T400 with 5100N intel wireless only getting 72 MB max speed.

2008-11-03, 18:33 PM

I have a Airlink 101 150N router that works at full speed (150 MB) with all my other N adapters except my new T400 that has a 5100N wireless adapter.  It only gets 72 MB rate max at full signal strength.  Any suggestions?

Found the problem.  Under Device Manager/network adapter/5100, deselect Value/Use default value (20mhz) and set to Auto.  Works MUCH faster now and says 150 Mb.
