Hi,
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Inspiron 1720 that has a Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN and everything is pretty much okay except my wireless connection which is very very slow. Before I installed Linux the machine was running Vista and web pages loaded very fast, but now a web page took only a second or two is taking 45 seconds or more to load (sometimes it is timed out). I suspect that the card is running at 'B' or 'G' speeds rather than 'N'. Please note that I am an absolute neophyte when it comes to Linux so be patient I seem like a blithering idiot. Thanx for any assistance.
