View Full Version : [ubuntu] Slow wireless connection

April 29th, 2008, 12:25 AM
After a long and brutal episode with madwifi problems lol, my wireless works, but not as fast as it should... Back in the good ol' OS X days, I used to get somewhere around 700-900 KB/s per download; sometimes it could get to over 1.1MB/s. Now, I can't get more than 460...

I went to speedtest.net, and the results match those which I got in the OS X days. Something is blocking me from my total speed. Is there a way to speed this up, or to access the full speed I have?
