Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
Can you try to:
1. Change your Wireless Encryption to WPA2-PSK TKIP or AES and do a speed test in every encryption change.
2. Disable WMM / WPS on the router.
3. Open Device Manager > Network Adapters > right click on the Intel Centrino 2230 > choose properties and under the Advanced Tab, set 802.11n Band Channel Width = Auto, Adhoc QoS Mode = Enabled, 802.11n Mode = Enabled.
Hope this helps
