    Today was the first time using the update system so I was pretty jazzed. It took forever as my t500 is new but that's to be expected. Anyway, afterwards I had major issues with my wifi. It would cut out randomly and I would have to hit fn+f5 to turn it back on.

    After several reinstalls of different drivers, I decided to just uninstall the Access Connections program. A few hours later and I've had no issues. I just wanted to put this out there in case someone else runs into something similar.

    I removed Access as well. In the beginning it seemed like a pretty neat application. After a while it just seemed bloated and dragging my system down when unplugged. Everything works fine without it.

    When it comes to wi-fi, I prefer to install as little as possible. If it works, I won't tamper with it.

    I also found out that the microphone didn't work if I installed the sound drivers. So there. :p

    Word of caution to SP2 users changing the XML file to trick TVSU into thinking they have a supported OS - It will probably work fine for most updates, but if Lenovo releases an update that is not compatible with SP2, you will be on your own - no support from Lenovo when it breaks. That is why it is not supported. They are not testing the updates with SP2 yet...
