Yet another wireless problem... My wireless is going ridiculously slow. I have disabled ipv6 and that does nothing. When I try to boot with acpi=off the system just hangs. I don't know what to try next. When booting I see something about "try 8139too instead." I don't know if that means anything.

Help me please!

The 8139too is referring to a realtek wired ethernet card (NIC). About the wirelsss, what wireless card are you using (make, model, etc)? Also post the results of lspci (if the card is an internal one) or lsusb (if it's a USB card). To do that open a terminal and type the above listed commands.

Have you had any luck with trying >system>admin>hardware drivers if not, try ndiswrapper. The only other way to do it, that I know of, would be to compile a new driver from source.
