Can anyone help me?
I have a dual boot Acer TM 7720 with an Intel Corp PRO/Wireless 4965 AGN.
When I boot with XP connection speed is 140Mb/s but when I boot with Ubuntu 8.10 connection speed never goes above 54 Mb/s.
Seems Ubuntu is not using the draft N specs.

Thanks
Colin

yea seems to be locked down to 54 for some reason.
I would love to find a fix.

What kernel are you using? You may want to dig into info at

the Intel drivers project has been in flux a lot lately as they have been changing drivers and who knows what state they are at now. Maybe there is a newer one than yours that has better support?
