View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wi-Fi Issues with 13.04 on Aspire V5-571

April 26th, 2013, 07:22 PM
Yesterday I upgraded from Ubuntu 12.10 to 13.04. I absolutely loved it until I realized the wireless connection would only last for about five minutes and then become unusable. I searched all over and ended up trying this (http://www.unixmen.com/resolve-slow-connexion-when-using-wifi-in-ubuntu-1104-natty-narwhal/) and this (http://www.techdrivein.com/2012/09/slow-erratic-wifi-ubuntu1204-fixed.html). Nothing was working so I eventually reverted back to using 12.10 and everything is working great again. I would love to be using 13.04 right now so I am asking for help with this issue.

Here is some of the info I got for my system after I re-installed 12.10, let me know if any other information would be helpful. Thanks!
