Hello, I have a Rosewill RNX-EasyN1 USB Wireless N card
Bus 001 Device 072: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter
Running Ubuntu 10.10
Problem: Getting very low speed (350b to 1 kbps down) I know for sure it is not the network. Also random disconnects.
Using fluxbox rather than metacity, connecting by running nm-applet on startup. Not sure if that matters. Maybe something that gnome starts isn't loading on startup of fluxbox? Running midori as browser, but slow in Links2 and Firefox too.
As a side note: I don't have too much memory on this system and getting more is not an option so I am trying to run on low resources here. Running top I see nm-applet is using 227m virtual, 10m res. Is it acutally using 227 of ram, or what is going on here? Is that just shared libraries? Why would a network manager applet use 227 mb of ram?
