T61P vs T43

I just upgraded to a a T61p from a T43 both using Windows XP and 2gig of Ram. I've noticed that the T61P is noticably slower on wireless and internet access. Sreeens just take longer to display and upload sites.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

No, I haven't noticed this on my T61p but I did remove Access Connections and don't use WEP or WPA (I use MAC access control - I know it's not as secure but it prevents neighbors pilfering my bandwidth).

Re: T61P vs T43

I connected directly to the router and by passed the wireless router and it is much faster. Not sure why the wireless lan connect with WEP password so slow. I am running on a router/wireless B and plan to try G later this weekend. I was thinking about checking the firmwire or driver for the wireless on Lenovo but don't know a way to do this yet.

Re: T61P vs T43

Does your T61 have "b" wireless at all?

Re: T61P vs T43

It says it does, sort of. I just haven't been able to figure out where i go to check

Re: T61P vs T43

According to this page, your T61 doesn't have "b" wireless, so that pretty much resolves the issue...

Product: ThinkPad T61p 6457-AB3

Original description: Based on 6457-5KU: T7500(2.2GHz), 2GB RAM, 120GB 5400rpm HD, 15.4in 1920x1200 LCD, 256MB nVIDIA Quadro FX 570M, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11agn(n-disabled), Bluetooth, Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Intel Turbo Memory, WinVista Business 32

Once you switch to "g" enabled router, you'll get much better results.

Cheers,

George
