    MUCH faster, a consistent 300kbps download speed. DNS is extremely fast. I even tried with Jolicloud too, much faster than Ubuntu. This is driving me crazy. I do love Ubuntu but most of everything I do, I do online, which forces me to switch back to Windows most of the time.

    If it's of any help, the internet seems to be more responsive and faster when using the live-CD of Ubuntu.

    Re: PeppermintOS wifi speed on Ubuntu

    Since we use Peppermint One on our Laptop and Peppermint Ice on our
    eeePC the answer is clear, you should use Peppermint.

    We do use Ubuntu on the Desktop but do not have your problem but I have read, in passing, that some have had the problem you describe.

    I have been trying to locate the posts without much luck but I recall reading about the problem. Have you maintained your updates or has that been too slow? It may have been corrected by now.

    Yes, I update as often as I can. I usually have to leave it over night though as the download speed can be bytes, to maybe 3kbps if I'm lucky.

    UPDATE: I followed the steps here http://usingnix.wordpress.com/2010/1...slow-internet/ to disable Ipv6 in grub, and now get a healthy 600kbps download speed. DNS seems faster. I will let everyone know if it goes back to being slow.
