Network slowness issues - T500 - Windows7

I am currently upgrading my T500 laptops (2082-94U) to Windows7 and am having what I believe to be NIC driver issues.  I loaded a fresh install of Win7 Enterprise x64 (tried standard and sp1) and now the data transfer rate when moving files on the network are extremely slow.  They never get above 72k/s.  This is happening on every 94U model that I try.  I have an older T500 and also T510s which do not see the issue.  I have tried the drivers (most recent and older versions) on both the Intel site as well as the Lenovo site with no luck. The transfer speed is fine if I load XP on the same systems.

 

Has anyone seen this and if so have you found a way to resolve?  Thanks in advance for any help...

RDC is turned on for all the models that I have installed Win7 on, problem machine type or not.

Have you tried or made your Win7 machines leave the HOMEGROUP? My laptop works better with all networks after leaving it.

Re: Network slowness issues - T500 - Windows7

These are not on a HOMEGRPOUP but on a corporate domain.  Odd thing is I have 4 models of Laptops and only one specific type of the T500 has the issue.  Has to be a NIC version on that one specific model.
