    Have had the Gigabyte Aero 14 1060 for a little over a year now and love everything about it except for one major nuisance. The laptop has very limited wifi range. I very often find myself unable to see available wifi networks. Were talking networks that are half strength on my cell phone and other laptops aren't even recognized by the machine. Anyone else experienced this issue or have any ideas on how I can resolve it? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I don't have the 1060 version but the newer 1050ti version. I don't have any issue connecting to the 5ghz network upstair or downstairs in my house.

    What's the wifi card installed?

    So I also just noticed that when I connect a device to the laptop via bluetoooth it almost completely kills a full the wifi signal (15 ft from my router). Went ahead and ordered an Intel Wireless-Ac 9260 to replace the 8260 that came with it. Was planning on upgrading my SSD this weekend anyway so while I'm in there I'll check out the antenna connections then put in the upgraded wireless card. Will update as soon as I complete the antenna check and card swap. Thanks for the help so far.
