Which WiFi adapter driver?

2008-09-27, 0:28 AM

I have a T-41 2373 4GU.  I hardly ever use it, but took it out today to a few wifi sites and it is acting a bit flaky. (slow, doesn't see some networks then it does, etc.) 

 

I notice in "system" it lists a driver by Altheros.  I don't remember seeing that before.  Can anyone tell me what the best driver  is for this laptop running  XP? 

 

thanks!  (other than to give you the model number, I have no idea how to find out what wifi network card is in this thing!)

Welcome to the forum!

 

Your T41 has an IBM a/b/g wireless card based on Atheros chipset, which is likely the best card available for that machine. You may want totry updating or rollingback the driver if you're not satisfied with performance of  the wireless card.

 

This is the correct driver for the aforementioned card:

After the download, it must be unpacked from the following directory: C>Drivers>Win>Wlanath

 

Hope this hellps.

Cheers,

George
