    Wifi painfully slow in Quantal

    I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 on the Gnome3 desktop environment.

    I have a Lenovo S10-2 netbook with the following specs:

    Intel® Atom™ CPU N280 @ 1.66GHz × 2
    Ram: 993.4 MiB
    Graphics: unknown (On board?)
    Ubuntu Partition: 14 GB
    OS type: 32 bit

    My Wifi connection works fine (using Network Manager) and connects automatically without any hassle. However, my transfer speeds are extremely slow.

    Its weird because some days (very rarely) I get speeds upto 60 Kb/s and when downloading something via terminal, I sometimes get as much as 95-108 Kb/s.

    But when I use transmission, the transfer speed for my torrent files stays painfully slow. As soon as I start downloading the torrent, the speed shoots up to 70-90 Kb/s but then right away it drops down and stays at 15-28 Kb/s.

    The first time I used rtorrent and downloaded a torrent via terminal, it downloaded @ 55-70 Kb/s. But now, even rtorrent gives me the same speeds as transmission. The torrent I am downloading has plenty of seeds.

    In windows I get an average speed of 50 Kb/s. BUT I HATE WINDOWS.

    So what should I do?

    Please help!!
