    Negear n300 dongle = 1mbps DRIVING ME INSANE!

    Greetings all,

    Currently I'm running Linux Mint 13 Maya 64-bit.

    I installed and setup Netgear N300 wireless dongle, but I only get 1 Mbps speed download and just under for upload. My router is within 15 feet. Anybody had this problem and know a fix? Any help will be great. I will post my log script when I get home.

    Best regards,
    Ray

    Find the device name for your wireless card; let's presume it's wlan0. Try the following in Terminal and see if the transfer rate improves:

    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M
    If it does, make the change persistent by modifying the rc.local file:

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local
    Add the lines:

    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M
    just before the exit 0 line. Save it and you're done.
