I have just installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my Lenovo y510p (I am dual booting windows 8.1 and Ubuntu). I am having trouble getting good wifi speeds when I use Ubuntu. Besides, the connection is unstable and would be dropped once in a while, prompting me to re-enter the wifi password. I don't have these issues when I am on Windows 8.1.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
