I just upgraded to a a T61p from a T43 both using Windows XP and 2gig of Ram. I've noticed that the T61P is noticably slower on wireless and internet access. Sreeens just take longer to display and upload sites.
Has anyone else seen this problem?

According to this page, your T61 doesn't have "b" wireless, so that pretty much resolves the issue...
Product: ThinkPad T61p 6457-AB3

Once you switch to "g" enabled router, you'll get much better results.
