T400 Intel wireless -excellent connection- at least 75% slower than 4 year old systems' abg wireless

2010-04-17, 21:38 PM

what gives?  This is brand new and the throughput is horrible.  I'd an earlier post about it constantly dropping and reconnecting, but that got no response either.  What good is a 3 year warranty when they give us only each other to discuss the problems with?  Big $$ No Value.

My wireless on this T400 is useless.

What did support say when you called them?

 

They helped me with a tough wifi issue.  In case you haven't called yet, here's the #: 1-800-426-7378

Thank you Z, I forgot to offer that in my terse response.  I am glad someone out there in the Ether is reviewing the forums.

Seriously, that's a surprise.  The contact # page says 24/7:  Worldwide Support Center phone list

 

They should change that.

 

[edit] No, maybe they shouldn't.  I just called them (it's Saturday,  1605 PDT) and they answered.  Used the number up-thread.   "Jack" in tech just said that some of their other laptops aren't 24/7.  You _did_ call the ThinkPad number?

 

I'm confused...

 

In the meantime,  what is your test config?  Which wifi card, what router, etc.  Maybe someone around here can duplicate your setup.  What transfer rates are you seeing?  What did you get with your "golden" machine?

have you used the following settings in your wireless card property page?

 

1. Set roaming aggressiveness to minimum/low

 

2. Set power output to maximum

 

3. Switch off any power saving modes that you may have.
