Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
I’m sorry to hear that the Laptop is connecting to the wireless network very slowly and not working as expected, re-installing the exact wireless driver will resolve this issue, below is the link to enter the downloads page and install exact Wireless driver accordingly, please click on "Select Product" then in "QUICK PATH" enter the model no. as B490 select the exact model.
Hope this helps!!!
Do post us back if the issue still persists.
