  2. Here's an interesting update. It appears that some IBM Thinkpads use an Intel Pro 2200BG mini pci card which has a problem connecting to Linksys routers. The symptoms are slow wireless access, and transmit speeds that start at 54 Mbps and then slows down to 24 mpbs, exactly the problems I'm having. This problem is widespread and the fix is replacing that card with a newer IBM a/b/g card based on the Atheros chipset. This is what I'm going to do and have contacted an IBM warranty center already. So for anyone that has a Thinkpad with speed issues or connection drops, that is the fix...
  3. Fallow, thanks for the link. It's not the case with the problem I'm experiencing. Signal strength is at the max, and I don't experience the same issues with the other laptops I have, only with the one in question. My wap has a 7db antenna as well, and the problem still occurs if I'm sitting right next to the wap with this one laptop in question. I did load the new drivers last night with no improvements in the performance, sad to say. So I'm inclined to think that there is something wrong with the built-in wireless nic in the laptop. This morning I did a direct connect to my router vi
  4. Will do. I just went to the IBM website and noticed there's some new drivers related to the networking components, including a new one for the nic. It's downloading now (remembering that it's slow on that computer), so it will take a while, but I'll retest things when it's done. I really appreciate your help, and steering me in the right direction....
  5. Thanks for your time and help. Guess I'll have to figure out how to get the laptop repaired. Thanks again.
  6. Same connection, different laptops both with built in wireless. I'm guessing then that the IBM might have a defective NIC, correct?
  7. BUT, here's the results from my other laptop, much different results: WEB100 Kernel Variables: Client: localhost/ AckPktsIn: 3154 AckPktsOut: 0 BytesRetrans: 102200 CongAvoid: 2940 CongestionOverCount: 0 CongestionSignals: 5 CountRTT: 2983 CurCwnd: 40880 CurMSS: 1460 CurRTO: 270 CurRwinRcvd: 921600 CurRwinSent: 16304 CurSsthresh: 5840 DSACKDups: 0 DataBytesIn: 0 DataBytesOut: 8957100 DataPktsIn: 0 DataPktsOut: 6135 DupAcksIn: 142 ECNEnabled: 0 FastRetran: 5 MaxCwnd: 91980 MaxMSS: 1460 MaxRTO: 300 MaxRTT: 110 MaxRwinRcvd: 92160

  9. I'm hoping someone can help me with some speed issues I'm having. I have two laptops using XP connecting to a 6mb Comcastconnection via wireless G. I've loaded cablenut and TCP optimizer on both and have the settings equal on both computers. However, one is able to connect at 7mb and the other only at 387 kbps. Upload is slow too. I can't figure out for the life of me why this one laptop is so slow. Hopefully someone can help out with some suggestions. Here's some data: TCP properties for IP = (xxxxxx) Browser/OS = Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/2
  10. 6mb Plan, San Francisco Area. I did the tests two hours apart and they are pretty much the same: ::..
