I've installed 10.10 on my laptop but I am experiencing extremely slow wlan speeds. I've tried two different wlan cards but it doesn't make a difference.

As soon as a file is found it downloads like it should, it just takes forever to locate a page or file online. It does differ though, when I keep browsing within the same page it's usually not too bad, but when I go to a new page it often needs up to 8 seconds to find the page.

I've done a traceroute to google.com with both cards but it doesn't seem to make much of a difference:
