I have a Thinkpad T530 and when I wake from sleep, the computer wakes pretty quickly but the internet is very slow for a few minutes. The weird thing is that it does not seem to be completely off, but pages that normally take a couple seconds or even a split second (like gmail emails) will take a minute or more to load (or times out) for a couple minutes following waking from sleep mode. Even after one page finally loads, loading a new page can still take a similarly long time. This behavior is quite consistent for all attempts to load a page every time I wake from sleep. Other than the internet, the computer seems perfectly responsive. Is this normal? Any way to fix it?

This has happened to me before, try installing updated network (ethernet) drivers.
