Hello, im new to your forum and also to Ubuntu. i recently replaced vista with Ubuntu 8.10 x64 on my dell xps m1710. But i am having trouble getting my wireless N card working all the way. On windows (same PC), Speedtest.net told me my connection (Down) was ~17mb/s. On ubuntu, it is 3.3mb/s. I am using an internal Intel pro wireless card: Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN. I am able to get internet, but not nearly as fast as i should be getting so any help/advice would be great. Also, can i view microsoft word documents on Ubuntu "out of the box"?
