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf update-initramfs -u reboot You can try to use "11n_disable=8" to gain more speed as suggested in a comment. For me it didn't work as my wifi is unstable with "11n_disable=8" but your mileage may vary. I ...

Okey, so I have found the optimal solution for my problem. On the Lenovo y50 there seams to be some kind of thermal problem on Ubuntu 14.10. I can only speculate but I believe this is due to having both the Nvidia card and intelHD running at the same time causing overheating. You can disable the eGPU by going into the Y50 bios. I find this will improve ...
