T61p wireless connectivity very slow

2008-06-27, 16:36 PM

my T61p seems to be very slow on my home network. I have other laptop (dell) running on my home network and it dont seem to have any issues. I also have other device ex. a DECT 6.0 phone system in my home. My bandwidth test reports >5Mbps. I tried a few things mentioned in another post http://forums.lenovo.com/lnv/board/message?board.id=T_Series_Thinkpads&thread.id=8902 , but even that didnt help much. The wireless seems to work fine at work :(. any idea how to fix this or even troubleshoot this ?

Solved! See the solution

Is there something on your home network that would be using up a ton of bandwith? Like a mp3 download prgram? Also, maybe try changing the channel on your router, could be some interference with the phone.

ok...i installed the available thinkvantage updates, made sure the wireless profiles are configured for maximum performance and that did the trick. Much better speed now. Thanks to forum members for the help.
