NitroPad X230 WiFi signal issues

I noticed that the WiFi signal of my NitroPad X230 is not that well. When other devices such Smartphones and other Notebooks got 100 % signal strength the Nitropad has around 85 %.

Is that a common Lenovo X230 problem with an Intel 802.11b/g/n 2200N Wifi module?
Does the Notebook support WPA3? In Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS I can select WPA3, but it wont establish a connection, so I have to switch to WPA2.


  1. I can’t tell much about WiFi issues unfortunately.
  2. WPA3 support depends on the driver support. Assuming both router and client support it, then probably the cause lie in the missing driver implementation in the kernel for this specific WiFi device.

Thanks for the answer. Then it seems to be an OS issue!
