Two weeks ago I upgrade my F22 machine to F23 and the next day to F24. The Wifi signal is now very poor or weak. Dual Boot (windows 8) allows me to check the wifi strength in that OS and it's fine. So, I think that something is changed in the upgrade process or in the new(?) firmware. I think I need help to diagnose and solve this problem, so please, give me some clues.

My network Card: Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 3160

The firmware version is firmware=17.352738.0

Thanks in advance for any help.

You say the signal is weak, but is that just from looking at the icon? I think there were modifications to how that was reported a while back. Does the wireless still work fine in the same places it worked before?

Thanks for asking that. Indeed the signal is very weak: I need to stand very close to the routers: more than 2 meters and the Notebook lost the signal. Before update I use to stay connect on 8 or 9 meters away. This is true for three different access points where normally work).
