I hope someone can help me deal with this.

I have consecutively installed Mint, Fedora and ubuntu on a Toshiba Satellite C650.

The wireless connection created by Fedora is VERY fast ... and those of Mint and ubuntu are like molasses in February (connected - as in data is received - but measured in BYTES/sec).

I hope this "makes sense" to someone, for it sure doesn't to me.

I do NOT want to use Fedora ... but how can I overcome this "issue" and use one of the other distributions?

Thanks in advance for your help.
