View Full Version : [ubuntu] Atheros AR5700 EG Slow Internet on 8.04

June 28th, 2008, 05:05 AM
this is my setup: PackardBell easynote with atheros ar5700 EG wireless chipset,dual-booting winXP and ubuntu 8.04 hardy.I have an internet modem connected to a D-Link wireless router.

The problem is the internet speed.In Windows XP I get normal speed (~250-300KB/s) while in Ubuntu it runs sluggishly slow (~1KB/s in the best moments)

I tried disabling IPv6 in /etc/modprobe.d/aliases and in Firefox,and sudo ifwconfig ath0 mode 50MB (or something like that,I'm writing from windows now and I don't know the exact command)

Please help,I'm desperate!
