    Re: Slow download speed using Centrino Wireless-N 1030 with Ubuntu 12.04

    I am confident that Wild Man will help you get your wireless working properly sooner or later. However, your airwaves are chock full of WIFI signals competing for the same bandwidth. Do you live/work in a heavily built-up residential/commercial area? You may have to try finding the least congested channel to get the best Rx/Tx throughput.

    After you get your own WIFI working again, I recommend downloading and using wavemon to look at the WIFI environment around you:
    sudo apt-get install wavemon
    wavemon has to be started with root privileges to scan, so:
    sudo wavemon <F3> to scan. This will give you a graphical real-time look at the competing networks around you, their channels and their strengths. Find a channel with a combination of the least users and the least competing strengths, and set your router to that channel (remember to save, apply and reboot your router). If your laptop does not see it, reboot your laptop. Again, this is for after you have resolved your current WIFI issue.

    Hi, when you use the wireless you do need to have your ethernet unplugged, and your ethernet is using the wrong driver that is why it is so slow, but I do not do ethernet much so it is not my forte.

    Please post the content of:
    gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
    Also set your wireless settings to match the screnshots.

    Think it's important to mention that I was able to get download speeds of way over 511 KB/s using Ubuntu tethered via wi fi to my mobile phone, which is making me think there's an issue with the Router!

    Thats because it is not using the wireless driver that has problems with wifi connections.
    Please do the last thing that I asked with wired connection unplugged and let us know if it helped.

    HI Wild Man,

    I've changed the ipv4 and ipv6 settings as advised.

    The content of the iwlwifi.conf file is:

    options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1

    Did you also change the dns sever to match the other screenshot?

    Has it helped?

    Hi Wild Man,

    Yes, i changed the DNS Server to be, for the IPv4 settings. It hasn't resolved the issue unfortunately, still not able to download more than 56 KB/s.

    Do you have any other suggestions ? Really appreciate your assistance with this by the way.

    I did stumble across this information from intel regarding wireless drivers for Linux

    The instructions for downloading the the driver are rather complex and I'm reluctant to embark on a path which may make the problem worse, I've only recently crossed the border into Linux world and it's all very unfamiliar!

    We may have to try a new driver but not yet.

    Please post the output of:
    modinfo iwlwifi
