Wireless extremely slow using Intel Wifi LInk 5100 after upgrade from F14->F15

Hello all. I guess the title says it all. I upgraded from Fedora 14 to Fedora 15 last night, and today my wireless connection is extremely slow (as in, I have a connection but most websites time out or prompt me to load "text only" versions).

Posting the relevant relevant terminal output is difficult since I am posting from a different computer, but the wireless adapter is Intel WiFi Link 5100. Websites load slowly even though network manager gives the impression that I have a strong connection. I had no problems on Fedora 14.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

This may be entirely unrelated, but I figured I'd post it anyway to see if it works.

Code:
su -
yum install b43-fwcutter wget
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2
tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2
cd broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5/driver
b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware/ wl_apsta_mimo.o
got it from wireless DOT kernel DOT org/en/users/Drivers/b43#devicefirmware (can't post links yet )

Thanks for your reply, though I don't think that is the driver for my wireless adapter and my iwlwifi driver is up to date.

We both have the same Intel Wifi Link 5100 card, if I'm not mistaken. I tried all the other suggestions, and this the only thing that worked. Worth a shot, right?

Okay thanks. I'm giving it a try.

I gave it a shot, but unfortunately my network speed did not improve. I appreciate the help.

I might give it one more day before downgrading to F14. The new version is nice, and works beautifully on my office computer, but it probably not worth another day of being unproductive at home.

Installed F14 this morning and everything is good again. F15 is beautiful but I didn't have time to work through my wireless issues.
