    Wireless speeds / Keychain

    I have had 7.1 and 8.04 installed on both my laptop and desktop. I have two D-Link DWA-130 usb 8011.N cards in which I used in each. The network performance on all 4 combinations was slower than with Windows, around 12 mb/s vs 50 mb/s.

    My laptop also has an internal Broadcomm card, which I use instead of the D-Link because it works faster, even though it is a G card.

    Since my desktop is used for Midi and Audio applications, I decided to try Ubuntu Studio because I wasn't having any luck getting these types of applications to work. Anyway, after installing Ubuntu Studio, I got my D-Link DWA-130 card working with NDISWrapper as I did all the other times. I used the same drivers, the same version of NDISWrapper, and what do you know, I get the same speeds as I get with Windows!!

    Also of interest, is that I don't have to enter a keychain password during bootup on Ubuntu Studio. On my desktop I have network shared in my fstab file. When Ubuntu boots, it prompts for a keychain password. It then connects to my wireless, then mounts my shares. On my desktop, I used WICD instead of Network Manager as I don't have any shares in my fstab. Using WICD prevents the password from being asked. Now with Ubuntu Studio, I can use Network Manager, have a mount in my fstab, and don't get prompted for a password.

    Does anyone know why? I would like to have the option of using the USB Dlink on my laptop when I need the speed, and I would also like not to get prompted for a password every time I reboot and don't want to install Ubuntu Studio on it.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    Does anyone know where I could possibly find out this information? Is there a suggestion of any files, or logs to compare between the two computers to try to figure out the solution? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Brian
