View Full Version : [lubuntu] Very Slow Wireless Card (TP-Link TL-WN951N)

January 10th, 2013, 11:59 PM
I had a USB wireless card which works well, it was a bit slower than the laptop's wireless card though so I thought I may upgrade but I getting a nicer wireless PCI card.

I got the TP-Link TL-WN951N which uses the Ath9k drivers I believe, it works out of box, however I get terrible speeds running it. Going to speed test I get a download speed of 0.9 Mbs with the the USB card I get 7.0 Mbs on the laptop I get up to 20 sometimes even 25mbs.

Anyone have any experience with this kind of problem? Or know a good wireless card that's extremely supported for Linux? Running Lubuntu 12.10 if that matters.
