    Exclamation Ubuntu 12.10- Slow Wireless Connection

    I installed Ubuntu 12.10 a while ago, and was my first upgrade ever as I upgraded from 10.10 to 12.10. However, ever since I have installed the new version, the wireless connection has been unbelievably slow considering I am getting much less than the other Windows computers at my house. I would like to know how to fix this problem, and if any more info is needed, I will get it. Also, I have noticed that sometimes the network manager doesn't show any networks, and it only gets fixed if I restart the computer. Help me please

    Re: Ubuntu 12.10- Slow Wireless Connection

    Hi, copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back, click on the paper clip and attach the netinfo.txt file.
    Thanks

    Please do:
    Code:
    echo "options ath5k nohwcrypt=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath5k.conf
    sudo modprobe -rfv ath5k
    sudo modprobe -v ath5k
    Set your wireless setting to match the screenshots.
    Thanks

    I did those commands, and matched the settings. What should I do next?

    Close your browser and try it again. Should work after that.

    Hi, for the wireless settings to take effect you may have to reboot but changes made by the commands should work immediately.
    Thanks

    Re: Ubuntu 12.10- Slow Wireless Connection

    Well, I believe this problem still hasn't been fixed. I got an email from my internet provider which stated that my speed got enhanced. I was excited, so I followed their steps, and tested the speeds on my windows computer and ubuntu. I would also like to say that my ubuntu computer is closer to my router. I saw the speeds definitely increase to about 15 mb/s for download and 10 mb/s for upload on the windows computer. However, on the ubuntu, I still only see 5 mb/s download yet I also get 10 mb/s upload. Is my download speed getting held back because it never goes above 5 mb/s?

    Re: Ubuntu 12.10- Slow Wireless Connection

    Going to bump this as it's still going on.

    On the ubuntu computer: Your Speed Result:Download Speed: 3827 kbps (478.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 8999 kbps (1124.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

    On the windows computer I get at least 12000 kbps for download speed, but I get about the same upload speed. Any ideas because this is getting annoying.

    Go into your router and change your encryption to just wpa2 if you have that option it usually works better, and change your channel to 1 or 11.
    Thanks
