Centrino Wireless Lan Problems

  Viv-208691 22:12 24 Nov 2004

Hi there, I have recently bought a new Sony Vaio laptop with Centrino capabilities. I use it in the same place that I used my old lapto and old PC which used wireless network card and PCMCIA card (both Dlink) respectively. However, my Centrino laptop, in the same position, registers the connection to be just 1mbps when it used to be 54 using my old machines!!

Does anyone have any idea why it is being so incredibly slow? The signal strength is VERY GOOD.

Thanks, please assist me.

Maybe your Centrino Laptop is being more honest, but even 1mbs is more than enough for the normal BB (512 connection)download speed of 100ish kbs

Maybe your right, but I have been noticing slower broadband speeds too. Any more suggestions? Ive got latest driver.

click here and do a speed test from your desktop and laptop and compare the results. Please post here for reference.

please look at this. Are these ok? These results are for my 'slower' new laptop. should i be complaining!?

I dont currently have access to the other laptop but please reply with your ideas.

Thanks ever so much.

Should I expect more or are these results ok?
